Tenant liability insurance

You have saved hard for your deposit, and will need that money at the end of your tenancy. Your tenancy agreement makes you legally responsible for any damages caused to your landlord’s contents, fixtures and fittings.

Typical claims include:
  • Accidental damage to carpets – iron and hair straightener burns, wine, coffee spills, etc
  • Breakages to bathroom furniture, kitchen hobs, etc
  • Damage to worktops – burns, chips, dents etc.
Our tenant’s liability insurance policy provides you with a choice of cover limits for an annual policy:
  • £2,500 each and every claim (£49.50 premium) or
  • £5,000 each and every claim (£62.50 premium).

These premiums are for 12 months/per annum. Policy excess: £100 each and every claim.

Cover for your own contents

Even if you are renting a furnished property, you will have contents of your own, including personal possessions which are items you will take away from the home (mobile phones, laptops, tablets, camera equipment, jewellery, etc.)

There is no legal requirement for you to hold insurance for your own contents, however could you afford to replace your belongings in the event of a claim?

Claim examples:
  • Damage caused to sofa and other contents by water damage from washing machine leak in flat above. Claim value £4,500
  • Mobile phone stolen. Claim value £799
  • Tenant spills coffee onto their new laptop, also staining the landlord’s carpet. Claim value £1,649 for laptop and £475 for the carpet (£2,124.00 total claim value).

Income protection

How would you continue to pay your rent if you were unable to work because of illness or injury?

73% of tenants were reported not to have a plan in place if they became too ill to work for three months or more.
