Rental property ownership is on the rise Insuring investment or landlord rentals is very different from traditional homes too. The coverage is similar but the rating factors are very different. Insuring a rental is usually more expensive than insuring an owner-occupied home. Companies realize that tenants who live in a rental have little to lose and are less likely to take care of the home.
Any home that is owner-occupied is written as a regular homeowner’s policy. However, a home that is not owner-occupied is written as a landlord or dwelling policy. The difference is dependent on who lives in the home, not if you charge rent or not.
