A description of the current situation: IE has the tenant moved out or are they still occupying the property?
Any and all communications you have had with the tenant with regards to rent arrears and missing payments.
Any breach by the tenant entitling you to payment in respect of monthly rent and £5,000 of legal costs and expenses to obtain possession of the property.
The rent guarantee extends to covering legal expenses so that you have protection in the event of a default. Legal proceedings will usually be pursued when attempting to evict a tenant.
We don’t guarantee damage to the property or failure by the tenant to pay bills or auxiliary services.
No. We guarantee the tenant’s ability to afford rent, rather than insuring the property. Therefore, we charge a fee per tenant.
If the tenant changes, the new tenant will need to pass Homeppl tenant referencing and a new guarantee will be required for protection.
Our guarantee starts when the tenant moves in and ends when you gain possession of the property.
Up to 12 months of the tenant’s share of rent, less the value of the deposit.
We guarantee for a 12 month period.
In the aftermath of the pandemic, the property and rental markets have yet to settle. The UK is experiencing a cost of living crisis as war continues to rage in Europe. Even the most responsible tenants may experience financial insecurity. The Homeppl Guarantid product ensures that your rental income is still paid no matter what circumstance arises.
There are many landlords who rely solely upon rental payments as a form of income. Where rent guarantee insurance would mean an approximate 90-day wait to retrieve that income, we keep that cash flow live for our clients.
Homeppl offers the letting agents we work with one simple thing: the knowledge that the tenants approved for their property are right for them, fully vetted and very unlikely to default on their rent or provide fraudulent & fake information. Our rental income protection offers the same thing: peace of mind. Whilst investing in any cover or rent guarantee insurance is not a legal requirement, it is a handy tool to ensure your landlords receive their money on time.
Whilst a Homeppl tenant has been through the most rigorous tenant referencing process currently available, there are ample reasons why somebody may default on their rent. If this happens and your landlord is not protected, this has negative consequences for everybody involved. If this happens and your landlord has chosen rent guarantee insurance, it is likely they will not receive any covered rent payments until they have gone through a lengthy, over-bureaucratic process that could last months.
If a landlord choses Homeppl income protection, they will receive the full protection payment the same day as default.
Most landlords have mortgages. During a cost of living crisis, rental income becomes incredibly valuable. Non payment can go on for a considerable amount of time before an eviction notice is finally served. Rent arrears can build up into the tens-of-thousands. Most rent guarantee insurance policies will then include another month or two in claimant process. Get legal expenses covered and rent payments sent instantly with our scheme.

Firstly, rents are rising and rising and are expected to climb over the coming months and years. The average rent per calendar month across the United Kingdom is £1,103 as of May 2022. That’s a lot of income to miss out on. With rent guarantee insurance, you could wait up to 90 days to receive this money owed to you. We pay out the exact same day your tenant defaults.
One must assess the risk of the current recession and economic stability as well as general health following a pandemic. Renters may unfortunately lose their jobs or fall ill. Further more, employers only have to pay out statutory sick up to 28 weeks.
Legal & General released a guides that stated that the average employee in Britain only has enough savings to cover them financially for just 24 days should they stop receiving income. That would likely lead to rent arrears and the amount of money owed to your landlords would grow into cumulative months.
The Homeppl income protection product is available to 95% of tenants because our vetting and qualification technology is so accurate in assessing the true viability of a tenant. Our insurance equivalent is available quickly, efficiently and only costs £80 + VAT per tenant.
Nothing. Another difference between standard rent guarantee insurance policies for landlords and lettings agents and the Homeppl Guarantid product is that all tenants who we guarantee are personally tested via 150+ financial and residential validity checks before we OK them.
With a standard rent protection insurance policy the landlord or letting agent would need to worry about ensuring that no tenants falsify their affordability documents, ensure they have no active CCJs or bankruptcies that could lead to a higher risk, and also stress check proof of identification.
Homeppl catch 100% of rental fraud through unique-to-market technology. We can accept so many more tenants via our rent guarantees because if there is any risk involved in rental applications we will eliminate it from the outset. You're best off having the full weight of the best fraud technology on the market behind you.
Simply contact your account manager and present the following information in your correspondence:
Your account manager will work quickly to assess the information and seek to pay out the missing rent the same day. We pride ourselves on an effortless experience for our letting agents whose landlords are tired of the long-winded and bureaucratic processes involved with rent insurance.
No. This rental income protection product is to protect the rent of tenants who default but are still residing within the rental property.
Unlike most rent insurance policies that typically cover up to four tenants per policy, Homeppl Guarantid cover can be taken out on as many tenants as is required. The only pre-requisite is that they have been validated by us first for one of our letting agent partners.
