Today I will be covering buy to let insurance, which landlords it relates and some of the benefits of this kind of insurance. I will also be looking at let property insurance and give you my recommendations of what to look for when you are out shopping for insurance for your property which are renting. The third topic which will be discussed is rented property insurance this insurance is also very similar to the other two insurance policies mentioned above. So to start with the first type of insurance mentioned. This insurance policy is for landlords who have taken out a mortgage for a property with the intention to rent it out. Many banks offer specific insurance policies for this market. Many landlords chose this mortgage as the criteria to buy a house through this process is much easier as it considered as a business mortgage. So the actual mortgage offer is based on how much rental value the property has. So the bank is looking to see if the rental income from property will cover the mortgage and still have surplus income on top of this to ensure that if there is a void between tenancies the landlord will be able to cover this comfortably.
Let property insurance is similar to the other polices mentioned above. The purpose of this insurance is to ensure that the landlord is covered if there is a long void between tenancies and the property remains vacant.

So as far as the landlord can prove to the insurance company they are actively seeking new tenants that insurance company may be willing to payout to cover the void periods in between tenancies. Buy to let insurance is also very similar and gives the same benefit to landlords. Rented property insurance is also fairly popular and landlords can get cover for periods when the property is vacant or even if a tenant leaves the property before the end of their tenancy.
Rented property insurance is also made to cover all costs relating to damages caused by tenants whilst the property is in their care. But the landlord has to prove to the insurance company that tenants were carefully selected and were given possession of the property based on their previous track record. Let property insurance also covers your mortgage for periods when your property may be under repairs due to damage caused by tenants. The cost of the damages is also covered for this period. Buy to let insurance policies allow you to claim once a year. So if your property was damaged accidentally by tenants or due to natural disasters your property will be covered under this policy and any damages will be covered by the insurance company.
