You can purchase ShareCover even if you are not the owner of the property that you have listed on a recognised shared economy platform like Airbnb, Stayz, or TripAdvisor.
You must, however, obtain written consent from the landlord or property owner, and provide this when applying for a ShareCover policy, in order to get insured.
Also note that when you purchase ShareCover for a property you rent and do not own, it is the landlord or property owner who will be the beneficiary of any building claim that arises from the policy.
