Our Rent and Legal Protection service means that, should the unexpected happen, you’ll always get the income you expect from your tenants, and your service will help if you need legal representation to recover it.
Terms and conditions apply.
Rent and Legal Protection service policies from Stirling Ackroyd come with nil excess as standard, so landlords will benefit from 100% of rent owed, should they need to make a claim.
We’ll cover the costs and expenses of legal proceedings, including the cost of appeals, and also provide legal representation from one of our trusted partners. We’ll appoint a legal representative for the duration of the proceedings and support throughout the process.
We’ll pay rent arrears whilst a tenant or ex-tenant still occupies the property for up to 15 months. After vacant possession has been obtained, we’ll continue to pay 75% of the rent until the property is re-let for a maximum of two months. We’ll also cover the costs and expenses of recovering rent from a tenant or ex-tenant, if the rent has been overdue for at least one month.
Should a property sustain physical damage of £1,000 or more during the tenancy caused by the tenant, we’ll cover the costs and expenses for pursuit of a civil dispute against the tenant, to rectify the damage.
If there are squatters or ex-tenants in the property without the landlord’s consent, our service will assist with the costs of eviction.
The landlord can claim for legal expense cover to evict a tenant, should the tenant breach any part of their tenancy agreement that requires the pursuit of a civil dispute.
Our service will cover against costs and expenses relating to the dispute of a contract, entered into for the buying or hiring of any goods and services relating to the landlord’s property, providing the amount in dispute is over £100 and the agreement was entered into during the period of service.
We offer a 90-day claim window, providing plenty of time to organise a claim from the date of the first rental payment missed by a tenant. Our claims process is really simple and all communications to the landlord are sent automatically, when a claim is submitted.
Once in place the service will automatically renew every 12 months so there is no gap in your protection, providing you with a consistent service and peace of mind.As with any cover, limitations and exclusions apply.
