jml Insurance are very pleased that HomeLet and Letsure are now under the Barbon Insurance Group umbrella
Released 17th August 2008
Summary: Landlord and Tenant insurance providers like HomeLet and Letsure are now pat of the new Barbon Insurance Group Ltd. One of their agents jml property Services is very pleased to hear that the re-branding is complete.
Following on from the announcement that Erinaceous Insurance Services Limited (EIS) has completed its rebranding exercise and that as from the 8th August will operate as Barbon Insurance Group Limited. The Landlord and Tenant insurance products HomeLet and Letsure now are part of the Barbon Group
Philip Suter who runs jml Insurance.co.uk said that jml Property Services has been working with Letsure and HomeLet since 2002.
Philip went onto say "We have introduced thousands of Landlords and Tenants over the past six years from dedicated web links from our insurance sites to these insurance providers and it is really great news they are part of this new group."
HomeLet has over the years introduced new products for the growing UK rental market and these included "Portable" tenants insurance policies - if a tenant moved from Brighton to Birmingham they could take the same insurance with them, subject of course to confirming the move with HomeLet. As the rental market grew and more buy-to-let Landlords acquired more investment property they introduced Landlords Portfolio Insurance, whereby a Landlord can get discounted insurance premiums if they own a number of properties.
In October this year the EU Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) will have to be issued to new domestic rental property tenants. Although in a rental property they will last for ten years, they can be difficult to arrange and both HomeLet and Letsure are setting up a scheme for letting agents to have these carried out. If a Landlord does not have an EPC with his/her property for a new tenant they could receive a £200 fine.
There is talk of recession in the UK and Philip Suter said "It is most important if you are renting a property or letting one out that you keep your rental insurance in place. People are starting to economise now, but to cut out the rental property insurance is false economy. "
