FAQs from Landlords

Why should I take out insurance?

So this one is a bit of a no brainer for us at Hunters. Your property is likely your biggest investment, so protecting it is vital to ensure it makes you money safely. Would you insure a car? Do you insure the house you live in? Yes, so make sure your investment is covered. 

Regular home cover might not give you the cover you need either; think about legal costs for eviction if necessary, chasing rent arrears and more, you need that property to be insured. 

How much does Rent Protection cost?

The cost of insurance is almost always based on the value of the property and the level of cover you choose with us. If you choose Hunters, it's best to speak to your individual local branch to find out how much it'll cost you to be protected.  It won’t be as much as you think!
