Can Landlords Get Multi-Property Discounts?

The short answer to this question is yes but you need to be good customer with the insurance company. Here’s a list of what you can expect from a landlord insurance company when you have multiple properties that need to be insured.

What if you need insurance for more properties with the same insurer?

Most insurance companies will offer you a discount but you’ll need to have at lease 3 or more properties under one insurance policy. Most of the time you’ll need to get a quote for each policy and take the policies out.

Then the discount is applied.

What if I have more than 3 properties?

The same again, if you need a portfolio of properties, you’ll get an extra discount and sometime a dedicated account manager, that’s there for you, when you need him or her.

The benefit of having a dedicated account manager

The benefits include, quicker support regarding your policy and making amendments. Someone to take to about your policy whenever you want an explanation about part of your claim or any other information you require.
