    Your opinions please

    Hi all

    Just after your opinions regarding landlord insurance for some research I'm conducting. Don't need especially long answers just trying to get a cross section of opinions so please share as much or as little as you would like.

    Any comments useful. For example, how could insurers improve their service? What are the main sticking points or things that you feel they get wrong? What would make you change your insurance provider? Would you rather have a more expensive policy that covers you better, or a cheaper one without as much comprehensive cover?

    I realise the subject is a contentious issue/bain of our lives sometimes but would be delighted to hear what fellow landlords think.

    Thanks

The management company of the block is also the Freeholder and the leaseholder of the offending flat above. A claim on the block building insurance,...

      Thank you all for your comments. Much appreciated. I am not having much success with the Local Council Private Housing dept. Apparently they only deal with Tenants in privately rented homes and not owner/ occupiers! I could pursue the local Magistrates Court...... but I have just been made aware of...

      If you did not receive a summary of the insured cover within 30 days, it becomes a criminal offence and you can report the criminal offence to the Housing Officer at your Local Council for prosecution or file a complaint yourself at your local Magistrates Court ( speak to the Court Manager who...

      Thank you JKO - Service charge demands are in order; the paperwork is correct. I have written to the management company yesterday and advised them that since the insurance will not pay for moving costs and this expense has not been covered in the quote, I will remain in residence and the builder, during...

      Yeah, sounds fair enough to me.

      BTW, how are they demanding service charge, ground rent & insurance monies? Check everything comes with correct paperwork, as this might give you some leverage, if they don't pay up for your losses.

      I sent a written request by " registered post " for a copy of summary insurance policy just after the last flood. No reply from them! I have damage to my contents but unfortunately no contents insurance. I intend to pursue the matter via the courts and prove negligence. I am trying to get...

      Send a written request by "registered post" to request a "summary of insured cover for your building" and you should get the reply within 21 days or 30 days or failing this it becomes a criminal offence.

      Don't you even know the name of the insurer? If you know that, I'd have thought they could inform you of the cover.

      Failing that, I'd book into a travel lodge, for the minimum time and then sue freeholder for the cost.

      Have you any damaged contents? Have you contents insur...
