What Landlord Insurance Can Cover

When you insure a rental house or unit, you’re protecting yourself against loss of rental income as well. This safeguard helps protect your own lifestyle in case of disaster. Ask your local agent about which standard and add-on coverages are right for your situation.

Dwelling Protection


This covers your rental property and the structures attached to it, like a porch or deck. Damage from fire, falling trees, busted pipes, and more fall under this protection.

Other Structures Protection


Like other homeowner policies, unattached buildings and structures need their own coverage. This includes sheds, fences, in ground pools, carports, garages, and separate patios.

Liability Coverage


If your actions or neglect causes damage to your tenant or someone else visiting the property, this coverage helps pay the costs and protect your other assets.

Medical Protection Coverage


This coverage can help pay for medical expenses if someone is injured in an accident on your rental property, even if you’re not personally liable.

Questions To Ask Your Agent

Landlord insurance protects both your investment property and your personal assets. It helps you rebuild or repair your rental property from most natural and tenant-inflicted disasters, such as a falling tree slicing through the roof or a grease fire gone wild. Landlord insurance also has a liability component. If something happens to a tenant or visitor that’s your fault and you’re taken to court, landlord insurance helps pay damages so you’re not paying out of pocket.

Let’s say an electrical fire happens. If your rental property is uninhabitable due to damage, your tenants will need to move out temporarily and you’ll lose that rental income. Landlord insurance helps cover that lost income while the repairs are made for covered losses.

A rental property carries more risks than your own home, so standard homeowners insurance won’t cover it. Even a short-term rental needs to be checked against your policy. And if you have a mortgage for the property, most lenders will require the proper coverage. Ask your local agent about your specific situation.
