A rental property could be a great investment, however, it can come with some challenges and dramas. That’s why it’s important to choose the right insurance policy to protect your property.
Landlord insurance is designed to cover landlords for things like damage caused by tenants, loss of rental income and landlord liability. There are a number of landlord insurance options and these policies vary greatly, some policies are supposed to be an addition to your home and contents insurance, while others are more comprehensive and could replace the need for general home and contents insurance.
DELIBERATE DAMAGE OR THEFT BY TENANTS
If your tenants or their guests intentionally damage or steal from your property, landlord insurance normally covers the costs up to certain sum.
LOSS OF RENT
Damage caused by accident to the property could be extreme. If your rental is accidentally damaged, it is likely that your property can’t be rentable for a period, so you may lose some rental income. Landlord insurance can cover loss of rent for accidental damage.
In addition, if your tenants leave without giving you the required notice, or you have to evict tenants, landlord insurance can also cover the costs up to a certain amount.
DECONTAMINATION AND REPAIR
If your tenants use illegal drugs, your property may require decontamination. Some landlord insurance policies cover you for the costs of discovering the contamination and repairing the physical damage to your rental property.
