The best rent guarantee policies can bring some useful added extras. Some promise to help trace ‘gone away’ tenants against whom you can ultimately claim any unpaid rent. Others have links to discount credit check and other tenant verification services you can use when you vet new residents. Related legal protection insurance is another common add-on – this provides the funds and the experts to fight claims made against you by your tenants, for example. It should also give the same benefits if you need to take a case against them.
