Direct Line for Business has launched new landlord emergency cover, which includes call-out charges, costs for labour and materials up to £1,500 per claim.
The insurance cover, which allows policy-holders to make as many claims as they need, offers a 24-hour claims line which will send out a certified contractor to secure or prevent further damage to the property.
Furthermore, tenants are able to make a claim and have an emergency dealt with on behalf of the landlord, saving time and potentially further damage.
Contractors covered include drainage engineers, electricians, glaziers, locksmiths, plumbers, pest control, roofers, gas and heating engineers as well as general trades people.
Jazz Gakhal, managing director at Direct Line for Business, commented: “Emergencies are unfortunately a part of life and often unforeseen. This cover gives an element of control back to landlords and tenants.
“No landlord wants their tenant to be faced with unreasonable discomfort, so in the event of an insured emergency, we hope this new cover will allow for a harmonious relationship between landlords and tenants while giving peace of mind to both parties.”
