Rental property is a huge investment that needs regular maintenance, care, and the right insurance to protect it from damage. But how do you protect your property? What kind of insurance do you need?
Renters aren't usually responsible when a big appliance breaks, someone gets hurt on the property (even if it's not the tenant's fault), a forest fire damages or destroys your home, or burglars just take everything. You'd be left holding the bag for these and other bad things that people or nature did.
The Difference Between Landlord and Homeowners Insurance
Your primary residence, the place you spend most of your time, should be protected by homeowners insurance. However, landlord insurance is essential because it protects against risks to the business that are not covered by this policy.
Landlord insurance covers rental properties and your house if you want to have a business of renting out your property, while homeowners insurance covers your primary residence.
What's in the Landlord Insurance?
The Bottom Line
Commercial aspects of renting out your home should be covered by landlord insurance. One investment property could help you supplement your income. Just like investments, you need to protect your asset, and by this, you'll need landlord insurance.
