IF you want to know how to get low cost landlord insurance then this guide will tell you how. It applies to the UK only though, so if you are after holiday home insurance abroad then you will need to go to The Property Insurer and click on the link there.

First thing to do is to decide whether you need buildings only or buildings and contents cover for the property you are renting out.  Typically and for tax reasons, most properties are let unfurnished, however, there are some that are let with furniture throughout. You may even want to include the white goods, carpets and curtains in a policy which means you will want contents as well.

Once that is sorted, you need to know the rebuild value of the property. This is different from the price of your property if you were to buy, sell or rent it. You can search online for a generic calculator that will then give you an idea. Getting a surveyor round is the best way, or looking at what your mortgage company valued the property at when you bought it is another good way of doing it.

Just don’t accept a higher rebuild value than you actually need. That is like paying for a hotel room on the moon – you are never going to use it so what is the point. And the extra cover does cost, so go elsewhere and you will get it cheaper.

It’s the same story with contents, make sure you know how much cover you need and stick to it. There is absolutely no point having £50,000 of cover if you only have £10,000 of contents. Keeping the contents value realistic will also help keep the cost of the let property insurance down for landlords, which is exactly what they need to make profit.

Now you know what you want, go to a search engine and put in landlord insurance and see what companies surface on the first two pages. You can virtually take your pick and go get a quote, they will be much of a muchness. The only thing to remember is that the price comparison sites do not offer price comparison for landlords insurance.

Once you have a quote, then go to The Property Insurer for a second comparative quote. Complete the form and if necessary, speak with the broker but get the second price. Compare the two and pick the one that suits your needs the best given cover and price. Generally, you’ll pick the lowest price for landlord insurance because the cover should be the same.
