"We inherited 2 rental homes after my parents passed away, we live in a Condo and I had no idea about insurance. As soon as we got a quote, I asked a ton of questions and we were insured the same day! The homes were older and I'm glad we were still able to get insurance. Thanks for the patience and answering all my questions!"

Landlord Insurance

Landlord Insurance is generally meant to protect one to four unit rental properties; this would be inclusive of apartments, condominiums, and single or multi-family homes that you own and rent to others.  

Insurance and Real Estate works similarly; Residential Property is comprised of 1 – 4 unit dwellings; Commercial Property would include any residential building of 5 or more units.  

Coverage Details

A Landlord Insurance Policy will help protect you financially from damages or injuries related to your insured rental property.  Landlord Insurance Policies are designed for free standing 1 -4 unit dwellings; if you own and rent out a Condo or Townhome Unit, you would purchase an HO-6 or Unit Owner’s Policy instead.

Types of Hazard Insurance

  • Rental property insurance and Landlord insurance are actually the same thing; they are both also known as Hazard Insurance by mortgage companies and simply Home Insurance by many property owners.
  • Although you can name the policy whatever you’d like, it is important to differentiate the coverage offered by the actual policy as a Rental Home risk is quite different to an Owner Occupied Home risk.
  • A Landlord Insurance Policy will afford coverage for the Dwelling (Building), Other Structures (Fences, exterior structures etc…), Loss of Rental Income (Due to covered loss) & Premises Liability.
  • It is important not to confuse this coverage with a similarly looking list of coverage on Homeowners Insurance policies.

The Landlord Insurance contract differs in many ways from the Homeowners Insurance contract; where the tenant-occupied property is deemed a higher risk, the owner-occupied property has a broader reach of coverage. These 2 very different forms of insurance are not an option; the correct form is necessary to cover the specific residential occupancy.

It is both a required expense, a necessary expense and an expected business deduction for tax purposes.  Please ask your tax professional for specific questions which may pertain to this topic.
