Landlord insurance with boiler cover FAQ

Whether you’re new to buying landlord insurance or you’ve been letting your property for a while, here are the answers to some commonly asked questions about landlord boiler insurance. You can also check out our landlord insurance FAQs.

  • As a landlord, you’re responsible for the living conditions of your tenants. As a result, you need to make sure you provide a boiler in good working condition.

  • If you do need to make a claim related to your boiler, bear in mind that you’ll need to show proof of annual gas and boiler checks. If these aren’t completed, your claim may not be eligible. They’re a key requirement for most UK landlords, so try to schedule them in with your tenants well in advance.

  • No, this policy isn’t a maintenance contract. It doesn’t cover the cost of day-to-day

    maintenance, which you’ll be responsible for.

  • Home insurance is required when you want to insure the home you’re living in against accidental loss or damage.

    Landlord insurance is different – it’s required when you own a property that you rent out to a third party, and don’t live in yourself. It covers different insurance risks from a home policy, taking into account the type of tenant you rent to and how long you’ve owned the property. It also allows you to insure the property and protect yourself against things like loss of rental income, and malicious damage caused by your tenants.

  • You can add a range of other important covers to your landlord insurance policy, all while keeping it simple with a single premium and a single renewal date. You might consider these covers:
