Rental Protection covers certain types of physical damage to the unit resulting from negligence, carelessness, accidents, or abuse caused by the renter, the renter’s pet(s), or a guest of the renter, as well as excess cleaning and excess trash removal. Physical damage includes damage to all physical structural property, fixtures, or appliances owned by the insured and located within or on the unit.
Rental Protection doesn’t cover:
- Normal wear-and-tear or turn costs
- Exterior damage (including common areas, landscaping, pools, etc.)
- Personal property (such as furniture and artwork included with a furnished unit)
- Damage covered by other insurance, including water or smoke damage.
The description above is for illustrative purposes only. Coverage for any claim will depend on the specific obligations, conditions, and exclusions in the policy.
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.
