Vacant property insurance products are designed to provide protection from damage or complete loss of a structure that is uninhabited.
Typical property insurance products will not cover fire, vandalism, liability or other claims on properties that are vacant.
For example, if you have a seasonal business or simply leave it for a few months, and there is a fire, an unoccupied and vacant insurance policy would provide coverage where your standard insurance policy wouldn’t.
There are a few reasons why your property may be seen as vacant:
Rental Property- If you own rental property, there will be times in which your property is between inhabiting residents.
Renovations Performed- You may also decide to perform renovations on a property you own. This would then cause it to be classified as vacant.
Selling or Relocating Office Spaces- Whether you are renting or own your property, if you leave one property to move into another, there will be a period of time when the one is seen as vacant.
