Alan Boswell Group the provider of Insurance Services to PIMS members has consistently come out as one the of the UK’s best landlord insurance suppliers. Not only has it just been voted #1 by Bought By Many, but it consistently receives outstanding customer reviews on Feefo too (you can read some reviews here).
It also offers a broad range of covers including rent guarantee, landlord legal expenses, home emergency and even unoccupancy insurance, so you’ll get the insurance you need.
Anyway, the main reason I’m writing to you today is that ABG currently has a ‘Price Beater’ offer – they’re guaranteeing to beat your current premium for like-for-like cover– which could save you more than our existing 10% discount.

If you register your interest now they can hold the deal for you – so it doesn’t matter if your insurance isn’t due yet.
