If your tenant terminates the contract early, no worries about the plan, you have bought for 12 months. As long as there are no claims, this policy can be fully transferred to cover the next replacement tenant during the Landlord Rental Protection Plan period, provided that the tenant is qualified under credit check. The Landlord Rental Protection Plan will be counted based on the old rental price and Landlord Rental Protection Plan package. Take note that the Landlord Rental Protection Plan period will not be paused upon no tenancy.

Example Scenario:

Tenancy : 1 January 2020 – 31 December 2020 (12-month period)

Coverage :
Loss of Rental: Up to RM2000 (Subject to 20% excess)
Inconvenience Benefit: Up to RM1,000

Case 1 –  Minor Claim:

The tenant moved out early and failed to serve two months’ notice. However, the landlord manages to get a new tenant to replace the current tenant. The current tenant left a unit with door knob damage and unpaid utilities.

Loss:
Outstanding Utilities: RM100
Door knob: RM50

Claim from inconvenience benefit, and now the balance of inconvenience is RM850. How many the landlord can carry forward to the new tenant?

Coverage:
Loss of rental: up to RM2000
Inconvenience: up to RM850 (deducted from the previous claim)
Household contents damage: Up to RM15,000

For this case, the landlord may choose to continue the Landlord Rental Protection Plan to a new tenant and pay some prorated amount only. Coverage that carries forward to a new tenant is the balance only.

Case 2 – Major claim:

The tenant left the property and left unpaid rent for two months, unpaid utilities for RM800 and some cleaning for RM100.

Loss:
Rent : RM1600 (80% from total rent for basic plan)
Utilities : RM800

After this amount is approved and reimbursed to the landlord. Here is the balance of the Landlord Rental Protection Plan:

For this case, the landlord is advised to buy a new Landlord Rental Protection Plan instead.
