California Landlord Insurance (Dwelling)

California landlord insurance is a policy for a homeowner who rents out a home they own. This type of insurance typically includes two different types of coverage liability and property protection. Both coverages are designed to help protect you, the landlord, from financial losses.

California Landlord Property Protection

The property protection in a California landlord insurance policy typically helps cover physical property related to the home you’re renting out. This may include the dwelling itself and equipment you keep on site to help maintain it. Coverage generally includes:

  • Dwelling- This coverage is designed to pay to repair your rented home, condo or apartment if it’s damaged by fire, lightning, wind, hail or other covered losses.
  • Personal Property Used To Maintain Property  –  a lawnmower, hedge trimmer or snow blower onsite to maintain your rental property, California landlord insurance may help cover this equipment if it’s damaged. However, if you leave your personal items  like stereo , tv or DVD player at the home you rent out, it likely won’t be covered under your California landlord policy
  • Other structures –  Similar to homeowner’s policy  this part of your policy helps pay to repair detached structures on your rental property, such as  garage or fence, if they’re damaged by a covered loss.

Remember the deductible! Coverages mentioned  are subject to the  stated in your California landlord policy. Your deductible is the amount you’ll pay for a covered loss before your landlord insurance is activated . A policy limit is the maximum amount your California Landlord insurnace policy will pay after a covered loss. Each coverage typically has its own, separate deductible and limit. You may be able to set your own deductible and limit amounts for these coverages.
