Most landlord insurance claims can be processed over the phone. In some more complicated cases your insurer may have to arrange for an assessor to visit your property to inspect the damage, and help you to coordinate repairs and replacements. Either way, your claim will be dealt with quickly and with the minimum fuss.
Landlord insurance premium is calculated on the basis of the risk you present to the insurer.
This risk is affected by a number of factors, such as:
- the location of your property
- the value of your property and any contents you choose to insure
- the material your property is constructed from
- the security devices you have installed to protect your property
- how your property is occupied
- the frequency of claims made by you
Your premium will also depend on the amount you wish to insure, whether you are insuring contents as well as the building, and any optional extras you add to your policy.
Before you buy landlord insurance, you have a duty of disclosure to tell the insurer anything you know and that a reasonable person in the circumstances would include in their answer to any questions the insurer asks that are relevant to their decision to insure you and on what terms. This duty applies until the insurer agrees to insure you. If you don’t comply, the insurer may cancel your contract, reduce the amount payable for a claim, or both. If your failure is fraudulent, the insurer can refuse a claim and treat the contract as if it never existed.
