Are you ready to let it snow, let it snow, let it snow?
Friday 01 December 2017
With parts of the UK waking up this morning to the first snow-fall of the season, it’s time for landlords everywhere to make sure their properties are ready for the white stuff...
While snow can be very pretty, it’s also very wet, cold, and heavy - and that’s not always good news for houses. Add in ice and hail and there’s potential for a nasty accident or some significant damage.
“Last year we got away pretty lightly,” says Alex Huntley, Head of Operations at Simple Landlords Insurance. “But this year we look set for a proper Winter - and that means landlords need to be properly prepared.
“By taking some very simple measures now - checking your roof, clearing your guttering and protecting your pipes - you could prevent time consuming and potentially expensive problems from developing down the line.”
