What’s the number 1 way to protect yourself against tenant arrears? Recent research undertaken on behalf of the UK government has indicated that landlords who choose to manage their property themselves are 272.5% more likely to be two months in rent arrears. The answer therefore would seem (at least in part) to be ‘professional property management’.
But even under the best management; rent arrears can still occur. Especially in the current climate (and often through no fault of the tenant). So how best to truly protect yourself?
Rent guarantee insurance?
A simple, stress-free alternative to rent guarantee insurance
If you are concerned about having tenants in arrears; you might be relieved to find out that the Choices landlord rent guarantee offers you a far simpler solution. This exclusive service guarantees to pay your rent for up to a year if your tenant doesn’t and covers any issues relating to the pandemic. Not only this; but it covers up to £1000+vat of legal costs (and ARO goes to court on behalf of the landlord with assistance from a solicitor so costs rarely go above this); and all without the need to take out insurance!
