Mortgage Advice....

For landlords wishing to purchase one or more properties as an investment we have a specialist Independent Mortgage Broker, Clive Burton who is able to arrange the best Buy-To-Let mortgages with all the leading providers.


Covered gives you absolute peace of mind when it comes to your tenant’s rental payments. If you take this option you will receive your rental payments each and every month whether or not your tenant pays. You will also receive our first class management and rent collection service.

There are many Rent Guarantee Packages on the market but these all pay out AFTER a tenant falls behind with the rent.

With Covered you do not have this worry.

How Does it Work?

Subject to successful referencing and relevant contracts being signed we will pay our Landlord the full rent every month (subject to a premium management service being taken). Any problem with the tenant paying the rent will be dealt with by our underwriters, this includes eviction proceedings and any associated legal costs.

The Benefits

  • Landlord receives all of the rent every month without fail
  • Up to £50,000 worth of cover for rent arrears & legal expenses
  • Will cover rent up to £5,000 per month
  • Protects the Landlord’s cash flow
  • Complete Peace of Mind

Covered is subject to terms & conditions. Please contact your local Barrett office for details.
