Overseas Landlord Insurance

Whether you're an expat or just overseas temporarily...

Our Landlord Insurance can cover your rented property back in the UK.

We're proud of our What Mortgage award. Here's what customers say about our landlord insurance.

Overseas Landlord Insurance

Landlord Insurance. Keeping your investments safe no matter where you are.

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.

Easy Contact

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-6pm, Saturdays 9am-3pm.

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 online here.

Flexible options to manage your policy

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.

Our flexible cover also allows you to add properties to an existing policy any time, giving you one simple renewal date.

Claims made easy

Our specialist claims handlers have helped thousands of landlords get their properties back into action quickly and efficiently.

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.
