Should landlords have the right to refuse DSS tenants?10:43 AM, 20th May 2019

After a pipe leak caused a £130k claim (not quite yet settled) I find myself unable to find tenanted insurance. The letting agent insists on landlord insurance and my obligation to provide it is written into their standard tenancy agreements.
The insurance lapsed in June 2017, but I couldn’t get meaningful cover while renovations were ongoing.
My existing insurance provider “cannot offer me terms” and so refused me a quote.
So I face having to sell the property as I’ve been blighted as a landlord. Or maybe just the property is blighted, yet to find out.
Where can I go with this?
