Are Cannabis farms damaging landlords?

94% of cannabis farms have been located in domestic premises. Landlords properties which have been used report damage to Ceilings, Severe Water Damage plus many others resulting in £1000’s in damage.

Standard ‘buy to let’ insurance  does not cover all of these damages, so its very important the landlords read the fine print.

WE CAN HELP

Our advice to reduce exposure is

Vet – tenants who live at the property
Reference – be robust in your referencing procedures
Inspect – undertake periodic inspections of the property
