A First for the Market

Our rent protection scheme provides cover for over £1.2bn in annualised rent, for over 100,000 UK properties. We’re using our might to enhance our market leading products.

Effective from 1st March; HomeLet rent protection will provide:

Missed rental payments until vacant possession of the property or for up to 15 months, whichever comes first. This is unique in the market.

Legal Expenses cover for up to £100,000, doubling the current cover level.

Cover should a tenant defend the action taken, that means that we’ll continue to pay the claim until the challenge has been resolved.

What is rent protection?

Even the best tenants can fall on hard times and over half (58%) of landlords and agents cited a tenant being in arrears as the most common reason for ending a tenancy according to Government findings.* Whilst it’s natural to be sympathetic, your rental income still needs to be paid. Give yourself the reassurance that you’re in safe hands.

If tenants can’t or won’t pay, you and your landlords need to be protected. We know the importance of protecting your rental investment and we can offer you a range of services designed to give you unrivalled peace of mind. Our effective protection is there for you in case things take a turn for the worse.

Unrivalled Experience

We’re not traditional.

Traditional Claims Handlers act as a go between for loss adjusters, legal professionals, contractors, retailers and the Policy Holder, usually handling several different lines of insurance. They’re often outsourced and are restrained by processes set by third parties. The Policy Holder is just one small part of a large tangled web of processes and people.

We’re unique.

We specialise in Rent Guarantee and associated Legal Expenses. We don’t outsource any part of our claims handling, we handle it all in house from start to finish. We’re not restrained by third parties and our customers only have to deal with us.

Our claims handling experience is unrivalled.
