Commercial Landlord Insurance

Up to £2 million Public Liability cover included as standard.


What is Commercial Landlord Insurance?

Commercial Landlord Insurance is for landlords renting out their property to a third-party business. For example, an industrial unit or shop, including where the premises is a mix of commercial and residential use i.e. a shop with a residential flat above it.

Commercial properties are often built differently from residential properties and face different risks that a residential landlord policy won’t cover, including heating systems.

With our Commercial Landlord Insurance, you get the same benefits as you do with residential cover, along with a choice of optional extras to suit your business needs.

Buildings cover is compulsory for commercial premises.

If tenants are living at your property, you need a Residential Landlord Insurance policy, or if you have a mixed portfolio of residential and commercial properties, you need a multi-property policy.

Buildings Insurance

If your property is unfurnished without contents, you can take out an insurance policy that covers your buildings only.

Churchill can offer up to £15 million buildings cover as standard.

Contents Insurance

If your property is furnished or part-furnished, you can take out an insurance policy to include your contents.

Churchill offers up to £1.5 million cover for damage to furniture, fixtures, and fittings that don’t form a permanent part of your property’s structure.

You can only take out Contents Insurance separately if your building is occupied by residential tenants.
