Landlords' cover

What is landlord cover? How much does it cost? Does it include boiler repairs and an annual Gas Safety Certificate? Read on for the answers.

Keep your appliances working and your tenants happy

Doing maintenance and repairs can be a full-time job for a landlord, especially if you have a portfolio of rental properties. But with HomeCare from British Gas, you’re covered in case anything goes wrong.

Report your emergency quickly and easily on our app, or by accessing your online account, and we’ll send an expert engineer round to take care of the problem.

Cover to suit you, and your budget

Choose your level of cover, and we’ll keep the appliances in your rental homes safe and working well. We can help you meet your legal obligations too, including your annual Gas Safety Certificate. And for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and all rented properties in Scotland, your Electrical Installation Condition Report.

With HomeCare our engineers will take care of the routine checks and maintenance of your gas appliances, and complete your Gas Safety Certificate. You can also get cover for your home electrics, drains and plumbing. Visit our website to explore all your cover options.

Add Repair and Ongoing Cover to your agreement, and any repairs will cost a fixed price of just £79 – no matter how long it takes and what parts we need. All parts and labour are included, so you don’t pay for any extras. 1 And unlimited call-outs are all part of the service.

If you’d prefer to pay for one-off repairs when they’re needed, you’ll get a fixed price from our engineer before they start the job. So you’ll know exactly what it’s going to cost. And every job comes with a one-year guarantee.
