A landlord whose life savings may be invested in his properties should consider taking out Let Property Insurance for his properties. Renting it out to tenants is putting his assets at risk so why not protect himself from that risk? Also the landlord won’t be able to check his property thoroughly because the occupants would be renting it so for his peace of mind he should protect himself by getting a Landlords Insurance or more popularly know as the home owner insurance.
What are covered under the homeowner insurance? There is the Building insurance which covers not only the building structure but also some permanent fixtures and fittings inside the house like kitchen/bathroom fittings and floorings. Aside from the Building insurance the landlord will also benefit from the Content Insurance which will cover temporary items lie carpets, furnitures, electronic gadgets, and more.
The landlord will also get protection from fire, flood, theft, earthquake, explosion, etc.
A good landlord will know the importance of keeping his property well maintained. Your tenants are entitled by law to have a safe and habitable environment. A well kept property will ensure that a rent cheque will come in every month for you. So eliminate those headaches and let the insurance take care of it for you.
