Landlord Legal and Rent Protection


From Cotters Letting Agents, Northampton.

  At Cotters Lettings Agents, we understand the difficulties that landlords can face when renting their properties. What happens if my tenant stops paying their rent? As a landlord you may still have to pay a mortgage on your property. What if the tenant causes damage to your property that is in excess of the rental deposit? You will need to pay for any damage to be rectified before you can re-lease your property. What happens if you have to evict a tenant?  There will be additional legal costs that you will incur.

To help our Landlords we can offer Legal and Rent Protection.

A very important point to note, currently live tenancies cannot claim on the rent guarantee for anything relating to the first 60 days of the policy, which means if your tenants fall into arrears during that time and are not back up to date, you will be unable to claim.

Please note: The policy is taken by Cotters on behalf of the landlord, as part of Cotters service.
