Legal Expenses and Rent Guarantee Insurance
Is your rental income at risk?
The NRLA has partnered with Rentguard Insurance, to provide Legal Expenses & Rent Guarantee insurance. The intention of the Legal Expenses & Rent Guarantee policy is to cover rental payments if the tenants default on the rent whilst also covering the legal costs for evicting the tenants. Please see the policy wording for the full terms and conditions that apply to the policy.
Evicting your tenants and trying to regain possession of your property can often be a costly battle. When you take out Legal Expenses & Rent Guarantee insurance with Rentguard, you off-set some of the risk attached with tenants defaulting on rental payments whilst still occupying your property.
