For the landlords that rent their property long-term, we advise taking out Legal Fees Protection Insurance. Once you have taken out this low-cost insurance, you are covered in the event of any dispute with the tenancy, such as the tenant defaulting on rent, or even a complaint from the tenant about the landlord. With help of this insurance, the case can be fast-tracked through an arbitration tribunal rather than a much lengthier process through court – saving both time and money for all concerned.
