Landlord insurance, also called rental property insurance, covers risks associated with renting your home, apartment, or condominium to tenants for long periods of time. Coverage typically includes loss of rental income for landlords along with property damage and liability costs. A landlord insurance policy is often recommended for homeowners who rent a property for any amount of time.
You may see landlord insurance also referred to as a DP3 (Dwelling Fire Policy).
Landlord insurance protects you and your property from damage, such as a fire or hail, similar to the homeowners insurance policy you’re familiar with. If you are renting a property and you have regular homeowners insurance, most likely damages will not be covered.
Landlord insurance is usually broken down into two parts — property coverage and liability coverage.Property coverage protects the physical structure of the home. This would be your walls, roof, flooring, and other physical features of the property.
A homeowners insurance policy and a landlord policy are similar in that they cover the physical structure of the building, but they differ in several important ways.
Yes. All mortgage companies or lenders will require that you have a landlord insurance policy on the property, even if you previously had a homeowners policy on the property.
Sometimes it can be, but it all depends on the property. Insurance carriers typically price these policies a little higher because you’re not living in the home and would potentially catch issues before they turn into larger problems.
Homeowner insurance is designed for individuals who own and live in a property, providing coverage for the home’s structure, personal belongings, liability, and additional living expenses. It addresses the needs and risks faced by residential property owners.
In contrast, landlord insurance is tailored for property owners who rent out their properties to tenants. It covers the rental property itself, including the building structure, attached or detached structures, and landlord-owned contents. Landlord insurance also includes liability coverage for injuries or damages on the rental property and provides protection for loss of rental income if the property becomes uninhabitable due to covered perils.
Determining the appropriate coverage amount for your rental property in a landlord insurance policy involves evaluating several key factors. Here are some steps to help you determine the coverage amount:
