Key features

Protect your landlords

Offer a competitive policy which pays out for up to 15 months' rent or until vacant possession, whichever comes first. We do the work on your behalf to recover any outstanding rent and make sure you don’t lose out during the process - and, while your landlord’s property is vacant, we’ll pay 75% of rent arrears for two months.

An insurance policy you can trust

We partner with DAS Insurance UK to underwrite our insurance policy. DAS has been giving customers legal help for over 40 years, and became one of the pioneers in the United Kingdom for legal expenses cover - meaning you can take confidence in your choice of provider.

Reduce admin

Our policy will manage much of the arduous admin that goes into recovering rent, or removing tenants or squatters from your landlord’s property - as well as covering any legal expenses. Our online claims process, for which we were awarded "Claims Partner of the Year" at the Insurance Times Awards 2020, can also help you file a claim in under 10 minutes on average.

Get rewarded for offering more

Attract new landlords by standing out from the competition when you offer our comprehensive Rent Protection and Legal Expenses policy as part of your service. And let’s not forget your current customers. Our comprehensive policy and support team ensure your landlords have full peace of mind with up to 15 months of payments covered, improving their experience with you and giving them a reason to return to you, year after year.

Easily monitor the status of your landlords' policies

Track the status of each of the policies your landlord takes out in your insurance dashboard on the platform - in real time.

Receive 24/7 expert support

The expert team at DAS Insurance UK are at the end of the phone, ready to take your call no matter what time of day, and are all fully trained to provide advice on commercial legal problems within UK and EU law.

We include the Rent Protection policy in all of our tenancies anyway. The current context is a great opportunity to really demonstrate to landlords why this extra protection is so valuable.

Samuel Fitz-Hugh - Settio

If it wasn't for Goodlord we wouldn't be offering insurance services. Goodlord’s made it easy for us. Everything’s on one platform, and the policies offered are second to none.

Alex Chapman - Anthony Lettings

The rent protection policy is favourable with Goodlord. The terms of the policy and the fact that you can get 75% of the market rent for two months after vacant possession is huge.
