New Residential Property underwriters in each RSA regional office


Authored by RSA

Residential property owners face a unique combination of risks by entrusting their accommodation to tenants and, however well-prepared they may be, accidents and disputes can and do happen. Having adequate insurance is vital to protect residential property owners’ investments and safeguard their financial future should an unpredictable event occur such as vandalism, fire or flood.

Our Residential Properties insurance has been designed by our in-house property experts to the meet the needs of commercial customers looking to insure residential dwellings let for income – from a single house or block of flats to an entire portfolio of UK properties. For risk features that fall within our standard parameters, our online platform enables swift ‘straight-through trading’ of our Residential Properties product. This includes portfolios of up to 20 properties, covering up to £2.5 million in value on blocks of flats and £1.5million on a single house.

For more complex requirements or risk profiles, you can trade manually with our expert underwriting team. You will have access to a specialist underwriter in your region with vast local knowledge of the commercial property sector. They will work closely with you to deliver a speedy, solutions-focused approach and tailor the appropriate level of cover for your individual customer’s needs – nothing more, nothing less – all in one easy-to-manage package.
