Landlord insurance

Landlord insurance is designed to protect your property from any damages as a result of letting it out. The policy will cover the building and any of your contents you have furnished the property with. Your tenants should have their own contents insurance for their personal belongings.

By taking our landlord insurance you will benefit from cover for malicious damage or vandalism by your tenants and alternative accommodation cover to rehouse your tenants after a major incident such as a flood or fire. You can also benefit from Legal Expenses cover which provides unlimited legal advice and legal costs up to £100,000. For more information please visit our landlord page.

We understand that making a claim can be stressful, so we aim to make it as easy and as straightforward as possible for you. First check your policy documents to make sure you are covered for the type of claim. Then call your insurer with your policy number, personal details and information about what you are claiming for. It may also be a good idea to take photos of your items or keep receipts in case they are lost. The number to call in order to make a claim can be found in your policy documents.

As Saga is an insurance intermediary; we will place your business with an insurer, who will agree to cover any claims you make under your Saga policy. The £25 cost of this service is charged under a separate contract which we need to disclose to you. This does not inflate the cost of your cover as it is included in your total cost.

A policy excess is the amount of money you contribute towards the cost of a claim, for example, if your excess is £100, you will pay the first £100 towards the cost of the claim. Please note, if you are making a claim on both your buildings and contents then you will need to pay the excess on both parts.
