Buy-to-let insurance

Landlord insurance such as Rent Guarantee Insurance (sometimes called Tenant Default insurance and Loss of Rent insurance) can protect you from the financial disaster wrought by non-payment of rent.

You can also insure against rental voids, where your property is not rented out.

It also makes sense to check that your buildings and contents cover is adequate enough to cover eventualities such as properties flooding, which may make your buy-to-let property untenantable.

It could be worth speaking to a broker who is a specialist in landlord insurance, to ensure that you are properly protected.
