Any tenant who is in employment, earning a regular income, is considered to be a professional tenant (or a working tenant).
Working tenants are by far the most sought after by landlords looking to fill their buy-to-let property, as they are considered to be of the least risk when it comes to paying their rent in full and on time. This also means that landlords could enjoy a lower premium as a result of letting to professional tenants that insurers deem to be low-risk. The dream tenant for most landlords is probably one who earns a salary far higher than their rent amount, has no pets, respectable savings, is a friendly and upstanding citizen, and so on.
Despite professional tenants having a regular income, there is never any guarantee that unfortunate events and accidents won’t occur. Whether this means there is accidental damage to the property, or the tenant falls onto hard times financially in future, finding themselves in rent arrears. Not to mention all the other risks that are present regardless of tenant type, including fire and weather damage to the building.
Just because you have hard-working, responsible, professional tenants does not mean that you are immune from everything else that could go wrong, and a strong insurance policy can protect you financially should the unforeseeable happen.
Landlord insurance can help to give you peace of mind when letting to professional tenants.
