Being a landlord never comes without its issues and that’s why you want to minimise the hassle should things go wrong in one of your rented properties. The boiler is one of the most expensive pieces of equipment in any property you are renting out, and when it breaks down, your tenants quite rightly have the right to expect it will be sorted for them in quick time.
Without a properly functioning boiler your tenants will have no heat or hot water, so time is of the essence. However, it’s quite likely you could be struggling to find the time to sort out an issue like this, especially if you have multiple properties, and this is where landlord boiler cover comes in.
Prominence Support provides comprehensive boiler cover for landlords, safeguarding you against the costs of a breakdown of the boiler. With our landlord boiler cover we’ll even deal directly with your tenants, if that is easier for you, minimising your involvement in any boiler or central heating issues.
What is landlord boiler insurance?
Landlord boiler cover is an insurance for the boiler and central heating system in a specific property that you rent out. It provides you with protection against the cost of repair or even a replacement should your boiler or central heating system develop a problem.
While a relatively new boiler may still be under an initial manufacturer’s warranty, it is almost inevitable that your boiler breaks down outside of the warranty period, meaning you could be left with a large repair bill or worse. Landlord boiler insurance ensures that you will have cover, meaning that in the event of your boiler developing issues, your tenants won’t have to go without central heating or hot water for an extended period of time.
With a landlord boiler insurance policy, we’ll get out and repair the boiler without cost you. And the best thing is you won’t even need to get involved as we’re more than happy to deal directly with your tenants.
