Why you need landlord insurance
Whether you are purchasing a property as an investment, or inherited property from a family member, this represents a high value investment and you need to ensure you have the relevant insurance in place to protect, not only your investment, but you as the landlord too.
If you own a tenanted property across the Channel Islands or UK, Islands can ensure you have the appropriate insurance for your needs. There are a number of risks that landlords are faced with including fire damage, tenant injuries, burst pipes, theft and rental loss.
At Islands, we understand the importance of having a tailored insurance policy that can cover your unique needs as a landlord when letting or leasing a property. Our flexible policies can offer a great level of protection with benefits that include coverage of all your properties under one policy, legal liabilities cover of £5 million, and a 24-hour helpline. Our professional team here at Islands would be delighted to assist you in choosing a policy that suits your own personal needs.
Covers & benefits provided
Our landlords insurance is comprehensive and designed with Channel Islanders in mind.
Whether you own or rent the buildings you need to consider insurance not just for the bricks and mortar of the property but also any internal improvements you have made, such as installing a new kitchen or bathrooms. Any external outbuilding, driveways, walls etc. also need to be taken into consideration when insuring the premises for their full rebuilding costs (including professional fees and the cost of site clearance).
Protect your income and re-home your tenant(s) should your property become uninhabitable following an insured event, such as fire, flood or storm damage.
Cover for third party injury & property damage included as standard for up to £5,000,000 with a further available option to increase to £10,000,000.
Coverage in the unfortunate event that your tenants damage your property.
Do you let your property furnished? Ensure these items are also covered.
