Landlord insurance for asylum seeker tenants

Which type of landlord insurance is suitable when you have asylum seekers as tenants?

Firstly, it must be said that the market landlord insurance for tenancies which support asylum seekers is somewhat limited and, generally speaking, is 10-20% more expensive than standard buy to let property insurance. It is a slightly higher perceived risk according to insurers and this is reflected in the smaller pool of insurance providers.

We have come up with a list of several providers, but this should not be taken as an exhaustive list.

The following is an example of a 3 bed terrace property as an example, based in a nondescript town in the north of England, described as brick built and slate roof with a rebuild cost of £120,000:
