Stand alone Rent Guarantee insurance?

Hi Martin

My understanding is that you can only initiate a claim in tandem with eviction proceedings. If a tenant cannot be evicted until March, then that's when the eviction and claim will start, not before. Don't expect any backdated rent as eviction proceedings had not started.

Speak with your insurer directly though, they may have a different interpretation, but if they do, make sure you get it in writing so you can call upon it when/if needed.

I really do urge careful consideration before buying this product - read documents carefully and understand the limits of what is on offer.... Read More

Stand alone Rent Guarantee insurance?

Hi Martin

Rent guarantee is an add on policy. It can be sold stand alone. Check online, you may find someone that will sell it to you.

As a brokerage, we have taken the decision to no longer sell this product as we do not believe it represents value to customers.

With the eviction ban, you are buying something you may not be able to claim against until at least March next year. The legal expenses element may be active straightaway.

I hope this helps.... Read More

Unexplained insurance premium hike?

Hi Gunga Din,

There are many reasons why the policy price may be increasing; from claims history to inflationary rises to profiteering. I don't know your case in detail so cannot advise why your price is going up.

17.7% suggests an event of some kind pushing the price up; not likely to be Covid unless your insurer is particularly exposed elsewhere on it.

Happy to review this with you over the phone if you like, basically all I need is the total sum insured, any claims history in the last 5 years and I'll be able to tell you whether we could save you money or if your current insurer is doing a good job on price.

If I can help, please call on 01832-735388 or drop me a line at jason@thehomeinsurer.co.uk.... Read More

Rent Guarantee and Legal Expenses provider gone bust?

Reply to the comment left by Paul Hawkins at 24/08/2020 - 17:18
Hi Paul

Landlord Legal Expense cover is still for sale. Ours costs £30 for the year, but I'd suggest you speak with your existing broker/supplier and ask them ref their offering. It will offer legal defence/pursuit and assistance in most cases for you - and should have a legal helpline you can talk to for advice.... Read More
