What would you do if your tenant stops paying rent?

Even honest and reliable tenants can fall into financial difficulty … loss of job, breakdown in relationships and other changes in circumstances can cause a tenant to default on their rent.

Ministry of Justice figures state that it takes on average 298 days (42.6 weeks) to gain possession of a property when evicting a tenant. With the average UK rent at £965 a month and the standard legal fees to evict a tenant including court fees around £1,156, the lost rent and legal expenses associated with an eviction can cost as much as £10,630!*

What can Rent Protection & Legal Expenses service offer you?

  • Cover for the total monthly rent, no matter how many tenants are on the tenancy agreement.
  • Missed rental payments until vacant possession of the property for an unlimited time
  • Up to two months’ rental payments at 50% following vacant possession (where applicable)
  • Legal expenses up to £100,000 to cover eviction costs if the tenant is in breach of their tenancy agreement.
  • Covers breaches of the tenancy agreement by the tenant, including non-payment of rent and expired section 21 notices.
  • Cover should a tenant defend the action taken, meaning we’ll continue to pay the claim until the challenge has been resolved.
  • 12 months of cover
  •  Rent Protection and Legal Expenses covers the whole property meaning the policy continues even when/if the tenants change.
  • No policy excess - your rental payments are covered straightaway.
