Florida Peninsula Insurance Company, a leading provider of comprehensive homeowner insurance services in the state, is proud to announce we will begin offering Dwelling Fire insurance, commonly referred to as a “landlord policy” starting October 2nd .
The Dwelling Fire policy is designed to provide coverage for homes not eligible for a standard home insurance policy, such as homes rented to others, as well as vacation homes and residential investment properties. Dwelling Fire policies are also available to those individuals living in a home which features an older roof or are looking for basic coverage at an affordable price.
What Sets a Landlord Policy Apart?
The Dwelling Fire policy has a lot in common with a standard homeowner’s insurance policy. For example, both offer broad protection for the home, and personal property contained within the home. Both are considered “open perils” policies, meaning the home is protected against a wide variety of perils – aside from a small list of exceptions contained within the policy, such as flood.
Unique features of the Dwelling Fire policy are its provisions for loss of rent and the ability to insure homes with older roofs. Should a nonowner-occupied property become uninhabitable due to a covered loss, the landlord policy will cover lost rental income. And, with Florida Peninsula’s Dwelling Fire policy, replacement cost coverage is available on both the dwelling and contents.
“We’re committed to providing policyholders with flexible, affordable solutions like the new DP-3 policy,” says Florida Peninsula President Clint Strauch. “This policy offers substantial coverage in hurricane-prone Florida at a competitive premium.”
A Win for Property Owners
With insurance costs soaring in the aftermath of Hurricane Ian, Florida homeowners are feeling the pinch. Florida Peninsula’s new DP-3 policy provides coverage for secondary homes, rental properties, and older homes, allowing owners to secure affordable insurance even for properties with roofs over 10 years old.
“During these challenging times, we are always looking for ways to offer additional coverage options to help Florida residents,” adds Strauch. “Our customizable Dwelling Fire product allows us to meet the needs of those struggling to find affordable home insurance.”
Who Will Benefit?
This policy is particularly beneficial to property owners who:
• Are holding onto a property they inherited or moved from before selling
• Own an investment or vacation home they rent out
• Have a home with an older roof
