Keeping a roof over your head. Have you ever thought how you’d cover the cost of your rent if you were to become ill or injured and were unable to work? Your rented property is more than just the place you live, it’s your home.

Read our latest article on how Nicholas Humphreys (Sheffield – Broomhill & Crookes) can help you keep the keys to your home in your pocket with a Rental Protection Plan that could help you pay the rent on your home when you can’t.

Did you know the average UK employee has enough savings to last them just 32 days on their current lifestyle if their income stopped? Do you have the financial security for you or your family should the worst happen to help pay the rent?


Taking out a Rental Protection Plan is a great way to protect yourself, or the ones you love should the unexpected happen during the length of the plan. But don’t take our word for it, take a look at the facts below: 

  • If you have a fixed term Tenancy Agreement, you are committed to it with little chance of breaking away mid-term
  • Rental arrears could affect your ability to secure a new tenancy agreement or mortgage in the future
  • Employers are only obliged to pay Statutory Sick Pay for up to 28 weeks
  • On average, only 30% of employees have a financial back-up plan if they couldn’t work due to long-term critical illness, disability or loss of salary
  • In 2017, the average rent for a 2-bedroom property in England was £650 per month
    (in London it was £1,473)*

    How long could you afford to pay your rent if your income unexpectedly stopped?

Rental Protection Plan can provide financial support to cover rent payments in the event of an illness or incapacity leading to the inability to work and loss of income. It can help towards covering living expenses such as utilities, medical bills, childcare, and any other monthly outgoings.
