For most people, their property is their biggest and most valuable asset – whether you have a property that you live in or whether you have property that you rent out, this is an asset that is worth a lot of money. For those who rent out properties, the fact that the property could be empty for short or lengthy periods is something that has to be taken into consideration, as this is the time when the property is most at risk of damage.
Tenant demand for properties both in Sunderland and throughout the U.K. is high at the moment due to the challenges in the mortgage markets. Lack of mortgage availability has pushed up tenant demand for rented properties, which is great news for private landlords. However, this does not mean that there will not be periods during which the property is left empty. Your property may be left untenanted for a period of time between tenants or in the event that the tenant abandons the property or has to be evicted.
With nobody living in the property, the risk of damage is naturally increased. For example, there could be a leak or fire at the property and nobody would be there to notice it until the damage was done. Similarly, the fact that the property is empty could make it more appealing to vandals and thieves who may target it for that very reason, causing damage that could prove very costly.
In order to minimise on financial losses stemming from damage to your property during periods when it is not occupied, it is advisable to find a good unoccupied residential property insurance plan, as this can provide you with valuable peace of mind and financial protection. With the right unoccupied residential property insurance you can make sure that the cost of sorting out damage that occurs whilst the property is empty is covered so you do not have to worry about facing crippling costs in the event of problems such as fire and water damage, malicious damage, and theft.
