If you are responsible for arranging insurance for blocks of flats, rental apartments or commercial buildings for other building owners, you need to be certain you’ve got the right policy with all the right cover.

What’s more, you’ll want to make sure that the premium charged represents good value for money. Choosing the wrong cover for a property can have a knock-on effect for many parties:

  • Individual residents or tenants within the building
  • The freeholder
  • Leaseholders
  • Mortgage lenders who have an interest in the building
  • The Residents’ Association or Residents Management Company for a residential block

The responsibilities and liabilities involved with arranging this type of cover can be onerous, and expert guidance is essential. Adler Insurance Group has years of experience in arranging insurance for blocks of flats. We work with managing agents, residents associations and property owners up and down the country to find the most suitable cover for you.

What cover do I need to arrange on behalf of my tenants?

You need to ensure you have building cover in place. If you are renting out  a furnished property , you should consider getting contents insurance.

Can you arrange immediate cover?

Yes. You can either speak to one of our specialist advisers on 0121 764 7575 or complete our contact form.

What happens to my tenants if my property becomes uninhabitable?

We will cover the cost of alternative accommodation for up to 20 % of the sum insured.

Can you insure my portfolio of properties?

Yes, we can. There is no limit to the number of properties we can insure per landlord. The more properties you insure with us, the more of a discount we can provide.

Can I have accidental damage cover?

Yes. Whether your property is professionally managed or not, we can add this on to your policy as an optional extra.

Do you provide property owner liability insurance?

Property owner liability insurance comes as standard as part of your buildings cover. If you require contents-only cover, this will need to be an add-on to the policy. Call our sales team on 0121 764 7575 for more information.

With Adler Insurance, you can be confident that, in the event of the worst happening, your claim will be handled by a dedicated claims team.

Simply contact our team using the details within your policy documents, or call them direct on 0121 764 7563. They will talk things through with you, guiding you through your next steps and the whole process.
