Frequently asked questions

  • 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 do I need to know about the current offer?

    • Landlord’s Plumbing and Drainage Plus is currently available at 50p a month (£6 a year) for the first year only.

      This offer ends on 24th November 2021 and is for landlords only.

      Once this offer expires, the product will revert to its standard price, £1 a month for the first year. Terms and conditions and exclusions apply.

  • 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?

    • HomeServe boiler service includes:

      • A full inspection of the entire chimney structure, and where necessary, cleaning of the burner, combustion chamber, any injectors and heat exchanger, inspection of ignition devices
      • Checking the integrity of all seals and gaskets

      • A final combustion analysis and measurement against tolerances set by the manufacturer's instructions
      • A test of all disturbed gas connections, carry out functional testing of heating and hot water
      • A visual inspection of any other encountered gas appliances, written notification of any gas safety defect which may affect the safe operation of your appliances
      • An assessment of your current heating controls and best practice advice regarding energy efficiency

  • 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 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.

  • How do I make a claim?

    • Making a claim is easy. You can either claim online via our landlord portal or if you've got a Gas Safety Certificate and/or boiler service included in your cover, give us a call on 0330 0247 999*.
