Contents or belongings insurance is a specific amount to replace furniture, appliances, lawnmower, etc. Rental property insurance does not always automatically include contents. However, it can be added upon request.
If the building is damaged by fire, it could all be gone instantly. The dilemma arises when your adjuster asks you to provide a list of lost or damaged items when filing a claim. Do what you can to keep a record of your belongings by taking a picture of your closet or a video of you walking through each room. For special items that can’t easily be replaced, ensure you have a more specific record of it for your adjuster, as they will likely offer a cash settlement if no replacement can be acquired. Pictures and receipts of purchases are the ideal way to ensure you are adequately compensated in the event of a loss.
Renting a property can be a great idea, but it’s important to be protected if your tenant vandalizes it. Rental property insurance can help you cover your investment, and it can also help you if your tenant is caught vandalizing your property. Vandalism by tenant coverage endorsement protects against intentional physical damage to Insured property. However, it is not available with all insurers. Ask your broker about which companies offer this coverage.
Short Term Coverage
Your insurance can vary depending on the rental agreements between you and your tenant. If you are operating a short-term rental similar to Airbnb, ensure you disclose this to your broker, as long-term vs short-term rental policies are different.
Ask your broker about the following coverages available with each insurer to help you find the best policy for you:
- Theft and attempted theft caused by tenants and their guests
- Damage caused by tenant vandalism
- Theft of, or damage to, your tenant’s property
- Fair rental value
To be liable mean simply that you are found to be legally responsible. If you are liable for injury to someone or found responsible for damage to another’s property, you can be sued for damages. No one likes to imagine being sued. But accidents happen, and if one does occur and you’re deemed negligent, you could find yourself with a hefty settlement. This type of insurance is essential for revenue property owners because it helps protect them from financial losses that may occur due to a lawsuit. Liability automatically comes with your property insurance, but reviewing your coverage with an advisor to ensure you’re appropriately protected is essential.
While Canada may not be known for outrageous personal liability settlements, the cost of these claims is rising. Ten years ago, a five-million-dollar case may have been rare, but not so much anymore. With inflation on the rise, the compensatory awards awarded to plaintiffs are also increasing. Keep in mind no lawsuit is a quick fix. Some take years for the court to settle, adding to the bottom line.
