Property and liability coverage that helps protect owners from damages or injuries related to a rental property. Landlord insurance can provide coverage for structure damage, liability situations, and more. Property owners should consider a landlord home insurance policy if they’re responsible for the entire building, including the exterior and roof
LANDLORD PROPERTY PROTECTION
The property protection in a landlord insurance policy typically helps cover physical property related to the home you’re renting out. This may include the dwelling itself and the equipment you keep on-site to help maintain it. Coverage generally includes:
this coverage helps pay to repair your rented home, condo, or apartment if it’s damaged by fire, lightning, wind, hail, or other covered losses.
• Other structures.
this part of your policy helps pay to repair detached structures on your rental property, such as a detached garage or fence if they’re damaged by a covered loss.
• Personal property used to service the rental.
if you leave a lawnmower or snow blower onsite to maintain your rental property, landlord insurance may help cover this equipment if it’s damaged. However, if you leave your personal bike or computer at the home you rent out, it likely won’t be covered under your landlord policy.
There are several common riders that can come with landlord insurance policies. They’re not as vital as the key provisions mentioned above, but they could come in handy and save you some money in the long run.
• Guaranteed income insurance: This covers the landlord if a tenant comes up short on the rent for one month (or doesn’t pay at all).
• Flood insurance: Since many landlord insurance policies don’t include flood damage related to natural disasters or municipal plumbing, this coverage is worth adding if the property is in a flood-prone zone.
• Emergency coverage: In the event, a tenant calls you out to fix something like a leaking dishwasher or was accidentally locked out of the house, this feature can help cover some or all of the costs you incurred to travel to the property and resolve the issue.
What landlord insurance doesn’t cover.
Landlord insurance doesn’t cover a tenant’s belongings. For example, if the tenant’s car, furniture, and antique china collection are lost in a fire, doesn’t cover that. You should encourage your tenants to get renters insurance to cover their belongings.
Landlord insurance doesn’t cover repairs, either; if the dishwasher breaks or the furnace goes out, you’re responsible.
How Much Does Landlord Insurance Cost?
There is also an inverse relationship between the price of your premiums and the length of time the property is rented out. Expect to pay even more in annual premiums if you rent out your home for only 6months, instead of an entire year.
