Is This Legal? Mandatory Content Insurance With Letting Agent

Recommended Posts

Just looking at the terms and condition of Andrews Letting Agency:

Andrews link

"What about contents insurance

Because it can be difficult for tenants to arrange contents insurance Andrews has a block policy. This protects your own personal possessions as well as your liabilities in respect of the landlord's contents, fixtures and fittings. This insurance is mandatory and carries an additional charge."

I've already got content insurance for my current property, when I move I intend to transfer it, + I'm sure it falls under the FSA as you can't make somebody take out a product (it's uncompetitive!).

Any info appreciated.

Not sure on the legality of it but to my knowledge there is no difficulty what so ever in tenants getting contents insurance, most (if not all of the main insurance companies provide it).

I've just renewed at current property, I went through confused.com and had atleast 5 sensible quotes + one daft one for £1300!!!

Sounds like another opportunity to skim some more cash.....
