When insuring a house let permanently to tenants you need to insure the building and contents (carpets, curtains, blinds etc.) as well as the tenant-related risks.  RentCoverPlatinum makes it simple, fast and inexpensive to combine comprehensive cover for the building and contents with the protection of landlords' insurance in one policy.

So whether your tenant breaks their lease, damages your property, or whether there is a fire that causes a total loss, you will know that you are protected by RentCoverPlatinum.

With RentCoverPlatinum, you're covered for damage to the building and/or contents through fire, earthquake, explosion, storm or rainwater (including flood) glass breakage, impact, theft, fusion, malicious acts by intruders or water damage from burst pipes or overflowing sinks.

You are also covered for almost every risk where a tenant does something wrong including malicious or accidental damage by the tenant, loss of rent due to broken leases, absconding tenants, denial of access and more.  You’re even covered for up to $30,000,000 legal liability.
