Landlord or Dwelling Fire Insurance

Protecting your rental property.

Compare Insurance Quotes From Multiple Companies

An important part of renting your property.

There’s a lot that goes hand-in-hand with an investment property...sometimes more than you’d expect. From repairs to difficult tenants, it’s easy to get overwhelmed. AIS would like to help assure you’ve got your most important bases covered. With the right coverage for your rental property, you’re protected from damages to your property and even the income you might lose as a result of a claim.

We know that owning a rental is a large investment of money and time, so any loss is a large one. The most important thing to know about insurance on your rental property is that it is often quite different from the coverage of your primary home.

Coverages Available

There are numerous coverages offered to protect you and your tenant-occupied investment, such as:
 

    • Replacement cost for the structure of your rental property

    • Damage to other structures such as a garage or a shed

    • Owners, Landlords and Tenants Liability (OL&T) -- Liability which covers the owner/landlord of a tenant occupied building.  The principal differences between this coverage and Comprehensive Personal Liability (CPL) is that the OL&T has no off premises coverage except as it relates to use of the building and that OL&T covers liability losses filed by the tenant.

    • Fair Rental Value --  This coverage protects against a loss of rental income if your property is deemed unlivable due to a covered loss

    • Inflation Guard – This is an optional (some carriers mandatory) provision that increases the property coverage by a specified percentage (annually, quarterly, etc.).  With inflation, this keeps your coverage current to prevent being under-insured when a loss occurs.
