Changes to Vero Secure Landlord Insurance Policy

Given the uncertainty around the evolving COVID-19 situation, Vero has placed an embargo on the option to implement Loss of Rent - Tenant Default cover on a new landlord policy, or to add it to an existing Vero Secure Landlord Insurance policy.

How does this affect new and existing policies?

Existing policies

  • All policies will retain the Loss of Rent - Tenant Default option, if it was previously selected.
  • The option can no longer be added to an existing policy.
  • The option to add Loss of Rent - Insured Event cover to existing policies is still available.

Policy renewals

  • If the Loss of Rent - Tenant Default option has already been added to an existing policy, Vero will continue to offer this cover with your renewal.
  • The option to add Loss of Rent - Tenant Default cover to an existing policy upon renewal, is no longer available.
  • The option to add Loss of Rent - Insured Event cover is still available at renewal.

New business

  • The Loss of Rent - Tenant Default option is no longer available for new policies.
  • In the instance where a valid quote for Loss of Rent - Tenant Default cover has been provided prior to 27 March 2020 the cover will be considered.
  • The option to add Loss of Rent - Insured Events cover to new business policies is still available

Will there be any changes made to the claims assessment process?

There is no change to how rent default is treated at the time of a claim.

How long will this change remain in place?

This is a temporary measure and it will be reviewed regularly.
