Insurance For Rented PropertiesWednesday, February 29, 2012 14:55
The insurance that you get for renting out properties is different from the kind of insurance you would get just for an actual home. What most landlords tend to do is go online and through comparison sites they get their insurance this way. Why? Well by choosing to get it online you can actually save yourself quite a big of money and you will also have a much better choice in terms of the comapny that you choose to go for and this can have a big effect both on the price and also any added benefits that are included too.
Your rented insurance will come in three parts usually. First off you need to have insurance that will cover the actual building in terms of its structure and also its interior and exterior. This can commonly be mistaken for thinking that it also covers contents; well it does not. Basically the building insurance is there for the actual building itself not what is inside it although it does often extend to the likes of doors and door locks in the case of break ins. So in addition to this you will need a contents insurance and this is beneficial to both yourself and the person who will be renting.
If you furnish the placeout then any furnishing that you have put into the property will be insured against any damage or even theft and also the personal possessions of the tenants will be insured as well. Finally you will need a rent guarantee clause; basically this protects you against a tenant failing to pay rent over a period of time and ensures that you will not lose out on any money and rent that is owed to you for this time period as it can be claimed on insurance.
