Home Insurance For the Dangers of Short-Term Home Rentals

Hi Folks,

   How is your first week of the New Year, so far? It's going well, I hope !

   I was recently interviewed for a very interesting story on short-term home rentals, with the angle of the story on some dangers and issues that can arise from these arrangements. The story, titled, "Dangers of short-term home rentals", was written by Marcie Geffner for Insurance.com, and thus, the angle also focuses on Home Insurance to help mitigate these "dangers".

   Listed below are the points/comments that I contributed for this particular story:

"Some losses are accidental. Others are deliberate and potentially more difficult for homeowners to protect against, notes Robert Eisenstein, founder and CEO of HomeRun Homes, which operates a rent-to-own property website at Lease2Buy.com."

"You want to make sure you don't have any non-owner-occupied clauses or anything that states (the policy is void) over 14 days where it's not owner-occupied, for example," Eisenstein says.

Consider an umbrella policy. Liability should be a concern as well as theft or property damage, Eisenstein adds. An umbrella policy can offer additional coverage for medical expenses if a renter or a renter's guest trips and falls or suffers another type of injury on the property. "It's definitely a concern," he says.

   For the readers of our Blog, Geffner's story is an excellent piece that touches upon some very important concerns that need to be addressed when working on a Rental deal or on a Rent to Own deal. To read the full story, you can check out Geffner's article Here.

Have a Great Week, and Happy Rent-to-Owning !
