Texas Landlord Insurance Information

The type of insurance policy your rental property requires depends on several factors. It can be based on the insurance provider and the duration of time you rent out your property in Texas.

Typically, your provider will want to see that your property is occupied long-term, with at least 12-month leases being put in place. That’s not say that coverage isn’t available for Texas landlords who deal primarily with short-term rental properties. It will just usually mean that you’ll pay a bigger premium every month due to the nature of your rental property’s volatility. 

Some other factors that can affect the rate you pay on landlord insurance are:

  •  Location of Your Property(s)
  • Purchase Date of the Property
  • Upgrades of Improvements You’ve Added to the Property
  • Your History of Claims
  • Alarm System on the Property and more.

What isn’t covered by Texas landlord insurance?

Maintenance repairs are not covered by your landlord insurance. If the tenant calls you and claims your dishwasher is broken your provider will not cover the cost of repair or replacement for appliances such as this. 

Your Tenant’s personal property is not covered by your landlord policy. Ownership recommends that you require any and all tenants in your property to carry renters insurance to protect their belongings within your property.

Is Landlord Insurance a Requirement in Texas?

Texas law says you must show proof that you can pay for accidents that you cause. Most people do this by buying auto liability insurance. Liability insurance pays for the other driver’s repairs and medical bills. If you still owe money on your car, your lender will require you to have collision and comprehensive coverage to pay for damage to your car.
