Insurance Coverage for Vacation Rentals
Thanks to the explosion of platforms like Airbnb and HomeAway, property owners have found new ways to make money, but it’s also raising important questions about the appropriate insurance coverage needed to protect these investments.
Is It Covered? – Dog & Animal Limitations
While your investor client’s Property Coverage protects damage that happens to their investment property, (i.e. the physical building), your client’s Liability Coverage protects their financial well-being associated with that property (i.e. if their negligence at that property were to harm someone else). Property policies intended for investment properties usually exclude Wear-and-Tear due to animal nesting or infestation, while General Liability policies for their property will often have limitations on the coverage offered for dogs and other animals, such as injuries due to dog bites.
