Have you been thinking about renting out your vacation home or lake cottage? Since your family only uses it a few months out of the year, making money on the property through rentals sounds pretty good for the other months, right? Companies like VRBO, AirBnB and HomeAway allow you, the homeowner, to rent your home to a tenant for as for as long or short of a term as you’d like, all while making a pretty penny!
When you rent, it is easy to believe that your landlord is responsible for any trouble that might come your way while you are in your apartment or house. While many leases state that the landlord handles repairing standard maintenance issues, many types of damage to your personal property are not covered.
Does your property insurance
cover all your stuff? You probably hope so, right? Well wouldn’t it be better to know so. Many people think their home insurance
or renters insurance
covers the full cost of all of their “stuff.” However most policies cover your house and most of its contents, but usually contain limits on certain items, and certain types of loss. Be sure that your coverage protects all of your assets in Lafayette, Indiana.
