A friend has insurance with Joe and said to give him a call. Joe was very professional and willing to take the time to explain new options and found me new homeowners insurance which saved me over $300 a year. To top it off, Joe also took the time to research and found me car insurance with a highly reputable company which again, saved me over $300 a year from my current company. Great communication!!! Got back to me quickly to answer all of my questions. Makes you feel important and not just a number. A+++

  • Our agents are continuously training, so they stay the leading experts in their field.

Liability Coverage

Liability coverage helps protect you against financial losses if someone gets injured on your property. It is designed to pay any associated medical bills and any lawsuits arising from the injury.

A good example of this would be if you failed to maintain the porch and your tenant falls. In this instance, you would be responsible for any medical bills, and if the tenant sues you for lack of maintenance, this insurance would help pay for any legal expenses.

Property Coverage

The property coverage part of the landlord insurance is designed to pay for damage to the structures on the property that the landlord owns and any equipment the landlord owns that is on the property.

  • Dwelling Coverage – This covers the main structure that is being rented to tenants. The main structure could be a home, apartment or condo. Events that may be covered include fire, wind damage and certain types of weather events. To get a full list of types of covered damages, it’s best to talk to your insurance agent and read your policy.
  • Additional Structures Coverage – If your property has outbuildings, fences or walls, this coverage helps financially protect you if they are damaged due to a covered event.
  • Equipment and Personal Property – If the landlord stores equipment on the property in order to maintain it, these items would be covered under equipment and personal property. Examples of covered equipment could be leaf blowers, lawnmowers and various other tools.

What Landlord Insurance Does Not Cover

  • Landlord Property Not Used to Maintain the Rental – If the landlord has personal property like clothes, electronics and other items that are not used to maintain the property, they are typically not covered under a landlord insurance policy.
  • The Tenant’s Property – The tenant’s personal property is not covered under a landlord policy. This includes anything the tenant brings to the property, including clothes, dishes, furniture and electronics. In order for a tenant’s personal belongings to be covered, they must have and maintain a Renter’s Insurance Policy. As a landlord, you can leave the purchase of renter’s insurance up to your tenant, or you can require it in your lease as a condition of renting the property.
  • Flooding and Earthquake Damage – Flooding due to severe storms, like hurricanes and tropical storms, and earthquake damage is not covered under a landlord insurance policy. To get coverage for these types of weather events, you’d have to purchase flood insurance and earthquake insurance.
  • Maintenance and Normal Wear and Tear – Maintenance costs and normal wear and tear by tenants are not covered under landlord insurance. Landlord insurance also does not typically help pay for damage caused by lack of maintenance.

Additional Insurance Policies

Getting landlord insurance for your rental property is a good start when it comes to financially protecting yourself against damage caused by certain events. However, it may not fully protect you against all scenarios that could be covered. Additional insurance policies that our agents recommend include:

  • Vandalism – If someone vandalizes your property by spray-painting it or breaking a window, this type of coverage may help pay for the repairs.
  • Burglary – If someone breaks into your rental and steals something you use in order to maintain the property, like a lawnmower or leaf blower, this coverage would help pay for the replacement of the stolen items.
  • Under Construction – If you are renovating your rental and unable to rent it to a tenant, this type of coverage helps financially protect you against certain types of damage until you are able to rent your property.
  • Building Code Upgrades – If you have to repair your property due to damage, you may be subject to the new building codes. This type of insurance helps pay the additional costs associated with building code upgrades.
  • Fair Rental Value/ Loss of Income – If your property is damaged by a covered event and you are unable to rent it while repairs are being made, this type of coverage helps provide you with income for your rental.
