Landlords of residential properties will often encounter problems with tenants but what about smaller unwelcome visitors taking up residence? Pests can not only cause damage to a property but create an uncomfortable living environment. There are also difficult conversations to overcome with tenants as to whose responsibility it is to get rid of the pest problem. ARAG’s emergency assistance policy for landlords provides the solution.
ARAG’s expanding range of emergency assistance products includes Landlord’s Emergency Solutions which has been designed specifically for landlords of residential property. This cost-effective insurance product provides assistance from a qualified contractor if an unforeseen event makes the property unsafe to occupy or causes actual or potential damage to the property or its contents. Insured events (see list below) include vermin infestation, something that marks Landlord’s Emergency Solutions out from many others.
• Breakdown of the main heating system
• Plumbing and drainage problems
• Damage to or failure of locks and windows
• Breakage or failure of the sole toilet unit
• Loss of the domestic power supply
• Vermin infestation
• Emergency alternative accommodation for tenants if the property is unsafe to occupy.
