Buy to let insurance


Buy to let insurance is required by landlords to insure their buildings and contents. Since a normal home insurance policy is not adequate when the resident is not the owner, a buy to let insurance policy must be purchased instead.

Covers Provided

The three main covers provided by a buy to let insurance policy are:

  • The Buildings : (the sum insured must equal the rebuilding cost, which may be more or less than the market value)
  • The Contents : (Only the landlord's contents can be covered. The tenant need to arrange cover for themselves.
  • Property owner's liability : (provided automatically with the buildings cover)

More about the insurance policy

Our preferred buy to let insurance policy is underwritten by SAGIC - Salvation Army General Insurance Company - A highly ethical company whom we have found provide not only cheap rates but also excellent claims service. As well as a low excess (75.00 with a 150.00 or 250.00 option) accidental damage is available for all tenancy types.

Example rates

Premiums start from 79.82 to insure a property with a rebuilding cost of 100,000 anywhere in the UK except the London Area. Naturally premiums increase if the property costs more to rebuild, if a lower excess is required, and if the landlord has had claims or the tenancy agreement is not between the landlord and the tenant.
