Landlords Invited To Talks With Government

Landlords Invited To Talks With Government

Bodies representing landlords have been invited to high-level talks with government ministers about the future of the private rental sector (PRS).

The government has proposed a ‘Renter’s Reform Bill’ that would see an end to Section 21 repossessions – so called ‘no fault’ evictions. It is now planning a white paper on the sector and National Residential Landlords Association (NRLA) chief executive Ben Beadle is among those invited to talks to discuss what the legislation might entail.

Property investors looking for a landlord insurance quote may be very interested in the outcome, as such cover can include protection against a loss of rental income from tenants who fail to pay or cause other costs to be incurred.

Discussing the meetings ahead, Mr Beadle commented that the changes the government has previously signalled represented “some of the biggest changes to the private rented sector in 30 years”.

He added: “It is therefore vital the Government ensures reforms are fair and workable for both landlords and tenants and we will be working with Ministers to make sure that is the case.”

Mr Beadle noted that one of the original proposals mooted two years ago was a strengthening of the right of landlords to evict tenants when they have a legitimate reason to do so, something he wants to see retained in any new legislation. He also called for a “tenant-landlord conciliation service” to resolve disputes.

The issue of evictions has come back on the agenda this month after the Covid-related ban on them was lifted in England.

While many tenants have been unable to pay rent due to the financial impact of the pandemic, landlords have also been unable to evict those who have failed to pay without good reason.

The NRLA has joined a number of other bodies in calling for government financial help to help both landlords and renters who have been struggling financially because of the pandemic and the consequent inability to pay the rent.

Looking for Landlord Insurance but been refused insurance cover before?  See some of the reasons below…

The most obvious reason for being refused insurance will often be the simple fact that you were refused insurance in the past.

For businesses providing cover, this is of course a simple way for them to mitigate their risk, filtering out those potential new customers that have been deemed to be too high a risk in the past!

Should this be the case with your property then check the small print of the policy with your provider. You need to be certain that you do have insurance in place, whatever the case may be.

Is your rental property secure from break-ins?

You will often be asked when you are arranging property insurance about the type of locks that you have got installed in your front door. You may also be asked to guarantee that all of your properties windows can be locked with a key. Naturally, it is most sensible to fit locks to your doors and windows that comply with the highest security standards, for peace of mind if nothing else.

The thing is, you may not know that your insurance request may be declined if you do not comply with the relevant security standard that the Insurance provider has chosen to adhere to.

Again, check the policy detail to see exactly what the requirements actually are, do not just sign-up blindly to anything!

You should have put formal tenancy agreements in place

In this day and age, the vast majority of insurance companies will require their landlord customers to have signed formal tenancy agreements with their rental properties tenants. If you do not already have tenancy agreements in place then, again, check with your provider.

In certain cases, cover may still be possible, for example if you are renting to family or friends, but so check first.

Declared bankrupt or have a Credit history with CCJ’s (County Court Judgement’s)?

Should you have been declared bankrupt or had any CCJ’s issued against you, then you may find that it is not possible to arrange landlord cover. This however depends on the cover provider. It is still possible to arrange a policy. If in doubt, contact us today and we will explain exactly what is possible.
