  • Commercial landlord insurance

  • Masterhead
  • Commercial property comes in all shapes and sizes

    And so does our commercial landlord cover

    Whether you rent out offices, shops, warehouses or surgeries, we’ve got you covered with our commercial landlord insurance.

    You get all the advantages of our residential landlord insurance policy – like up to £10m property owners’ liability cover and protection for up to 10 properties – plus a range of optional extras that you can choose to tailor your commercial landlord cover.

    What's covered by AXA Commercial Landlord Insurance?

    With commercial landlord insurance from AXA, you get a solid foundation for your investment. As standard, you’ll get:

    • Protection for up to 10 properties
    • Property owners' liability for up to £10 million
    • Glass and keys replacement cover
    • Underground pipe and cable cover
    • Trace and access cover to find the source of leaking pipes
    • Cover to re-house any residential tenants if your property can’t be accessed or lived in due to damage

    Optional extras

    Commercial properties come in all shapes and sizes – and your protection needs will depend on your property's location and the type of work your tenants are involved in.

    That’s why you can add any of the following covers when you get a quote:

    Accidental damage cover – covers your property's structure, floors and fittings, for example if a tenant accidentally spills wine on your carpet or water enters into your property if your roof leaks unexpectedly

    Contents cover – if you've provided your tenants with fixtures and fittings, shelving or racking, you can boost your protection with up to £50,000 worth of contents insurance

    Loss of rental income – if your commercial property is empty as a result of accidental fire, flooding or damage, you can claim back the loss of rent.

    Subsidence, ground heave and landslip cover – engineers’ fees and repair costs for properties damaged by subsidence can soon add up – but you can rest easy if you take this optional cover (which is a requirement of some mortgages)

    Employers' liability insurance – if you employ someone to carry out work on your commercial property, you’re responsible for their safety – and we’ll cover you in case they make a compensation claim for injury, illness or disease
