How can landlords best protect their income?

With everyone feeling the squeeze of an economy under pressure, it’s important for Landlords to protect themselves in the event that a tenant should be unable to meet their payments.  The losses can mount up - including lost rent for up to six months, eviction costs, legal fees and property damage, not to mention a period of vacancy post-eviction. 

Rent Protection Insurance might seem like another unwanted expense, but Landlords must seriously consider whether they could absorb the cost of a tenant who defaults - and if not, whether insurance could help them ride out the storm, and protect their income.
