    Commonly asked questions about Landlord Insurance

    The cost of landlord insurance in Canada depends on a number of factors, such as the type of property you own, where it’s located, and how much coverage you want. However, landlord insurance will generally cost about 20% more than it would cost to insure the same property with homeowner’s insurance. This is because rental properties typically see more claims than owner-occupied homes.

    Definitely! Having a landlord insurance policy can protect you from financial losses from incidents including theft, weather damage, fire, loss of rental income, and unintentional tenant damage.

    While landlords are not legally required to have insurance, nearly all mortgage lenders will require it before issuing a mortgage. Even if you don’t need a mortgage, it’s still a smart idea to keep yourself financially protected.

    Yes, your landlord insurance can cover loss of rental income if something should happen to your property and it becomes unlivable. Having the proper insurance coverage will either compensate you for lost rental income until your tenants can move back in again, or for the maximum amount that your policy covers you for.

    Yes and no. Your landlord insurance will help cover the cost of any unintentional damage, such as an accidental fire. And if the fire causes so much damage that your tenants have to move out while repairs are being done, your policy can help cover that lost income. However, your policy doesn’t include vandalism, which includes any intentional damage caused by your tenant.
