Roland Smith offers Arc Legal's landlord package with cover for ID Theft

Roland Smith Insurance Brokers has appointed Arc Legal to provide landlord legal expenses protection which includes Identity Theft cover for the first time in such a package.

The package developed by Arc Legal includes cover for the legal costs associated with evicting a tenant, defence costs in prosecutions and neighbor disputes. Cover for loss of rent can be included as an optional extension to the package.

To provide even greater flexibility for landlords and less administration for the broker, the policy allows for unlimited changes to tenants during the period of cover. Many other products in the market require a new policy for each new tenant.
