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.
It can cover everything from property damage to vandalism and more. Your local agent can help tailor a policy that protects your unique property, whether it’s house, apartment, or vacation condo. We’ll help identify your specific risks based on location, property type, your other assets, and more. Just ask for a free quote.
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.
