    Boiler cover for landlord?

    Boiler cover for landlord? 11th Nov 07 at 11:48 AM
    I rent out a flat and manage it myself. I had a problem with a boiler last week and had huge problems finding a plumber. My usual one was on holiday and the 8 I called could not come out for at least 24 hours (even the emergency plumber). Was a total nightmare - tennant nearly moved out.

    I have therefore decided to get some sort of cover. I looked at the British Gas homecare 200. That would be enough - but are you allowed to use it on rented accomadation? I see they have a landlord cover for 18 a month - but that is more than I need (it gets you a gas certificate - which I already have and my local plumber does them for 40 - hardly worth the extra 7 a month).

    I have seen some smaller companies - but no idea how good they are and your unlikely to find out until you really need them.

    Does anyone know if I take the cover out - does it actually have to be me living in the property?
