High Risk Property Insurance
Insuring a High Risk Property
What makes a property ‘high risk’? Although it sounds intimidating the reasons behind it may be less frightening and obtaining insurance for a high risk property isn’t as difficult as you would think.
What makes a home ‘high risk’?
For the physical house the rating could be due to some of the following:
- The property is currently vacant
- The property is a rental property (House, Condo or Cottage)
- The age of the property
- The property has knob-and-tube wiring
Another situation may include a rental property that has an absentee landlord. Some insurance companies have a maximum allowable distance between a landlord and the property that, if exceeded, may result in a quote decline or non-renewal of policy.
Other High Risk Factors
It’s not just the property that can be deemed a high risk. Homeowners who have poor claims history or no previous insurance history can also be deemed a higher risk to insure. This doesn’t mean you have no options as there are companies out there who specialize in high risk property.
