Stop worrying about your boiler with Landlord Emergency Cover

February is the heart of winter and the month when the boiler in your let property is being constantly used to provide hot water. If it is past its best then maybe you should consider Landlord Emergency Cover to protect it and your tenants.Landlord Insurance

In the last two years I personally have paid for a new boiler in two properties and paid another £600 in fixing another two. The cost of a replacement fan is £275 fitted. A circuit board is about the same. A call out is £90 by itself.

With Landlord Emergency Cover, I would have had up to £750 contributed to the costs of the new boilers I bought and had the repairs covered without dipping into my own pocket.

I would also have missed the stress and hassle of arranging the tradesmen and approving payments. I could live without those and I am sure you could as well.

Landlord Emergency Cover is affordable, flexible and has unlimited claims. It also provides a phone number for your tenants to call if there is an issue before they notify you. This is a great back-up and money saver, especially if you are worried about an old boiler or tired electrics or other problems that you think may be coming.

With costs of Landlord Emergency Insurance ranging from £47.99-£69.99 per year, the amount of money it can save you is clear if you have a problem. And if you have more than one claim, it will save you again and again for the duration of the insurance.

Policy coverage and options range from £250 per claim up to £750 per claim depending on your needs on a Silver, Gold or Platinum offer. For full details visit here: http://www.property118.com/landlord-emergency-cover/70761/

Operated for Property 118 by Surewise.com, a London based business, the flexible and fixed price Landlords Emergency cover on offer is excellent. By visiting the website you can read a straightforward explanation of exactly what you are getting. You can make as many claims against your policy as you like throughout the year, and don’t forget, if you have more than 3 properties you could be entitled to a discount.

The only problem with all of these types of policies are the restrictions, for example; will not pay unless the boiler has been serviced, or properly registered, or installed within the manufacturer's instructions, or the boiler is too old.

Seemed a good idea at the time until it becomes time to claim.

Best advice is to install a good quality boiler.

no mention of landlord's annual certificate by surewise!. how about a combined insurance cover for landlords, incorporating gas and electrical certificates, as well as emergency covers and Building Insurance. Any clear policy rewarding/fining for high/low/no claims.

My experience told me otherwise: at Property 118's recommendation, I signed up to Landlord Emergency Services (called Surewise) for all my properties at the same time. Unfortunately, when one of my boilers broke down 7 weeks later in the middle of the chilly winter, I phoned Surewise for help. They first claimed my Gas Safety Certificate was not marked with annual services (but it was not supposed to be), so declined cover. When eventually they accepted that boiler service was in place, it took them more than 2 days to send an engineer after my many phone chases. When an engineer failed to fix the problem, Surewise (via the engineer) advised me that my boiler was more than 20 years old, so not eligible for cover, but my boiler was in fact a pretty young 5-year old Pottertons (installed in Dec 2009/Jan 2010). Worried about the wellbeing of the tenants (a family with a yound child) without heating or hot water, I paid for a local plumber who fixed the boiler almost instantly. Naturally, I wanted to cancel all my policies, but Surewise said they were over the cooling off period, so no refund applicable. I felt that I had paid for something cheap but completely useless. A lesson learned.
