Landlord Insurance

Do I need Landlord insurance cover?

The Landlord is responsible for insuring the property and that the insurance policy provides adequate cover when the property is both tenanted and vacant. Also known as buy-to-let insurance, Landlords need third party liability insurance to meet any costs and damages if a member of the public suffers an injury, or damage to their property. It can also include buildings insurance to cover the orginal structure as well as any improvements or renovations. If you're renting out a furnished property, it is advisable to include contents insurance as this can protect everything from your furniture to the TV you provide to your tenants. Finally, you may consider loss of rental income if the property is uninhabitable due to fire, flooding or major damage.  This additional cover can also be included. 

What does Landlord insurance cover?

  • Third party liability
  • Contents Insurance
  • Buildings Insurance
  • Loss of rent

If you have a number of properties, Sovereign Insurance Services can offer a single policy that covers not only your let properties but your main residence and holiday homes, anywhere in the world.

Tenant Insurance

Do I need insurance cover?

If you are renting a property that is furnished it is the landlord’s responsibility to insure the contents of the property that are owned by the Landlord. The Landlord’s insurance will NOT cover any personal possessions belonging to the tenant. It is therefore advisable to insure you own personal belongings against theft, flood and fire damage.

What does Tenant insurance cover?

  • Tenant liability cover
  • Personal posessions both inside and away from the home
  • Rent or alternative accommodation if you are unable to live in your home due to damage
  • Cover for any improvements that you make to your rented property
