This will ultimately translate to more affordable rates to the end user.
Darren has seen the problems with the current state of landlord insurance and stated, ““We set out to build the product that we wanted to use ourselves. Our goal is to modernize landlord insurance all the way from the initial purchase through to paying out claims so that property owners are protected and served the way they should be.”
