Property Owners Legal Expenses Insurance
When you let out property there is always the chance of the unexpected happening.
Chasing tenants for the cost of damage, unpaid rent or even gaining possession of
the property can be costly and time consuming. Whether you're a landlord with a single
property or large portfolio, if the worst happens and you have a legal dispute, a
Policy with DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited will give you peace of mind.
Even when you follow the correct referencing procedure, you still may find you have
a tenant who damages your property, doesn't pay the rent on time or doesn't pay
the rent at all.
The DAS Policy (whether just Legal Expenses or incorporating Rent Arrears Insurance)
has been designed to resolve these problems and help you remove problematic tenants
and pursue them for unpaid rent. Problems also occur that no-one can predict such as
squatters and damage to your property. DAS will help in taking the appropriate legal
action in both of these circumstances.
For many tenancy disputes, DAS Legal Expenses Insurance Company Limited will be able
to negotiate a full settlement. However, if this is not possible, they will refer the
matter to a lawyer for further action and they will pay legal costs of up to an overall
limit of £50,000.
