What insurance does a landlord need?
Although landlord insurance isn't compulsory, you do have a range of legal obligations to your tenants. For example, you must ensure that your property has an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) and that a Gas Safe registered engineer performs an annual gas safety check. It's also your responsibility as a landlord to ensure hot water is accessible from the kitchen, toilet and bathroom while also maintaining the health of your rental property's boiler. So it pays to avoid expensive call-outs and unexpected repairs with cover that's designed with you in mind.
What's covered in my landlord cover?
Our landlord cover includes plumbing, boiler and central heating cover for rental accommodation, depending on what you are interested in. All our boiler covers also come with a Gas Safety Certificate.
Who can buy landlord cover?
These insurance products are for landlords who own a house, bungalow or a flat. However, you may find that some of our landlord insurance packages vary depending on whether your rental property is a house or a flat.
What is plumbing and drainage cover?
Plumbing and drainage cover is insurance for your rental property's pipes, drains, sinks and toilets, as well as the water supply pipe.
It offers peace of mind that, should your tenants experience a leak or blockage, you can rely on us to help get it sorted.
What is electrics cover?
Electrics cover offers assistance in case electrical problems occur in your rental property.
With this insurance, you'll gain peace of mind that if your tenants do face issues such as failed wiring, a fuse box breakdown or even a broken socket or switch, you'll be able to call on our Home Experts to help.
We'll even cover accidental damage to your electrics - so if your tenants have a DIY disaster, you can rely on us to help you sort it out.
What is boiler cover?
Boiler cover is a policy that offers assistance if a boiler breakdown affects your tenant's home heating or hot water supply.
What does a HomeServe boiler service include?

Does landlord insurance cover boiler replacement?
Yes. To bring you extra peace of mind, you'll also benefit from our Boiler Replacement Promise - it does exactly what it says on the tin. In the unlikely event that we can't fix your boiler - if it's under 7 years old and you've been with us for over 6 months, we'll replace it for FREE. If your boiler is over 7 years old, we will still source and replace your boiler, but you will need to pay the installation cost.
What’s a boiler health check, and why does my boiler need one?
The boiler will be given a health check within the first year you’re covered by HomeServe. This is an initial inspection during which a Gas Safe registered engineer will check your boiler to ensure it is safe and can be insured.
The boiler must pass this health check before any boiler insurance claims you make can be progressed.
The boiler health check must be booked or completed within your first 90 days as a HomeServe customer, and it’s easy to arrange your appointment, simply give us a call.
Any previous landlord policies held with us prior to 31.03.2022 will not be subject to a new boiler health check.
Please note that in your first year with HomeServe, your boiler health check, boiler service and gas safety inspection will be carried out during the same appointment even though they are separate inspections. For more information, read our guide to the differences between a boiler health check and a boiler service.
What is a Gas Safety Certificate?
A Gas Safety Certificate is a document that proves that a landlord has met their legal obligation to have safety checks carried out on all of the gas equipment in their rented property.
