As a landlord, you are basically using your rental property for generating extra income, and you need to safeguard it. Successful property investment is essentially all about transferring or offsetting your risks to another party. In order to this, you will need insurance policies that are specifically designed for rental properties. A common mistake many landlords make is assuming that standard domestic insurance covers are sufficient. However, the truth is, many risks associated with rental properties are simply not covered. A landlord’s insurance policy on the other hand will provide comprehensive cover for your rental property right from buildings and contents coverage to property owner’s liability coverage. However, when purchasing a landlord’s insurance policy, you should make sure that all aspects of your rental property are appropriately covered. Here in this article we will take a look at what all should be included in your landlord’s insurance policy.
Rental Property Landlord’s Insurance: What to Look For?
Here is what a typical landlord’s insurance policy for your rental property should include -
Building Insurance - This is certainly the most important cover - you never know what might go wrong with the rental property and repair charges can be sky high. Under this coverage, the building is insured against risks like fire and floods for the repair or rebuilding costs. Additionally, in some cases subsidence or terrorism can also be purchased from most insurers as an optional extra.
Content Insurance - This is particularly important if you are letting your rental property furnished or semi furnished. It will provide coverage for your furniture, fixtures and fittings.
Accidental Damage Cover - This will provide coverage for costs of any repair or replacement of items due to accidental damages caused by the tenant.
Coverage Between Tenants - Most landlords will face periods when their rental property is unoccupied after a tenant has vacated the property and before a new one moves in. This can be quite a risky time as your property is empty and an easy target for vandals and squatters. Landlord’s insurance for unoccupied rental properties can provide appropriate coverage in such cases.
Landlord’s Liability Coverage - If a tenant or any other person injures themselves because of something dangerous on your property, they could make claims of damage against you. Landlord’s liability coverage will pay for such damages along with the legal costs.
Loss of Rent - This will provide coverage for the loss of rent or the costs of alternative accommodation should the rental property become uninhabitable such as in case of fire or flooding, while repairs are being carried out.
Make sure you look for these covers when purchasing a landlord’s insurance policy.

As a landlord the first thing you need to do when letting your rental property is getting a tenancy agreement. Your tenancy agreement will clearly define the responsibilities and legal obligations of the tenant and the landlord (you), term of tenancy, rent amount and various others details about the tenancy through different clauses. All these clauses are important and need to be carefully checked before you get the tenancy agreement drafted. One of the most important clauses that you, as a landlord, need to give careful thought to, are clauses related to ending the tenancy. Here in this article we are going to take a look at what things a landlord should know about ending clauses in a rental property tenancy agreement.
Rental Property: Ending Clauses in Tenancy Agreement
When it comes to ending clauses in rental property tenancy agreements, you as a landlord need to keep in mind that, statutory provisions for terminating a tenancy will override any other private agreement between you and your tenant. For instance any clause, which says that the tenant should provide a notice (one month, two months etc.) when he wants to vacate the rental property at the fixed term’s end, will be void, as tenants have the right to leave the property, by law, once the fixed term has ended without providing any notice.
In the event that the tenant continues to reside in the rental property, after the end of the fixed term, the tenancy will become a periodic tenancy. Any clause in the tenancy agreement that requires your tenant to provide a notice period that is longer than what is required by general law (such as 1 month for monthly tenancies, 28 days for weekly tenancies etc.) will also be rendered void.
Another clause that you need to give careful thought to is the forfeiture clause. The forfeiture clause deals with re-entry into the rental property, in the event that the tenant defaults on rent payments for 14, 12 or more days. In the past, this clause allowed landlords to physically re-enter the rental property and turn out the tenants, while also confiscating their stuff to pay for the unpaid rent amount. However, things have changed - re-entry can now be done only by getting a court order for possession. Also, forfeiture is now forbidden by the Housing Act 1988. However, the forfeiture clause has still been left in as it is still important in some cases. This clause can allow landlords to bring a claim as per the ‘grounds’ in the Housing Act 1988 during the period of the fixed term. These days all forfeiture clauses refer to the Housing Act grounds for possession. However, the Office of Fair Trading has made it clear that the forfeiture clause should not be misleading. The OFT also says that the clause must clearly state that tenants can be evicted only after the landlord obtains an order for possession from the court and that tenants retain their rights as per the Protection from Eviction Act 1977.

A recently formed local charity Community Music in Action (CMIA), is calling on fellow musicians in the area to get involved in uniting the community through the gift of music. Members of Beckenham-based community choir FUNdamentally GOSPEL set up the charity when they realised that the benefits they had gained from making music together could be passed back to their local community.
The aim of CMIA is to fund and run at least three music projects a year in Bromley and neighbouring boroughs, targeting vulnerable and disadvantaged groups of people. The projects are led by experienced musicians and professional workshop leaders along with volunteers from the choir and are tailored to each partner’s needs and requirements.
This year’s first project ran during the summer term at Riverside School’s St Mary’s Cray site. Specifically run for sixth-formers with severe or profound learning difficulties, they worked alongside professional rapper Myles Dhillon, combining lyric-writing and digital music production to record tracks the students have written themselves. Keen to leave a lasting legacy, Community Music In Action also arranged for Myles to lead a session with the Riverside School staff to pass on his skills in lyric writing so they can continue to run lessons including this kind of activity in the future. Talking about the project and the charity Myles said “The young people gave me all their ideas and we tailored and moulded them to fit with the music. This kind of music allows young people to express themselves verbally in a way in which they would not normally on a day to day basis. It also encourages them to think creatively in the way they speak or craft their words. It is so cool that CMIA have got together to raise funds for these kinds or projects. It’s great that they actually do something creative and fun in order to raise money. I hope that some of the young people who are involved in the project will be inspired to take part with the choir in the future, to show the benefit and impact of the money being raised within the local community."
Keen to benefit a broad range of members of the local community, CMIA’s 2nd project was for Bromley Alzheimer’s Society. The charity used funds donated by the Concertina Trust to employ Kim Perkins, professional Community Musician & Workshop leader to lead a series of music therapy afternoons at White Gables Day Care Centre. Kim worked with the patients on popular and world songs, with the choir joining them for their last session so both groups could perform for each other. Day Care Centre Manager, Anne Diamond said, ”the purpose of this fabulous project was to include people with dementia in community music and it has certainly been met enthusiastically by our clients. Music and singing provide great stimulation and are a powerful memory tool, all participants really enjoyed their afternoons with Kim”.
The charity are currently working to set up their third project before the end of the year, so far the charity has been funded entirely by the activities of FUNdamentally GOSPEL, but the vision of Musical Director and Chairperson Fiona Bolton is one that sees lots of different kinds of local musical groups from the local area uniting towards a common goal. “It’s been wonderful to see the choir grow, but even more exciting is to see people from all walks of life uniting through song and pouring their collective energy into a greater purpose. I would love to see Community Music In Action become an initiative that had orchestras, wind bands, choral societies and steel pan ensembles, coming together to work towards the common aim of sharing the joy of music with those less fortunate than ourselves.”
Musical groups from the local area are urged to get in touch to find out more about how they can get involved with CMIA, whether it be through fundraising or volunteering on a project. CMIA would also love to hear from organisations who feel they may benefit from the work they do and who might like CMIA to run a music project for them.
FUNdamentally GOSPEL’s next fundraiser is their Christmas Concert on Saturday 8th December, 7.30pm, at City Gate Church Hall, 22 Rectory Road, Beckenham, BR3 1AA. Entry is by a suggested minimum donation £5 — a small price to pay for a great night of entertainment and the knowledge that they will be contributing to a great local cause.
