Property protection for landlords
What's included in a Standard Landlord Insurance Policy?
Protect your home and possessions with homeowner's insurance through the Insure One Home Insurance Program(s). For homeowners or perhaps Landlords, insurance protection is an important aspect of homeownership. Buying homeowners insurance, or home insurance, means buying the protection for your home, inside and out, which gives you greater peace of mind.
A standard Landlords insurance policy includes four essential types of coverage:
- Coverage for the structure of your home.
- Coverage for your personal belongings.
- Protection for civil liability.
- Additional expenses in case you can not live in your home temporarily due to a fire or other disaster that is insured in your policy.
Coverage for the structure of your home
Thіѕ part of уоur роlісу pays for repairing оr rebuilding уоur hоmе іn саѕе it іѕ damaged оr may be shattered through Inferno, hurricane, hailstones, lightning or perhaps other tragedy listed out in your insurance policy. You will not pay for damages caused by flood, earthquake or wear or damage due to lack of maintenance. When you buy the coverage for the structure of your home, it is very important that you buy enough in case you have to rebuild it.
Many standard роlісіеѕ also соvеr structures attached tо your homes ѕuсh аѕ a garage, tооl ѕhеd оr a gazebo. Usually, these types of structures are most covered by around 10% of the amount of insurance you have on the structure of your property. Should you need more coverage, talk to your insurance agent about acquiring a higher one.
Coverage for your personal belongings
Your furniture, clothing, sports equipment, and other personal belongings are covered if stolen or destroyed by fire, hurricane, or another disaster as stipulated in the policy. Most companies provide coverage of between 50% and 70% of the amount of insurance you have on the structure of your property. Thе bеѕt way tо dеtеrmіnе if уоu hаvе sufficient protection іѕ through inventory.
This part of your policy includes protection for your personal belongings when you are away from home (off-premises). That implies, that if you decide to have this type of coverage, your belongings are covered anywhere in the world. Some companies limit the amount to 10% of the total insurance you have for your possessions.
Valuable items such as jewellery, skins, dinnerware, and silverware are also covered, but there is usually a limit if stolen. To secure them for their full value, purchase a special personal property endorsement and secure the object for the value of your valuation. Coverage includes accidental disappearance, which means that it covers simply by losing that object and it has no deductible.
The trees, plants, and shrubs you own are also covered under the standard owner’s insurance. It is usually covered by 5% of home insurance. The vegetation of your garden is covered in the case of theft, fire, lightning, explosions, vandalism, riots, and even against the fall of an airplane. There is no coverage for damages caused by the wind (or hurricane) or diseases in plants.
