If you have a property in an area with a large student population letting to student tenants can be an attractive prospect. Almost half of students rent directly from private landlords, bringing about good rental yields and straightforward annual contracts.
Student tenants often get bad press from insurers as they deem them more likely to cause damage to your property. More often than not this is simply a student ‘stereotype’, however it is still a good idea to consider some specific cover as unavoidably accidents can happen.
What do we offer?
At Hamilton Fraser Total Landlord Insurance we don’t treat student tenants any different – in fact, we can accommodate for all types of tenants with no difference in cover or price.
Our award winning landlord insurance offering, Total Landlord Insurance, has been specialising in providing comprehensive cover for landlords since 1996. Building upon the extensive knowledge and experience of Hamilton Fraser, our focus is to offer easy to understand insurance for landlords without sacrificing high quality buy to let cover, or a great price.
It is through our unique understanding of the buy-to-let industry that we are able to offer not only good value buildings and contents insurance, but valuable insight into the best ways to protect your investment, giving you total peace of mind.
Our landlord insurance has been created to meet the needs of landlords by offering you two simple policies that take the headache out of buying buy to let insurance for your rental properties.
This means our cover for our Essential and Premier policies remain the same even for student tenants and your premium doesn’t suffer! All we need to know is the fact that you are renting to students in your application. Simple!
Remember that if renting to three or more unrelated tenants your property is likely to be classed as a HMO, and therefore will need to comply with the regulations surrounding this. You can read more about HMOs here.
