Rent Guarantee for Property Owners

August 2021

What is rent guarantee?

If you are a landlord, tenants failing to pay their rent is always a risk – even if you have years of experience, undertake thorough tenant references and checks, or use a reliable letting agent to act on your behalf.

Rent guarantee, available to landlords letting residential properties, covers your monthly rental income if your tenants do not pay.

What is the difference between loss of rent and rent guarantee?

Loss of rent pays out if you are unable to let your property due to damage covered by your property owners insurance.

If your tenant stops paying their rent, but remains in the property, you are not covered without rent guarantee.

Is rent guarantee for me?

If you rely on the income from renting your property, for example paying your mortgage, rent guarantee gives that extra protection.

Rent guarantee is a worthwhile consideration when letting your property to new tenants. In addition, even the most reliable tenants can experience financial difficulties which can result in arrears.
