Real estate landlord can be a lucrative business. All you have to do is buy a property and rent it out for regular monthly payments. While this is true, you can get in the hot water if you are not careful about getting proper insurance. Not having adequate insurance, or even the right type, can have significant financial impact, both personally and in the business. Nowhere is this truer than in London where the huge variety of properties, people and price variance all contribute towards the number of different insurance policies available to landlords.
