Thinking of letting your property?

There are many different reasons why you may be thinking about letting your property. Maybe you are buying a holiday let and are looking for a good business opportunity? Or you already have a holiday cottage that you have been using with your family, but the children are getting older now and losing interest in family holidays? Letting your property can give you a good additional income, may help with paying your mortgage and can be a convenient means of looking after your property if you live away and are unable to visit your cottage or apartment very often. Although letting a holiday cottage is a great responsibility and you should consider it carefully, it can also be fun and a truly rewarding experience.

The provision of suitable insurance cover for your holiday property is paramount. It is a specific requirement of our Letting Agreement that you insure the property and its contents to their full value, and notify your insurance company that it is let for holiday use. It is wise to insure against loss of income in case your property requires work or repairs which render it unsuitable for letting. And we also ask that you have Public Liability insurance cover of no less than two million pounds, or not less than five million pounds for a property with occupancy of eight or more people.

We always suggest that you obtain advice from a specialist broker who understands your needs, and are happy to suggest Boshers Ltd who will be happy to discuss Holiday Home Insurance for your furnished holiday let. You can give Boshers a call on 01237 429444 for advice and quotations, or visit
