Many insurance companies will not provide cover for DSS tenants as they are considered to be too risky and they aren’t always financially able to pay their rent.
As a landlord you may not be able to receive your rent directly from the council although this is what used to happen a few years ago, now tenants are solely responsible for paying their rent.
We can provide landlord insurance that is perfectly suited to DSS tenants, this would include:
- Loss of rent - We cover loss of rent following damage to the buildings following an insured peril it also covers alternative accommodation.
- Trace and access cover - This includes getting to the source of a water or gas leak in your home and repairing any damage.
- Cover for subsidence damage - If your property moves on its foundations due to expanding and contracting clay soil.
When you’re applying for landlord insurance it’s important to choose a contract where your policy does not get invalidated due to the type of tenant you allow to let your property.
