FROM October 1st, Insurance Premium Tax (IPT) has gone up from 9.5% to 10%. This will make a difference to your home insurance - and your car insurance as well.

THE PROPERTY INSURER has been partnered with Property 118 for several years now and it is without hesitation that I recommend that landlords consider joining the new Property 118 Action Group. Property 118 is all about landlord welfare and protection, it fills a role that associations simply cannot take on. Without Property 118 the West Bromwich would have changed its…
