Darlington Landlord Insurance

Darlington Landlord Insurance is an annual property insurance contract underwritten by a select panel of leading UK insurers. The insurer for your policy will be clearly indicated on your policy schedule.

The insurance offered is a twelve month contract. The insurance may be renewed each year, but renewal will be subject to the terms and conditions that apply at the time of renewal.

Darlington Landlord Insurance offers a buildings and landlords contents policy where the maximum claim limit for buildings and landlord's contents is shown on your schedule. Buildings and landlord's contents cover is available for properties with no more than 5 bedrooms.

The maximum claim limit for buildings must be high enough to cover the cost of rebuilding your property and for landlord's contents must be high enough to replace, as new, all the landlord's contents of your property.

The different sections or extensions of cover available are buildings, landlord's contents (both of which allow you to choose whether you include cover for accidental damage and malicious damage by a tenant), Let Home Emergency Optional Cover and Landlord Legal Expenses & Rent Guarantee Optional Cover. The sections and extensions of cover you have chosen and the maximum claim limit are shown on your policy schedule.

There must be a written single tenancy agreement of at least 6 months in place directly between you and the individual tenant(s) who will occupy it.

Properties let with multiple tenancy agreements (homes of multiple occupancy), that are used as holiday homes or that are sub-let or bedsits are not acceptable.

If you choose buildings cover, Uinsure will cover the structure of your property including outbuildings, garages, garden walls, gates, fences, paths and drives against loss or damage from specific causes (for example – fire, flood, storm or vandalism).

If you choose landlord's contents cover, Uinsure will cover your household goods and furnishings within your tenanted property against loss or damage from specific causes (for example – fire, flood, storm or vandalism).
