Keeping Rental Income In Your Own Hands

Landlord's Rent Guarantee Insurance, often referred to as rent protection insurance is a form of cover that acts as a safeguard should your tenants be unable to pay their rent. It helps to insure that you will still receive your rental income should the unexpected occur. Whilst it is an optional cover and now legal requirement it is designed to provide some added protection and peace of mind.

Rent Guarantee Insurance covers missed rental payments and includes cover for legal expenses. If you’re a landlord who depends on the monthly rental income to pay the mortgage on your buy-to-let property, or rely on these payments for other reasons, this type of insurance can be very useful. We are able to offer this for new lets or upon renewing your current tenancy through our referencing company FCC Paragon. The benefits of this insurance include-:

  • Covers loss of rent up to £3,000 per calendar month should a tenant fall into arrears.
  • Covers loss of rent for up to 5 months on a 6 or 12 month warranty (the first months rental should be paid in advance so will not be covered).
  • Transferable benefit – If your tenants vacate and you have unused months remaining on the warranty, you can transfer the benefit to the new tenancy agreement, subject to terms & conditions.
  • Covers the first month's unpaid rent meaning there is no exclusion period.
  • Covers legal expenses authorised / incurred by FCC Paragon, including court costs to obtain vacant possession following non payment of rent (total combined benefit up to a maximum of £25,000).
  • Available for 6 or 12 months (must run in line with the length of the tenancy agreement) and can easily be renewed.

Real Life Success Stories - Tattersall Gardens, Leigh-on-Sea

This week’s blog follows the story of a detached bungalow in Tattersall Gardens, Leigh-on-Sea which was owned by a lovely lady who had lived there for almost 50 years. She was relocating out of the area to be nearer to her daughter and was on the market already with three local estate agents and had been for several months.

We first met the owner in the middle of July and suggested some changes to the way her home was presented and agreed upon a marketing plan that would reach far more potential buyers than may have previously been the case.

We began marketing the property on 23rd July and within the first 24 hours had arranged for three potential buyers to view. More interest followed and a sale was agreed just one week later on 30th July, needless to say the owner and her family were delighted! Given the urgency of the family wanting their mum nearer them, we set the sale up on the understanding that a very quick transaction was needed and we were able to progress the sale through to an exchange of contracts just 28 days later.

Mum is now living nearer to her family and the new owners are busy making various changes and improvements to the bungalow, both are very happy with their new homes.
