Whether you live abroad or in the UK, our insurance is designed specifically for landlords and buy-to-let owners with property in the UK. And so far more than 250,000 landlords have already taken the direct line.
Our Overseas Landlord Insurance provides the choice to increase limits and extend your cover. Bear in mind home insurance isn’t designed for rental properties, but specialist Landlord insurance is tailored for the job.
Our service also provides a range of convenient options for expat landlords, particularly if you're in a different time zone. If you’d like to speak to one of our insurance specialists, our phone lines are open from Monday to Friday 8am to 8pm, Saturday 9am to 5pm, and Sunday 10am to 4pm [GMT]. You can call them on 0345 303 1763.
Or if you prefer, you don't need to call us. You can buy, renew, amend and check the details of your policy online any time. Plus, our helpful live chat service is on hand to help from Monday to Wednesday 9am to 8pm, Thursday and Friday 9am to 6pm, and Saturday 9am to 2pm [GMT].
You may even want a family member, a friend or someone else closer to home to be able to make changes or updates to your policy. Direct Line for Business Landlord Insurance allows you to add the name of that person you’d like to handle the policy for you.
If you’re out of the country, your property may be out of sight and out of mind. One way to keep on top of your duties as an overseas landlord is through our Mobile Landlord App. The app allows you to manage up to five properties wherever you go, set important reminders such as gas safety certificate, and track your rental income and expenses.
Our flexible cover also allows you to add properties to an existing policy any time, giving you one simple renewal date and a multi-property discount.
Our specialist claims handlers have helped thousands of landlords get their properties back into action quickly and efficiently. For our customers living overseas, we provide a low cost phone number 0345 303 1763.
If you make a claim, we’ll allocate a dedicated claims handler to look after your claim from start to finish, to give that personal touch. Again, if you wish, you can nominate someone based closer to home to notify us of any claims and deal with us on your behalf.
