Which is the best let property insurance quote for you?

As a diligent landlord with a keen eye on the bottom line, you may do your research carefully about every penny you spend. So if you have a handful of insurance options in front of you, how do you decide which is the most suitable insurance quote?
Best for you
The concept of “best” is of course highly subjective. What may be best for a large landlord with a massive portfolio of properties spanning many towns and cities may not be the best for a new buy to let investor with their first flat.
Likewise, some insurers may adopt an approach that may involve holding your hand at every moment of your property ownership, whereas others may have a hands off approach and may not contact you during the life of the policy. So what you feel is the best let property insurance quote may depend on which provider’s attitude matches your own.
Another factor may be not just the nature of your own role as a landlord, but of the properties that you own. One aspect of this that you may wish to consider may be how much time out of the year your properties may be occupied.
Some landlords and other property owners may be unaware that a property being vacant for 30 days (or 45 days with some companies) or more may catapult it into the “unoccupied” territory for insurers. This may be quite normal for student properties, where students may move back in with their parents during the long summer holiday. In practice, for some insurers this may mean that a typical policy may be invalidated, because the property may be seen to be at risk.So even the best landlords insurance quote may not be so great if it does not include an element of unoccupied property insurance.
Does best always mean least expensive?
This may depend on the extent of the cover on offer. No two policies on offer may be equal, and it may be worth studying them in some detail before committing your hard earned cash to the cover. Some landlords may be more risk averse, and insist on a list of insured perils that may be covered that may be as long as your arm. You may, on the other hand, prefer a more skeletal cover that may merely cover the basics.
To sum up, the most appropriate quote may be accompanied by a schedule that may suit your individual needs.
