Rental Protection Plan Launched

Did you know?

  • The number of households in UK’s private rented sector increased from 2.8 million in 2007 to 4.5 million in 2017 – that’s an increase of 1.7 million (63%)1
  • Only 26% of renters being likely to have life insurance or critical illness cover 2
  • It’s also predicted that by the 2025, 50% of adults under the age of 40 will be renting privately 3

We know that rental payments are every bit as important as mortgage payments in a household’s finances. With an extra 560,000 households expected to be living in private rented accommodation by 2023, the need for protection will be greater than ever 4.
