What is landlord insurance?

Landlord insurance, sometimes referred to as investment property insurance or rental insurance, helps protect your rental properties in the case of a covered loss. In general, landlord insurance helps cover the structure(s) and property used for maintenance.

What does landlord insurance cover?

  • Your property itself
  • Damage or injury that occurs on your rental property
  • Loss of rent

Is landlord insurance the same as home insurance?

No, landlord insurance and home insurance are different. Landlord insurance is specifically designed for the needs of someone who is renting a property long-term. In addition to protecting the “dwelling” (or structure) of a property, it also covers loss of rent, accidental damage caused by tenants, and other situations when the landlord may be held liable for damages or injury.

How much is landlord insurance?

With Liberty Mutual, the cost of your landlord insurance is customizable, so you only pay for what you need. Things that will typically impact the cost of landlord insurance include

  • The location and surrounding environment
  • The type of weather your state experiences
  • The age of the building and systems
  • Prior claims

Generally, the less risk you have the lower your price may be. It all depends on your needs. Keep in mind that you can lower the cost of your premium by increasing your deductible.

Does landlord insurance cover tenant damage?

If the damage is caused accidentally, the landlord may be covered. For example, if a tenant has a fire in their kitchen, the property would likely be covered.

Consider requiring your tenants to have renters insurance. Policies are affordable and easy to get online.

Understand your landlord coverage options

Real life example
Your property suffers a total loss from damage. This coverage will take care of repairs.
Premises Liability Coverage3
A maintenance worker slips and injures himself on your property. You'll be covered for any legal action the person may take against you.
A bad hail storm causes damage to the windows of your rental property. This will help you get them repaired.
Fair Rental Value4
One of your units suffers fire damage and you're unable to rent it. This will cover the lost rent while repairs take place.
Inflation Protection3
A rise in inflation causes contracting repair costs to also rise. This keeps pace with inflation, so you're covered for a total loss.
