How Property Owners and Landlords Can "Get Covered"

With more tenants working from home, there is an increased risk for damage to rental properties. For example, we’ve noticed an upward trend in fire damages caused by cooking and smoking. When these incidents occur, sometimes the property owner has to bear the financial responsibility for the damages. This is due to the fact that some tenants let their liability coverage lapse, or worse, their policy was never in force to begin with. These situations can lead to increased insurance costs and reflect poorly on property managers.
To solve this problem, Rockingham Insurance has partnered with Get Covered, which provides a master liability program for property owners and landlords to guarantee they are covered for unavoidable tenant negligence and are protected against exposures unseen on rental applications.
“The Get Covered program offers multiple master liability programs that can guarantee coverage for not only rental property owners but also coverages for their tenants’ personal property,” said Jessica Jones, Director of Commercial Underwriting at Rockingham Insurance.
Jones says the program also has an option that allows tenants to select their own tenant policy carrier and includes compliance tracking and automatic enrollment of tenants in a master policy should the policy lapse or be canceled. If the dwelling is already covered with a policy from Rockingham Insurance, it’s easy for tenants to Get Covered.
