As a landlord, imagine your rentable property being involved in the fringe space of a terrorist attack. Think about a 3am wake up call to let you know the building you manage has just been struck by debris from the terrorist attack happening right next door. The thought of such an event is enough to make most landlords shudder with fear and anxiety. There is one thing which will help the property which you manage bounce back in a short amount of time. Landlord insurance will not only enable the property to be back on its feet soon after a crisis, but limit the amount of time the property is uninhabitable.

The job of a landlord is to protect the investment and maintain profitability of the property. These two go hand in hand. Protecting the viability of the property will lead to continued profitability of the property. A landlord insurance policy is the most effective way to protect the property and its contents. Through terrorist attack of the neighboring building to leaky pipes which cause a sizable amount of damage, a landlord insurance policy is an affordable, accessible, simple way to protect the investment.

A common mistake made by a landlord is not purchasing enough insurance protection for the property. The result of this is falling behind financially at the first instance when an insurance claim needs to be made. A landlord insurance policy makes falling behind difficult due to the response time the insurance company will have to an incident which requires immediate attention.

In the event a landlord does not carry cover suitable to meet the needs of the unfortunate occurrence, a breakdown similar to a deck of playing cards takes place. First, the damage does not receive immediate attention. Second, due to the initial damage not receiving immediate attention, a secondary problem develops in relation to the first problem. Third, the tenants wind up not being able to inhabit the space for an unknown amount of time. Then the tenants start thinking about possibly moving to a new location to not have to deal with this type of situation again, which subsequently caused them to lose some business.

Not carrying strong landlord insurance can be much more costly than paying each month for a good policy. It can result in losing tenants, developing a bad reputation in the local area, and losing trust in tenants which are considering moving into the property. Landlord insurance is a necessity if you see the property meeting its full potential now, and into the future.
