Do I need Rent Guarantee Insurance?
“When my tenants stopped paying their rent, I tried everything to get them to pay. Eventually I had to instruct a solicitor to evict them. I lost 5 months’ rent totalling £2,750 and paid over £3,000 in legal fees. Meanwhile, I had to continue to pay the mortgage. No one had told me about rent guarantee insurance, not even my mortgage provider…I now have rent guarantee insurance and would strongly recommend it!”
