Buy-to-let property insurance specialists Rentguard has launched a new insurance partnership with Legal & General.
This allows Rentguard to increase its range of landlord insurance products to brokers, intermediaries and letting agents across the UK.
Buildings and contents insurance for Landlords, underwritten by L&G, covers the property against damage caused by fire, storm, flood, as well as malicious damage and vandalism.
It can also protect the landlords’ possessions and fixtures and fittings against theft, attempted theft or accidental damage.
The policy includes cover for loss of rent or alternative accommodation for tenants, trace and access costs following a leak, and damage caused to landscaped gardens.
Policies are available on a wide range of properties and can cater for a variety of roof and wall construction types.
Rentguard director Steve Jones said: “This is an example of a further step we are taking to increase our range of products for our agents.”
Ben Hosford, head of broker distribution at L&G, added: “We are very pleased to join the panel of a respected provider of buy-to-let Insurance like Rentguard and look forward to developing our partnership.”
