Landlord Insurance provides coverage for property owners renting out one or more residential homes, apartments, or condos. As a landlord, you need protection from financial loss that may result from damages to a rental property due to fire, break-in, severe weather and more.
What is Covered by Landlord Insurance?
If your home is damaged from house fires, severe weather, falling objects, or vandalism, dwelling coverage can help pay to repair or rebuild your home. Limits are based on the estimated cost of rebuilding your home.
Other Structures Protection
If any detached structures are damaged like garages, sheds, and fences on your property, other structures coverage can pay for covered damages.
Premises Liability Coverage
This will cover you if you’re sued after an accident, damage or loss related to your property. For example, you might have a lawsuit on your hands if your tenant injures himself on broken stairs in your rental.
Fair Rental Income Coverage
If your rental becomes uninhabitable due to a covered loss and your tenants have to move out, this coverage will help pay the rental income you would otherwise lose.
Premises Medical Protection
If someone is injured in an accident on your rental property, this type of coverage can help pay for reasonable and necessary medical expenses.
This add-on can help cover the cost to repair or replace what was damaged if your rental is vandalized. This will also provide coverage for belongings used for the rental property.
Adding burglary coverage to your landlord insurance policy could help pay for the repairs or replacements your dwelling needs. This can include belongings used for your rental property as well.
Rental Property Under Construction
If you’re renovating a rental property or building a new construction, this additional coverage could help cover the dwelling before it’s ready for occupancy.
Adding building code coverage to your landlord policy could help cover the increased cost of enforcing any building codes, ordinances or laws regulating the construction, reconstruction, maintenance, repair or demolition of your dwelling.
