Rent Guarantee Insurance Reduces Arrears Risk

Private rented sector landlords who don’t use Rent Guarantee Insurance are at increased risk of suffering tenant rent arrears, as rent debt becomes the fastest growing debt problem in the UK according to one charity – The Money Advice Trust.

The charity claims that the number of private rented sector tenants calling them for advice regarding increasing rent arrears has risen year on year, with more than 20,000 calls answered between January and October 2013.

This represents a 37% increase of tenants worried about rent arrears in the past two years.

Private rental sector (PRS) landlords who are not adequately covered with rent guarantee insurance will be most at risk from this growing concern, as rent arrears are expected to continue to increase during 2014 as financial pressure increases on many families across the UK from all sides, with increasing energy costs, the rising cost of living and rent increases, as well as Government reform of the welfare state affecting many thousands of PRS tenants.For help and advice regarding tenant rent arrears, tenant eviction or to arrange a rent guarantee policy from just £95 for 6 months cover, please visit our website www.legal4landlords.com
