LANDLORDS RENT AND LEGAL PROTECTION


Landlords Rent and Legal Protection


BEING A LANDLORD MEANS SIGNIFICANT FINANCIAL COMMITMENT, AND AS WITH ANY INVESTMENT YOU'LL WANT TO REDUCE YOUR RISK WHERE YOU CAN

We take our job as your letting agent very seriously, so it is as important to us to make sure your property is properly looked after as it is for you.

Because of this we partner with a third party referencing agency to screen potential tenants, and we’re confident doing this means we get good tenants for you from the outset.

However, anyone can have a change of circumstances and we’ve all heard about examples of redundancy, relationship breakdowns, ill health or bankruptcy, leaving tenants:

  • Unable to pay the rent
  • Unwilling to move out at the end of the tenancy
  • Causing a delay in you regaining possession of your property

As a letting agent that cares, we have a Rent and Legal Protection insurance policy and as an exclusive benefit of partnering with us, our landlords have the advantage of opting for an interest in our policy.
