Why is this cover important?
There are many benefits with taking out a Landlord’s policy with Citycover as it’s an investment which you would like to protect. Every landlord’s property is different, therefore, we tailor the insurance cover to suit your specific requirements. An Investment property, for many, is like a nest egg for their future retirement.
You leave the responsibility of selecting and reviewing the type of tenants to your appointed Real Estate Agent. Now you can leave the responsibility of protecting your investment with a Professional Insurance Adviser.
At Citycover we understand this and we pride ourselves in providing the right advice to tailor your insurance requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions for Landlords Insurance.
I found a really cheap quote online, why is it so cheap?
Insurance is like any other product, you pay for what you get. There are many different insurers offering policies in different shapes and forms.
Service is extremely important.
This is the difference between a claim being paid out over night and a claim being paid out painstakingly over a year. Cheap premiums are on offer because costs are being cut elsewhere.
Coverage is also extremely important.
This is the difference between your claim being paid out or not paid out at all. Quite often, this results in financial burden in the long run.
What happens if my rental property is damaged by storm and becomes untenantable?
The Landlords policy would cover the resultant damage as well as the loss of rent until such time as the building is repaired.
Can I pay my premiums by the month?
Yes. All insurance offered by Citycover can be paid by the month through premium funders. If you chose to use the premium funder’s service, your monthly instalments will be tax deductible.
What happens if a tenant is evicted due to unpaid rent or leaves unexpected with rent owing?
Ss long as you have the Rental Default option, the policy will provide cover. Period of time and amount paid varies with each insurer.
