2. Ensure your space qualifies as a rental. If you’re unsure about whether your situation is fully considered “renting,” contact your insurance provider. Different insurance companies have different rules for what qualifies as a rental, such as whether the person living there is a family member, whether the space has a separate entrance and how the space is attached to the main structure. Making sure you’re aligned to your insurance provider’s definition is key to choosing the right coverages.
3. Stay protected with Dwelling Fire insurance. If you are renting out your property for any length of time, you will need landlord insurance. Most landlord polices come standard with liability insurance, property damage and loss of income coverage, which reimburses you for rent lost as a result of the unit becoming uninhabitable. You can also take out additional coverages, such as flood insurance, to further protect your property.
