    Water escape insurance claim -insurance renwal quotes post claim

    Hi everyone!
    We had to make a claim on the building insurance for water escape on a policy which has now increased the next years policy...it now seems harder to get a broker to provide quotes. Some are just saying no which seems odd or are we more of a risk as we are now subletting more as well? Any good brokers out there to try. We have been with Aviva...All help appreciated. Thank you.

    This is a common problem I find. Why did you have to claim on the insurance? Often it is in the long term better to pay for a repair and repair damage yourself than claim.

        For all except the biggest of claims, insurers operate time machines. They pay your claim out of your future premiums.

          So say the claim was for over 50K and god forbid there was another claim where I just found out that the subletting tenants dont have contents insurance because I asked them..who pays then?

            The situation is different if the property is empty awaiting a tenant or the landlord to be is currently living there.
            Landlord's insurance wont be valid if the landlord is the occupant.

            Only if you plan to move back in during the voids (which would be very unusual).

            Hi. I am getting my property ready to rent out (my own place which I have been living in). My house insurance is due for renewal about the same time. Do I just buy normal house insurance for.. Maybe a month then cancel it and buy landlord insurance? Or see if they can upgrade it to landlord insurance?...

            I told my landlord insurance I was still waiting for people to rent it out. They said that was fine and started the insurance.

            So some follow up questions for the senior members. What do you do during void periods? Cancel the landlord insurance and get residential insurance and then start...

            Any recommendations for companies for landlord insurance? While I'm here. And I'll see about getting normal house insurance with them then upgrading it when the time comes. Thanks...

            I wouldn't, in the unfortuante case you need to make a claim while in the transition period, it may invalid the insurance if they decide to check.

            I thought about just going straight for the landlord insurance but it was asking who it was rented to.. What their situation was etc. And I don't know that yet...

            while the property is still on a residential basis you should obtain normal house insurance, then once you rent it out you should then get a landlord insurance. It would be better to see if the normal house insurance provider also provides landlords insurance as then the process would be much easier...

            Personally I'd just go straight in with landlord's, you'd probably find that the admin charges etc to upgrade you would be more than the premium anyway. Also bear in mind many insurance providers won't let you simply cancel after a month and will want the full term's value as a cancellation fee.

            Interesting to see posts saying RGI not worthwhile.
            I'm renting out my flat in London so the market is mostly people here to work for a while. Having a UK homeowner guarantor would help but this is the second set who've only been in the country a couple of years and no strong ties other than...
