Rental guarantee insurance

Introduction

We believe that Movem is considerably safer than traditional referencing methods. For one, you know the transactions actually happened.

However, there are some circumstances out of our control — or even the applicant's control — where they are unable to pay rent. In these instances, this insurance policy is in place to make sure the landlord still receives their rental income.

What's covered

Our rental guarantee policy includes:

  • Missed rental payments — Cover for rental payments for up to 12 months (with one month excess).
  • Continued cover when vacant possession is obtained — 50% of the rent is covered for three months after vacant possession is obtained, whilst the property is still unoccupied.
  • Expert support when you need it most — In the event that a tenant breaches their tenancy agreement, our in-house Legal and Claims team will deal with the legal process for you.
  • Cover for Legal & Claim costs included as standard — Legal expenses covered up to the maximum sum insured of £50,000.

Pricing

The cost of your premium will depend on the monthly rental amount for the property — this monthly amount payable under the tenancy agreement.

Referencing required

In order to purchase insurance the applicant needs to be satisfactorily referenced. This is required for each tenant named on the AST.

Please note that cover purchased after tenants have moved in incur a 90 day no claims period.

Define: AST

Assured Tenancy Agreement — this is a joint tenancy where each tenant is responsible for the rent. Most common with students and couples.
