Rental Property Insurance in BC
Whether you own a rented condo or a rented dwelling, your real-estate investment is important. That’s why we take the time, up front, to ensure you have enough coverage to protect this investment. Our risk and values assessment process is a key step in determining your needs. We help rental property owners understand the unique coverages available on both rented dwelling insurance policies and rented condo insurance policies. For example, not having enough loss of rental income coverage, can leave a property owner in a tough financial situation, if they are unable to rent the property due to an insured loss.
At Westland Insurance Group, we know that not all insurance policies are created equal. See how we stack up against our competitors’ standard rental property insurance policies.
It is also important to encourage your tenants to purchase their own tenant insurance policy. A tenant insurance policy not only protects the renter’s personal property but also includes personal liability coverage.
