Terms and conditions apply

Sometimes your tenant’s security deposit isn’t enough to cover significant damage or rent arrears. A comprehensive and rigorous coverage could mean the difference between regaining your property of defaulting on your buy to let mortgage.

With this Rent Protection and Legal Expenses service, you will get the income you’re owed and any costs you may have in recovering it, so you are not out of pocket!

For added ease, there is a unique and automated claims process, to reduce the administration and to return the property to you as quickly as possible. They will always keep you informed so you know when your property’s protected, and how the claims process works.

The criteria for this service are closely linked to tenant referencing criteria. We work hard to offer you the best lettings experience, including tenant referencing, so this Rent Protection service is aligned with the information we have on your tenants – simplifying the application for you.
