Ensuring your buy-to-let property is appropriately insured should be high on the priority list for your investment. This is where buy-to-let insurance kicks in, which is specialist cover designed for people who rent out properties. This type of insurance is often also referred to as let property insurance and will cover amongst other items liability as owner of the building.
As a let property owner, you know your needs often differ to those of other landlords. You need a flexible policy with optional cover such as employer’s liability, terrorism and rent indemnity, but it should all be delivered within a competitive buy-to-let insurance quote.
It is quite often the case that some providers of let property insurance quotes will not be available to talk to over the phone, however rest assured that if you have a question about your buy-to-let quote simply pick up the phone and Protect my Let will be happy to help.
Buy-to-let insurance for your buildings can also be purchased with contents cover if you provide furnished property to your tenants. If you need contents cover then liability for contents is automatically included within the quote.

As with most insurance products available there are some items which insurers are unable to cover on let property insurance. Specialist cover will be needed for property undergoing renovation or if it is without a tenant for a significant period of time. Other restrictions will apply if the property is not occupied for periods in excess of 14 days.
Landlord Insurance Legal Cover
Legal expenses are automatically included on our buy-to-let insurance quotes to give you that extra peace of mind. Benefit from up to £100,000 cover for legal expenses for a variety of disputes and defences, repossession of the property and recovery of rent arrears.
Rent Indemnity cover options are also available which can pay rent owed to you. This cover requires you to have performed a tenant reference on the tenant(s) before they took occupation of the property and have a signed tenancy agreement in place.
Other excesses, terms and conditions apply so please read the full wording to ensure you qualify for this cover.
