Landlords' Emergency Cover

InsuraHome's Landlords' Emergency Cover will arrange and pay up to £1,000 for a contractor to: prevent damage or further damage to your home, make your home secure or relieve unreasonable discomfort, risk to health or difficulty

So long as your Emergency falls under the policies insured events, the Landlords' Emergency cover will either sort a temporary repair (or permanent one if this is no more expensive); or take other action such as isolating the leaking component or gaining access to your home - whatever is the best way of providing help!

For example, if your roof happens to be damaged during a storm then your Landlords' Emergency cover may pay for a contractor to make temporary repairs to your roof to prevent any further water damage.

Equally, if one of your drainage pipes is flooding your home, Landlords' Emergency Cover would cover the cost up to the policy limit of a plumber to repair the leak until a more permanent solution can be put in place.

Be sure to check the Policy Wording for full details on cover limits and exclusions.
