Public liability insurance: a must for landlords

We know how important your equity is to you, which is why we will help you find the right insurance for you and your property.

We have excellent relationships with banks, lenders and building societies and are, therefore, able to offer you great deals on insurance. With our experience and contacts, you can be confident that you will receive the best protection possible - whatever type of property you own.

What is public liability insurance?

Before signing up to public liability insurance, it is worth finding out everything you need to know about the product. Being a landlord involves more than just finding tenants and making sure the house or flat is kept in a good condition. You also need to protect yourself in case an accident occurs in the property that could affect your residents.

Lots of incidents regularly happen inside a busy household, some of which your tenant can argue you may be responsible for. For instance, someone might slip on the stairs as a result of a badly-fitted carpet and blame you for their subsequent injuries.

Having public liability insurance means you are protected in the event that a tenant makes a claim against for you for an incident such as this, as well as for damage to their personal property. Typical policies cover landlords for any awards given to the claimant and their legal costs if you are found to be at fault. Your own legal costs will also be taken care of by your insurance provider, whether you are found liable for the damage or injury or not.

While you might hope that you won't have to face these issues, if you do come up against a claim while letting out a property, it could cause you financial difficulties. This risk is magnified if you own a buy-to-let flat or house over a number of years or if you have more than one asset.
