Short-Term Rental Insurance in Raleigh & Garner, NC
If you regularly rent out your home or vacation property, you should consider obtaining short-term rental insurance.
Short-term rental insurance helps protect you and your home if you frequently rent out your property to guests for a short period of time (less than two months). Your homeowners insurance policy typically will not offer protection if you’re renting out your home, even if it’s just a room.
What Does Short-Term Rental Insurance Cover?
A short-term rental insurance policy helps protect your home and belongings from damage caused by your guests. Most insurance policies include the following:
- Dwelling coverage helps protect the structure of your home and other buildings on the property.
- Personal property coverage helps protect your personal belongings on the property, such as electronics and furniture.
- Personal liability coverage may help pay for medical bills if a guest is injured on your property or legal fees if they file a lawsuit against you.
- Loss of revenue coverage helps cover lost income if damage forces your property out of service while it is being repaired.
