Built for landlords – your income protection

If a crisis hit and your tenants had to move out, what would be the cost to you, in rent? Loss of rent cover protects you against this risk. The insurance pays out in the event of a claim for loss or damage caused, for example by fire or flood, that means your tenants can no longer stay in the property.

Loss of rent vs tenant default – loss of rent insurance won’t protect you against your tenants simply defaulting on their rent. That’s covered by tenant default insurance (sometimes called rent guarantee insurance).

What is alternative accommodation cover?

If you’re contractually obliged to provide alternative accommodation in the event that your property becomes uninhabitable, alternative accommodation insurance will cover this cost. The property must be uninhabitable because of a specified and insured event in order for this cover to pay out.

What will loss of rent insurance cover?

In most cases landlords are not contractually obliged to provide alternative accommodation. In these circumstances, if your property becomes uninhabitable as a result of an insured event like fire or flood, loss of rent insurance will cover the income you’ve lost as a result of your tenants no longer paying rent.

It is a very good and easy to use service. I've been a customer for several years and the renewal system is very straight forward. I've always found the quotes competitive too. I'd definitely recommend Simply Business.
