DO I NEED PROPERTY INSURANCE?
It is not a legal requirement but is seen as a top priority for property owners. Also, it is often set out as a condition by banks who may lend money against it (i.e a property with a mortgage). Despite this, If you are a Landlord, for instance, it is your responsibility to protect your property, not your tenants’. It is important to purchase a policy so that you can protect yours from fire, theft and damage caused to it by water, natural events such as storms and vandalism.
A property is often one of the largest assets a person or business may own. Meaning it can be costly to repair should anything happen to it. Most damage is out of your control, so it is therefore highly recommended that you take out insurance to avoid large, unexpected costs and protect your asset.
