Protecting your asset
It pays to have the right level of landlord insurance.
When you have landlord insurance, you can relax in the knowledge that if something unexpected happens to your investment property, you’re covered.
This specific type of insurance protects against a number of risks that are unique to rental properties and are not normally included in home and contents insurance or a strata title policy. Landlord insurance shields owners from tenant-related issues that may cause financial damages. Even if you feel you have a good and trustworthy tenant, this relationship may sour if a tenant’s circumstances change. This can result in rent owing or the property not being looked after to the same standard it was before.
Next Level strongly encourages all landlords to safeguard themselves by taking out landlord insurance. It will protect from loss of rental income in a range of scenarios, including a tenant defaulting on rental payments, a tenant vacating without providing the required amount of notice or if the property is untenantable due to damage.
