Accidental Damage - Buildings
By adding Accidental Damage to the Buildings Insurance policy, we’ll provide cover for visible damage to your client’s property which happens suddenly and has not been caused on purpose or inevitably, such as a tenant nailing through a pipe when putting a picture on the wall, or putting a foot through the ceiling when up in the loft.
Accidental Damage - Contents
Accidental Damage cover can be added to the Buildings and Contents Insurance policy to provide cover for visible damage to your client’s contents which happens suddenly and has not been caused on purpose or inevitably, such as the television being accidentally knocked off its stand by a tenant, or a spillage on the carpet.
Your client can claim up to £2,500 per month for rent arrears that may have accrued under the tenancy agreement (maximum of £25,000 per annum) and up to £100,000 of legal expenses to cover fees that your client may incur when evicting the tenant.
Note: Any dispute arising within the first 60 days of the period of insurance will be excluded if the tenancy agreement commenced prior to the inception of this policy.
Landlords Emergency Cover provides a 24-hour service with access to approved tradesmen to resolve a range of emergencies, for example, your client’s tenants being completely locked out of the property, or complete failure of the heating or electrics. Call out charges, parts and labour costs are covered up to £1,000 (including VAT) with no excess to pay.

We want to let you know...
As with all landlord's insurance policies there are circumstances when cover can't be offered or a claim paid. For example, any loss or damage caused by storm or flood to fences, hedges and gates and any loss or damage caused by pets.
These are only examples. For full details of what's covered and what's not covered please read our Landlord's Insurance policy document. Alternatively you can find further information in our Insurance Product Information Document (IPID) for Landlords Insurance.
