Secure Your Investment | Landlord Insurance for Your Rental Property
Real estate and rental property owners encounter distinctive risks, necessitating coverage for assets often excluded in standard homeowners insurance. Also known as Fire Dwelling Insurance or Lessor's Risks, landlord policies address the unique needs of property owners by providing specialized coverage tailored to the complexities of rental property ownership.
Landlord policies typically offer comprehensive coverage, encompassing the building, loss of income, personal property, liability coverage, and more. For added protection against increased and unforeseen liability, landlords may find it beneficial to consider an umbrella policy, especially in the event of incidents on their premises. Ensuring sufficient coverage for both the building and rental income is crucial, guaranteeing that income from properties continues in the event of significant loss.

Dwelling Coverage (Rebuild Value)
Property or Dwelling Coverage is the financial safeguard that covers the costs of rebuilding or repairing your rental property in the event of a catastrophe, such as a fire or windstorm.
Coverage for secondary structures refers to protection for additional constructions not directly attached to the rental home. This may encompass detached garages, sheds, fences, awnings, and other structures.
Personal Property Coverage
If you have furnishings, appliances, and other property in your rentals, this coverage is designed to assist in replacing these items in the event of a loss, including scenarios like fire, theft, water damage, and more.
Fair Rental Value Coverage/Rental Income
In the event of a covered loss to your rental property, this coverage ensures that you will continue to receive payment for the loss of income from your tenant.
This coverage comes into play if someone is injured or their property is damaged, and you are found legally responsible. It covers both the cost of damages and the expenses associated with defending yourself in such situations.
Medical Payments to Others
This coverage addresses immediate medical expenses for guests who sustain injuries on your property. It is important to note that it does not extend to cover you or any members of your household.
Ordinance or Law
This coverage addresses costs arising from changes in municipal laws or building codes that have evolved since the construction of your structure. It provides coverage for the additional expenses incurred during reconstruction or repair to comply with the updated regulations.
Landlord policies exhibit significant variations in pricing and coverage breadth, determined by factors such as policy form, coverage amount, and the type of home being insured.
