Do I need boiler insurance?



Landlord boiler insurance

Do you need boiler insurance?  The short answer is of course not!  It's not a legal requirement and many landlords such as myself have managed with no or limited cover for years.  For a more in depth look at the whole topic of boiler insurance have a look at this investigation into landlord boiler insurance.

Landlord boiler insurance obsolescence 

More concerning for me and I suspect a lot of landlords is that of boiler obsolescence.  What do I mean by this?  Well it's not that the boiler has to be scrapped because it can't be repaired or no longer works properly.  No the problem is that the boiler as in my case can be fixed but the part is no longer available.  I have a property with a Baxi Solo Boiler and everything is fine apart from the plumber just cannot get the thermostat he needs to replace.  Have a look at the serial numbers and if you can find one or know somebody who supplies this part please let me know.  It will save me having to needlessly scrap a perfectly good boiler.
