Why do you need insurance in the Real Estate Industry?

A humble abode, a shoebox, or a mansion – most would agree there really is no place like home. And if you’re in the real estate industry, whether that’s as an agent, landlord, or a tenant, you know all too well just how much work happens behind the scenes in a home being sold or rented out. Therefore, before opening the door to new memories, it’s important to ensure you’ve also unlocked appropriate protection for your property or real estate agency in the form of adequate insurance.

FAQ

Frequently Asked Questions
Here are some questions commonly ask by Real Estate professionals.
Do real estate agents need insurance?
Insurance should be a key consideration for you regardless of the size and location of your business. You work in real estate because of your passion for property – but also to earn a living. Sometimes all it takes is one unhappy client, or a severe weather event to completely bring your business operations to a grinding halt, and insurance coverage can act as your safety net to help ensure you’re not forced to close your doors due to being inundated with unexpected costs.
What’s the difference between a home building policy and a landlord policy?
A traditional building insurance policy covers damage to property caused by a specified peril, such as storm; fire; and damage caused by theft or attempted theft. Landlord Insurance has been designed to cover property owners for risks faced by a landlord, such as rental default and public liability.
Should I get landlord insurance if I’m renting out a home?
In our opinion, if you’re renting out a property, Landlord Insurance is very important to take out. It will not only help cover some of the costs to repair the home if an insured event occurs, but can also reimburse you for loss of rental income if your property has to be vacant for a period of time while the repairs are being carried out.

Is Renter's Insurance the same as Contents Insurance?
Renter's Insurance is a similar type of insurance to the 'Contents' component of Home Contents insurance, which provides cover for belongings inside the home.

How do I work out how much to insure my contents for?
You’ll need to conduct a thorough inventory of your home and work out roughly how much everything is worth. Remember to calculate the value based on new-for-old replacement. You might find it easiest to do this one room at a time. For some categories like clothes, you may need to make a realistic guess as it would be hard to add up the individual value of each item.
