What is Residential Landlord Insurance?
Residential landlord insurance, also known as domestic property insurance or buy-to-let insurance, is a form of property insurance that includes a combination of covers that protect the landlord’s interests in the property. The covers offered range from accidental damage to property and theft, to loss of rental income.
If you have a comprehensive domestic property insurance policy in place, you will receive financial reimbursement in the event of an insured risk happening. A well-rounded landlord insurance package (like the one provided by IC Insurance Solutions) will fully cover your rental property with specific protection.
