  • Insurance against non payment

    Hi to everybody here.

    This has probably been asked before but not able to find the answer, does anybody have any advice on self-management in particular insurance to cover non payment of rent?

    Regards
    Jax

      I suggest MARAS, which offers this sort of thing.

        Thanks for the reply, they did catch my eye but it was more on the advice side of things I was after.

        Jeffrey thanks for the suggestion I shall look into it. We are just starting out by letting a second home out so very new to all this and digging into all the do's, donts and must do's.

          FCC Paragon are also very good - we have used them for a number of years and their claim service is prompt too. Normal one month excess applies though i know others who dont charge an excess but their premiums are much higher.

            As a landlord what approach do you take to replacing white goods in your rental properties?
            Do you buy cheapest brands and then dispose of them when they go wrong as it is pricey to repair?
            Or do you go for a better brand and hope for longevity?

            Horses for courses.

            I've never been able to get a fridge repaired, they only have one working system and when it breaks it's time for a new fridge, so I buy the cheapest one that fits with a name I've heard of.

            Washing machines can be repaired, so I pay more for one that has...

          • Claiming for protected deposit
            mandm
            This is an interesting one, got me into a spin.
            Tenants signed AST but decided to leave after 6 months and 3 days (problem with moving) using the break clause in the AST. I protected the deposit using DPS (Insured) and returned the deposit minus deductions when the moved out.
            I served the...

            That would be pointless.

            The tenant would have to sue to get their own money back.
            Apart from the waste of the court and tenant's time, there would be little or no compensation because the tenant would suffer no loss to compensate them for (loss of interest?).
            The only people...

            Your right that the penalty claim is the law and it's your right to claim it.

            Unfortunately however you won't receive much sympathy on here,as most of us recognise that most of the breaches have been made by inexperienced landlords and not through any intention to rip you off.

            The legislation has been in place for a decade and has been revisited at least twice (and tweaked each time).
            The deposit schemes have fairly clear guides about what needs to be done and how and when to do it.

            Given the tenant(s) the Prescribed Information is part of the process of...

            It discourages landlords from taking a deposit at all, and instead making it up with higher rent. This discriminates against tenants staying for a long time.

            I think that is what is happening to o/p.



            It's all a lot of nonsense. Tenant could always sue if landlord...

            I buy the cheapest machine I can source. It is usually a Hotpoint or Indesit. And they all come out of the same factory. Some of them last for years. I've just replaced a Hotpoint WD after 11 years with a new Indesit one. I try and avoid the ones with the digital display and too many fancy options as...

            What’s evident from responses in this thread that equal emphasis was given to deposit protected within time frame and T were informed in a prescribed manner, some going as far as getting the T to sign the acknowledgement!
            I am really flabbergasted to read some of these emphasis, surely the point...
