jml Insurance can now introduce Landlords to Emergency Assistance Insurance


Released  3rd March 2008  

Summary: The UK has numerous buy to let properties let, what happens if there is an emergency in the middle of night? HomeLet have an emergency assistance policy available now

 With the growth of Buy to Let in the UK there is a good proportion of housing stock now occupied as rental property.

With this comes the need for Landlords to have access to an emergency service when their tenant suddenly has a problem at 3 am in the morning.

HomeLet insurance products have been introduced to numerous Landlords and Tenants over the past six years. They are now offering Emergency Assistance Insurance. The idea behind the scheme is that the tenant contacts the HomeLet emergency number and not the Landlord.

They will cover the costs of a contractor up to maximum figure per incident for such essentials as plumbing, lost keys, cooking systems, roofing, electricity supply, door and window security. HomeLet reckon that the average similar problem takes around 48 hours to sort out, whereas their solution for arranging an approved contractor to deal with the issue is within 4 hours of it being reported.

Philip Suter of jml Insurance said "This is a great product and as the buy to let business has grown, so has the number of landlords - many know have a portfolio pf rental properties and HomeLet has brought out a specialist product for owners of more than two rental properties".

HomeLet are one of the UK's major rental property insurance companies, they are part of Erinaceous Insurance Services Limited, a member of the Erinaceous Group
