Real Estate Insurance
If you have a real estate-related business, then you should be thinking about realty insurance since it can protect you from some of the pitfalls that can occur if you own or rent real estate. These problems can include property damage that translates into a loss of rental income.
Specifically, realty insurance covers your property and assets against bodily injuries, property damage and legal action. Since you no doubt want to focus on doing what you do best, it pays to invest in real estate insurance to remove the worry and the headaches if there is ever a problem.
Whether you deal with office buildings, industrial buildings, retail buildings, residential buildings or even vacant property, realty insurance can protect your business interests by ensuring that you can deal with situations that would otherwise be a large, and expensive, undertaking.
Of course, there are some cases where realty insurance, while advisable, is not required. Some mortgage lenders will, should you own the property free and clear, leave it up to you to decide if you will get realty insurance. In many cases, however, you will have to get realty insurance as a condition to obtaining a mortgage.
