Rent & Legal Protection

For letting agents to be able to arrange Rent and Legal Protection is clearly desirable; landlords feel more confident, and letting agents across the UK including in London, Hertfordshire and the South East can protect their current landlords and attract new business.

As a letting agent, we understand how important it is for you to look after your landlord. We also understand how difficult and frustrating it can be to try and overcome the numerous regulatory compliance hurdles involved with the purchase of Rent and Legal Protection insurance. Invariably this leads to protection not being put in place for neither the letting agent nor the landlord.

The innovative protection available from Diligent overcomes this hurdle. Developed with letting agents in mind, our range of Rent and Legal Protection is available without any red tape and can be applied to all types of lets, including those involving foreign tenants, companies, and individuals in receipt of low/zero income. The only stipulation is that all tenants and guarantors (if applicable) must undergo and pass our Full Tenant Reference procedure.
