• DSS Landlord Insurance Policies

    Department of Social Services tenants (or DSS tenants) unfortunately don’t enjoy the best of reputations for a couple of reasons. First of all there are often more complexities involved with receiving payments, secondly because there can be a propensity to struggle to meet the monthly rent and thirdly, a minority of DSS tenants can be considered to be ‘difficult’.

    This can lead some landlords to think twice about letting their properties to them, however DSS insurance, available here at CIA Insurance, can provide you with total peace of mind.

    Legal expenses and rent guarantee insurance is available for DSS tenants to give you added protection if they stop paying the rent

  • Here at CIA we specialise in DSS tenant insurance, backed by a panel of leading insurers that ensure we are able to offer low excesses as well as great rates for all of the basics, including buildings insurance, contents insurance, rent guarantee and property owners liability.

DSS Tenants FAQs

  • Will my policy automatically renew?

    None of our policies are automatically renewed, we will contact you 25 days prior to the renewal date with our renewal quotation with follow up notifications and ask you to contact us if your wish to proceed.

  • Does my policy include legal cover?

    We do have insurers that will offer standard legal cover as part of the policy, but this is not standard on all of our policies. We can however provide this as a separate policy and also offer Rental Guarantee to cover Landlords in the unfortunate event of Rental arrears.

  • Can cover be increased after the un-occupancy clause?

    Unfortunately we are unable to increase cover if at the end of an un-occupancy clause if the property remains vacant, cover is reduced and then increased when the property is again re tenanted. However we do offer policies that will extend cover if the property remains unoccupied as a new policy.
