Reluctant landlords are overlooking valuables in their attic, warns leading landlord insurance website: landlordinsurance.co.uk
THOSE forced into renting out their home because of job relocation or because they cannot sell for the price they want, are under-insuring their home contents, warns Landlordinsurance.co.uk
The leading landlord insurance website says many landlords are over-looking a treasure trove of high value goods stowed away in their attic and could be in for a nasty shock if the worst happened and they needed to claim.
Our research found a veritable treasure trove of goods that landlords are forgetting about, says Lee Grandin of landlordinsurance.co.uk
ёItems left gathering dust in the attic included expensive bikes, technology, art, antique furniture, jewelry and precious family heirlooms up to the value of 5,000.
Landlordinsurance.co.uk urges those considering renting out their property to notify their insurer as failure to do so could lead to a claim being turned down in the future.
ÑBecoming a landlord is a little like becoming a business owner, so do your research thoroughly, adds Lee Grandin.
Shop around for good quality specialist landlord insurance policies. These can be tailored to meet your personal needs and include useful cover such as ѓemergency repair or ԓrent guarantee to protect against your tenants not meeting their rental obligations.
