PROTECT YOUR BOOTY
Protecting your investment.
There is no doubt that letting out your investment property can be very rewarding for landlords with potential for both rental income and capital growth. Within the last decade there has been a strong growth in property prices and solid rental yield for landlords. Recent years have been slightly more difficult in terms of buying property to let but the positive side is that rental demand has remained strong.
The vast majority of landlords have experienced steady rental incomes and a well looked after property with no serious problems. Not such a shabby result given the current financial climate. In a realistic light, there is always a chance that something will not go so smoothly. Let’s face it very few investments are 100% safe. A bad tenant (every landlords worst nightmare) can end up in arrears, costly legal fees and even damage to the property that may have to be paid for by the landlord, often with little possibility of recovering the costs from the unwanted tenant.
Whilst it is impossible to guarantee than any tenancy will go well, let’s not also forget than every tenant is held accountable for their actions both in the short term & long term, however on the bright side there are insurances available to protect you as a landlord as much as possible.
Terri Scheer specialise in landlords insurance, protection and peace of mind for owners of professionally managed investment properties.
Terri Scheer products are designed to provide cover for many of the unique risks than can be associated with owning a residential rental property.
