    Short Term Rental - Landlord Insurance

    Can anybody recommend a provider of Landlord Insurance that will cover a 3 month AST? Most of the normal providers only cover rentals where the AST is for a minimum 6 month term. Thanks

    You'd be silly to only cover for 3 months when you cannot even issue a section 21 notice until after 4 months.

      Write a 6 month AST but explain - verbally only - you'll accept early surrender at no charge.

      In Scotland tenancies now can be ended by tenants on 28 day notice.

      Is it yourself that wants 3 months?

        It's a renovated property that I have on the market to sell. In the meantime a local builder has offered to pay double rent for a three month period to accommodate a couple who are having to move out of their new build house whilst they rectify a fault with the roof over the summer

          Who will be named as tenant? If builder it can't be (legally) an AST even if paperwork says it is.

          And if building work runs over planned end date (such a rare thing......) what then?

            Hi

            I would be interested in your view on the following

            I received a renewal Legal & Rent Guarantee Insurance documents from Rentguard (which initiallyy I purchased through Openrent)

            There is the following condition in their 'statement of fact':

            No 7.1 will not likely stand up in court. You cannot have open ended guarantor deeds that apply in this way robustly.

            The fact that you have said that it will apply also to unknown rental increases, for an unknown term, and covers unknown costs means that it is likely invalid

            This is not about zero-risk option. The part which I do not like the most is that I become tenant-dependant for buying insurance.

            HOW was the guarantee documented please? Enacted as a deed? Guarantor credit checked, given AST & guarantee and advised to take legal advice prior to signing, please?...

            I have a guarantor on this Tenancy Agreement.
            This is 12-month fixed and then becoming rolling (monthly) contactual agreement.
            The guarantor is a party to the agreement (signed)
            The agreement has the following clauses:
            7.1 In consideration of the Landlord agreeing...

            I think you're looking for a zero-risk option, but property letting is an investment business with risk baked in.
            I don't blame you! But I think you're going to struggle.

            Like all of us, the rent guarantee insurance sellers didn't see the pandemic coming, and it wasn't covered in...

            If a guarantor agreement is valid at all (which is a BIG if) it is not going to be valid past the initial fixed term (no matter what it says) - so as much use as non-stick Sellotape or Jeremy Corbyn....

            I doubt anyone in this town has ten years rent. I’m obviously being Uber selective on tenants , but I also wondered about guarantors as well. Does a guarantor have the absolute obligation to cover rent defaults or can they avoid paying as well?...

            Can anyone recommend a broker / insurance provider? I have a 1st floor property with 4 flats.

            I'm looking for recommendations on who provided a fair quote but also any recommendations on companies who actually paid out a claim promptly / fairly.

            Thank You...
