Rental property, or landlord, insurance is an invaluable form of protection for landlords. It provides essential cover to assist in the event of accidental damage, malicious damage or theft caused by tenants, as well as natural disasters such as flooding and storms. With recent natural disasters occurring more frequently in Australia, it’s becoming increasingly important for landlords to safeguard their investment with comprehensive rental property insurance. Tenants can cause significant financial loss to a landlord if they don’t take proper care of the rental property. Landlords should have a rental agreement and bond in place that clearly outlines acceptable standards of repair and upkeep expected from tenants; however malicious or accidental damage cannot always be avoided. Having a good quality rental property insurance policy in place will provide financial assistance to repair or replace items that are damaged by a tenant when the bond isn't enough to return the property to its original state. Rental property insurance can also provide protection from natural disasters. With the number of extreme weather events, such as floods and storms, increasing in Australia, now more than ever it’s important for landlords to ensure their rental property is properly protected. Landlord insurance can provide cover for property damage or destruction caused by storms, flood, earthquakes and fire. It can also provide financial assistance with any consequential losses incurred due to damage of the rental property, such as lost rent income due to tenants being unable to occupy the premises while repairs are carried out. Ultimately, rental property insurance is one of the most essential form of protection for landlords who want to safeguard their investments, whether it be protecting your property against malicious or accidental damage by tenants or natural disasters such as floods and storms. It can provide you with appropriate financial support to repair or replace damaged items, as well as assistance with any rental income losses.
