Even with a good tenancy agreement in place, landlords can find themselves in various situations which require legal action in order to reach a satisfactory solution. Obvious examples are when you need to evict a tenant and repossess your property, when a tenant is behind with rent and you need to chase up rent arrears or fighting any claim brought against you for damages relating to your role as landlord. Some policies will also cover you for fees involved in dealing with investigations relating to income tax, PAYE, VAT, etc.

If you have to pursue rent arrears without insurance, it can be a lengthy battle involving the courts and legal advice, putting a big hole in any rent that you do eventually manage to recover. Some legal costs may be included in other landlord insurance policies you have, but you need to understand what is and is not covered in order to ensure there are no gaps or insufficient levels of cover.
