Rental Protection is a lease insurance program that offers landlords up to $5,000 of coverage for certain types of losses arising out of renter default, and physical damage to units caused by renters. Renter default includes unpaid rent. Physical damage includes damage to the unit caused by the renter, or a guest, and excess cleaning and trash removal above normal wear and tear and turn costs. Both “renter default” and “physical damage” are further defined in the policy. See more detail in the coverage summary.
Coverage for any claim will depend on the specific obligations, conditions, and exclusions in the policy. Please read your policy carefully. If you have questions, contact Customer Support to speak with a licensed agent.
Rental Protection is lease insurance for landlords offered through Zillow Insurance Services, LLC (“ZIS”), a licensed insurance producer (AZ license no. 3001395092, CO license no. 721581, and NC license no. 3001614207). ZIS will refer landlords that express an interest in Rental Protection to LeaseLock Insurance Services, Inc. (“LeaseLock”), a licensed third party agent and surplus lines broker, to consider securing for their benefit such coverage, if available. Rental Protection is sold and administered by LeaseLock on behalf of one or more insurance companies. Requested Rental Protection coverage may not be available in the admitted market in your state. Such insurance companies may not be subject to your state’s insurance regulations and protections. Rental Protection may not be protected under your state’s guaranty act with respect to any right of recovery for the obligation of an insolvent insurer. Availability of Rental Protection may be subject to surplus lines exportability in your state.
ZIS may receive a fee or commission in connection with the sale of Rental Protection but is not appointed to act on behalf of any insurance company. Rental Protection is not available in all states. If you would like information about other insurance coverage options, you should consult another insurance producer.
