Landlord's Gas Central Heating Cover meets the needs of landlords requiring assistance in the event of a problem with the gas central heating at their tenanted property.
This policy is sold, arranged and administered by HomeServe and underwritten by Aviva Insurance Limited.
Prices include all fees and Insurance Premium Tax (IPT).
Are you covered elsewhere?
Landlords should check if their existing home insurance or other policies provide cover, expert assistance and repairs in the event of the domestic emergencies and incidents covered by this policy so you are not paying for cover you do not need.
Are you eligible to apply?
This policy is for landlords only. Retail, commercial and other premises used for business are not eligible, and council and housing association tenants will not need this service. Mobile homes, bedsits, sub-divided homes and sub-let properties are not covered.
The boiler at your property must have a power output of less than 60 KW/hr and be fired by natural gas (and not LPG, electric or oil).
How long after purchasing do I need to wait before I can make a claim?
This policy has an initial 14 day exclusion period within which you'll not be able to make a claim. Please see the product documents for more details.
What is my excess and how do I pay?
You will have to pay the first £50 of any claim. This payment must be made before an engineer is deployed. It is the landlord's responsibility to pay the excess, however, we will accept payment from the tenant in order to allow the claim to proceed.
We can only accept payment using the following cards: MasterCard, Maestro, Visa or Visa Delta. A separate excess payment is required for each claim you make. Please see the policy Terms and Conditions for further details.
What happens after the first year?
The price will increase at renewal. Currently customers in their second year are paying £19.60 a month, £235.20 for the year for this policy, provided they have made no claims. Your cover will automatically renew unless you tell HomeServe otherwise.
What happens if you change your mind?
You can cancel at any time. If you have made a claim no refund will be due. If you have not claimed you would receive a full refund within the first 28 days. After that it will depend when you cancel.
Please see Terms & Conditions for full cancellation information.
