If you have an investment property or are looking to buy one, it’s a good idea to find out more about home insurance designed specifically for landlords and investors.

While it makes sense to protect your investment against loss or damage, it’s also important to consider covering some of the special risks that investment properties may face.

How is landlord insurance different?

Like regular home insurance, landlord insurance provides protection against damage to your property from unexpected events such as theft, flood, fire and storm.

But this type of insurance also offers additional protection unique to landlords, such as loss of rent when your tenant can’t live in the home due to extensive damage caused by an insured event.

Is landlord insurance right for you?

Landlord insurance can help give you greater protection for your rental property and income than standard home insurance.
