Buildings Insurance is the most basic of cover and is designed to cover you against physical damage to your property.

Property Insurance designed for landlords.
As a landlord you aim to generate an income and obtain capital appreciation through your property investments. It therefore makes sense that you should try to protect your investments against unexpected incidents and events.
What would happen if one of your properties suffered flooding damage and became uninhabitable for a period of time? How would you fund repair works and cover loss of income? Furthermore, if a tenant fails to pay you rent on time how will your mortgage be paid? Worse still, what if a resident suffers serious bodily injury due to an unsafe staircase? As a landlord you have a legal responsibility to provide a safe living environment. Failure to do so could leave you facing a financially crippling public liability claim.
Buying landlord insurance is the best way to protect your property portfolio and provide you with peace of mind. Let us help you to choose the right amount of cover for your investment.
We have found that very few business owners fully appreciate their liabilities in the event of death or critical illness of themselves, fellow shareholders and key persons within their business. Arranging the right type and level of Business Insurance is vital to the security and stability of any business. Some Business Insurance policies will be required by law, while others will provide added protection when unforseen circumstances could otherwise leave you with potential problems and ultimately lead to huge setbacks for your business.
Partner & Shareholder protection
This type of protection policy would provide funds in the event of a death or critical illness of a business partner or director, ensuring continuity of the business and providing security and protection for all. Please call us for more detailed information.
Key Person Cover
All successful businesses have one or more key individuals on whose skill, experience, knowledge and credibility the success of the business depends, and without their active presence the business profitability may be adversely affected. Key Person cover safeguards a business against the financial effects of death and/or critical illness of a nominated key person, for example, funding the salary of a suitably qualified temporary replacement while covering the considerable costs of recruiting a new incumbent.
Business Loan Protection
Many business owners give personal guarantees or even use their residential homes as security – the loss of such people can be particularly serious for a business and can also adversely affect the owners’ dependants. Similarly, if finance has come from a director’s loan account, their estate administrator has the right to demand quick repayment of the loan on the death. Business loan protection can provide the funds to ensure that these outstanding loans can be repaid in full should the guarantor die and/or suffer a critical illness, allowing the business to continue with minimum disruption or even failure.
