What is covered under my policy?
As UKinsuranceNET works with several insurers that underwrite its landlord insurance policies, the cover benefits will vary depending on which insurer is willing to offer the landlord cover.
For a full list of policy features, you’ll need to contact UKinsuranceNET directly or check your policy details carefully to ensure you have the right cover for your needs.
UKinsuranceNET offers some optional extras to enhance protection, including the following:
- Legal expenses cover
- Rent guarantee insurance
What is my excess?
Your insurance excess is the amount of money you will need to pay towards a claim. Your insurer won’t pay out for a claim that costs less than this amount. A compulsory excess amount might vary depending on the age of your van and your driving experience.
A voluntary excess is on top of your normal excess and is normally set by you when taking out a policy. You’ll have the option of adding or increasing a voluntary excess – which should lower your premium.
You’ll find details about any compulsory or voluntary excesses in your policy document.
How much is this going to cost me?
There are a number of factors that can affect the cost of your UKinsuranceNET landlord insurance premium, including the following:
- Your sum insured. The greater the amount you wish to insure your property or contents for, the more you can expect to pay for cover.
- Your property. The age of your property and the materials from which it is constructed can influence its ability to withstand damage.
- Where your property is located. Certain risks, for example, storm and theft, are more prevalent in certain areas, and insurers will take this into consideration when calculating your premiums.
- Security. Security measures such as an alarm system and deadbolts can act as a deterrent to thieves and therefore reduce the cost of your cover.
What is the claims process for UKinsuranceNET?
You can contact UKinsuranceNET on its general contact number 01325 346 328 to share initial details about a claim. UKinsuranceNET will then pass these details to your insurer. In an emergency, you will need to refer to your policy document’s claims process and follow instructions there.
Depending on the nature of your claim, you will need to provide the following information:
- Your policy details and personal contact details
- The date of the incident
- Details such as the cause of the incident
- The value of any lost or damaged items being claimed for
- Names and address of any other people involved or responsible for the incident, including details of injuries
It’s vital that you let your insurer know about an incident as soon as possible. Failure to do this could result in a rejected claim later on.
