Hazelton Mountford is a supplier of bespoke Insurance Products to Letting Agents throughout the UK. We provide insurance solutions that are tailored to your particular need and that are designed to fit your business model. We reduce the risk of letting for Landlords and tenants whilst at the same time providing you with an additional revenue stream.  

So What can we offer you? 

  • Rent and Legal Insurance : Our Group Policies enable you to provide Rent and legal Protection as part of your managed/let service. In the event of Rent Default the Legal Costs for eviction of the tenant are covered along with the Rent itself until vacant possession is gained. This protects your incomes and the Landlords rent. Policies are tailored to include Scottish Tenancy Law.
  • Tenants Insurance : Under a standard Home Contents policy tenants are not covered for accidental damage to their Landlords Contents. Our policy ensures that the tenants are covered for all accidental damage to their contents as well as their legal liability to the Landlord’s contents. They are also covered for alternative accommodation costs in event of damage to the property.
  • Landlord’s Insurance : Many Landlord’s will have policies that don’t adequately protect them whilst letting. Your policy with Hazelton Mountford will cover you for the Property whilst rented, accidental and malicious damage by tenants, property owners liability and your contents within the property.
