How to Insure a Rental Property – Landlords Insurance
If you own a home and rent it to others, Stillwater Insurance Group offers a Landlords Insurance Plan also known as a Tenant Occupied Dwelling Fire Policy. It is essential to assure that the correct insurance form is in place for your rental home; don’t be surprised in the unfortunate event of a claim with the wrong insurance policy.
Homeowners Insurance policies have an Occupancy Clause which simply defines a Homeowners Insurance Policy as the Primary residence of the titled owner of the home. If the homeowner moves out and decides to rent out the home, a homeowners policy would become null and void due to the form definition.
Whether you are property investor with many rental homes or a first-time landlord with a single rental, it is essential to get the protection you need and deserve. Loss of Rental Income and Premises Liability Coverage are items that are usually found on a rental property insurance policy.
A Dwelling Fire Policy or a Landlord Protection Package is necessary to provide coverage for the rental home and liability coverage for the premises.
