Landlord Insurance

Many people are now buying homes as a store of value due to the ongoing inflation and low interest rate environment.  If you are purchasing a home and then renting out your property, landlord insurance helps protect your home from fire, wind. lighting, vandalism, liability, water damage from broken pipe etc.  If there is an injury at the property you are renting, you may be held responsible instead of the tenant. This is why it’s important to let your insurance agent know the occupancy of the property.

The Safeco Landlord insurance policy will also offer protection from wrongful eviction claims if the tenant claims that you evicted them wrongfully.

Safeco is one of the top providers of landlord insurance in the U.S. and covers residential rentals up to four units. This includes single family homes, condo units, duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes.

This coverage protects you from damage to the dwelling and from certain types of liability unique to landlords such as wrongful eviction, wrongful entry, and invasion of privacy claims.
