Rental Property Insurance
This Is A Summary Page
R ental property owners and managers have a responsibility to preserve their property, be a good neighbor, and to help protect tenants, their guests, and the public from economic loss or harm. Insuring property is not only important to protect assets but is likely required by lenders as well.
Accordingly, w e must evaluate our risks on a regular basis to help determine our potential property damage risks and the liability for injury or financial loss to others, then try to carry the appropriate insurance to deal with them.
Insurance companies continually evaluate their losses and exposure. Then they target the areas of the casualty business where they think they need to increase, or decrease business, to better balance their risk.
The Insurance Services Organization (ISO) developed standardized language for business and property policies that have been used by most insurance companies in most states since the mid 1970s.
Protecting Tenants from the Manager or Maintenance Employees
A tenant who gets hurt or has property stolen or damaged by an employee could sue the property owner for failing to use due diligence in employee screening or supervision.
A last note before you explore our additional insurance pages: When you select a company or agent, always consider their reputation for claims service along with their price.
