Understanding Landlord Insurance - do I really need it?

Whether you are operating a property management empire or renting out a single house for extra income, you will want to know more about protecting your assets.

Here we answer the questions you may have about landlord insurance and help you understand whether or not you really need it. 

What is landlord insurance?

From nightmare tenants to missed payments, landlord insurance covers rental owners for the wide range of unpredictable factors you may face. It provides protection for your earnings and material assets.

Landlord insurance is designed to protect the rental property owners from financial losses connected to their rental. This includes building insurance which covers property damage and can be extended to cover equipment breakdown, landlord’s contents and even cover for losses of rent.

A Landlord insurance policy can cover you for the risk of liabilities as a property owner. 

Liability insurance for landlords is a type of public liability insurance. It covers you in the case of a member of the public (including tenants) injuring themselves on your property or damage caused to property belonging to someone else.

So you know what landlord insurance is, but do you need it?


Is landlord insurance mandatory?

While it may not be required by law, your mortgage lender may require that you have landlord insurance. 

It could also be true that your tenancy agreement requires financial responsibilities from you, which puts your financial future at risk without the cover provided by landlord insurance.
