Landlord Liability Insurance, with Limited Contents cover
Renting out your property? Your landlord insurance might cover damages to your property, but what about injury to your tenants?
You need to make sure that your tenants and anyone employed to work on your property are as safe as possible, but accidents can happen. What if a floor tile or a piece of carpet came loose and one your tenants fell and suffered an injury? You need to make sure that you’re covered if they decided to make a claim against you.
Without landlord liability insurance, you could be liable for personal injury, damage to possessions and the resulting legal costs and damages associated with the claim.

What is landlord liability insurance?
If your property causes injury to a person or their possessions are damaged, landlord liability insurance, also known as public liability insurance, protects you and your property should a claim be made against you. Whether this is by a tenant, visitor or someone you have employed to work on your property.
As a landlord it’s your responsibility to comply with current legislation, this helps to make sure that your tenants are living in a safe environment. However, we know that accidents can sometimes happen and that’s why we provide you with liability cover, which covers things like the costs and expenses of litigation, compensation and solicitors’ fees.
