Home emergency cover for landlords

If something crucial like the boiler or the electricity fails at your rental property, you’ll want to get it sorted as quickly as possible to limit the damage to your house and the impact on your tenants.

With landlord home emergency cover you’ll have access to a 24/7 helpline, so that you can get the assistance of an approved contractor at any time of day or night.

What does landlord home emergency insurance cover?

Landlord insurance with home emergency cover provides emergency assistance for landlords if your property’s plumbing, drainage, heating or power supply fails, or if damage to your doors or windows compromises the security of your property. It can also cover the cost of alternative accommodation for your tenants while the problem gets fixed.

Plus, if you need to make a claim on your home emergency insurance, there’s no excess to pay. Excess is a contribution that you would normally have to make towards the cost of some insurance claims.
