Several years ago my business partners and I were approached by an insurance broker who told us we could save a lot of money by combining our landlords insurance policies into a block policy. This was the beginning of our landlords buying group.
At that time we were in the business of arranging mortgages so we told our landlord clients how much money we we saving. They combined their landlords insurance policies with our block policy and so the scheme started to grow.
The bigger our landlords buying group became the more negotiating power we gained.
As time went by the word spread and before long hundreds of landlords had joined the group. We have switched insurance providers a few times when we have found better deals and we continue to shop around. To fund the administration we take a very small commission from the scheme provider. Some landlords have reported saving as much as 50% on their renewal premiums at the point of switching from their insurance provider to the current provider to our landlords buying group.
It’s fair to say that not everybody joining our landlords buying group scheme can save money as some insurance risks are not compatible with the scheme provider. However, it costs nothing to join our landlords buying group and nothing to get a quote, hence you have nothing to lose. What’s more, if our group scheme provider doesn’t consider your property(ies) to be a “standard risk” we now work with other specialist insurance providers who will GUARANTEE to beat any like for like landlords insurance renewal quotation.
