Simple Landlords Insurance awarded 5 Star Defaqto rating


Simple Landlords Insurance has become one of the few landlord insurance providers in the UK to be recognised with the highest 5 Star Rating from financial information business, Defaqto.  The rating recognises the quality and comprehensiveness of the features and benefits provided by the insurance policy, including the breadth and fairness of its terms and conditions.

The award of the rating is rare within the landlord insurance sector as only 19 % of landlord insurance providers have achieved the full 5 Star rating in 2017. 

Simple Landlords Insurance also holds a 4.4 rating out of 5 with the independent customer review service Feefo, and was highly commended at last month’s What Mortgage awards and named landlord insurance provider of the year at the Property Wire Awards in March.

Stuart Pendleton, Simple Landlords Insurance director, said: “We are delighted that the quality of our products has been independently recognised with such a high rating by Defaqto.  We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive cover and straightforward, excellent service and peace of mind to our landlords, without gimmicks.  Being one of only a handful of landlord insurers awarded the highest rating by Defaqto is testament and recognition of our ongoing commitment to providing high quality products and services.”

Brian Brown, Head of Insights at Defaqto added: “Our Star Ratings are unbiased and based on facts not opinions; they are created by our expert team who have unparalleled knowledge of the financial products and insurance policies available to consumers. Defaqto Star Ratings help consumers see, at a glance, where a product sits in the market based on the comprehensiveness of the features and benefits offered. For each product or insurance policy we assess between 40 and 100 features or benefits as well as the terms and conditions. This makes them increasingly important as a barometer of excellence in a constantly evolving market”
