What type of insurance is recommended for landlords?

Landlords need a special type of insurance. When you live in the same property as your tenant, you need "unit rented to others" coverage. When you are renting out a second home, you need to let your insurance company know. Homeowner's insurance is considered a DP-1 policy, which will pay the depreciated value of something, and DP-3 which will pay the replacement value of something, at today's values.

Can you get home insurance on a home you are renting?

You can buy insurance on whether or not it will rain tomorrow. This is just to show that you can insure anything. Now for your question. I'm not sure I completely understand it. You cannot insure something that you don't own so if you mean can you insure a home that you are paying rent to live in then no. You can purchase a homeowners policy to insure your contents inside the home as well as your liability should you be sued by someone hurt on the property. This would be an HO-4 policy form. If you are asking if you can insure a home you are renting to someone else for them to live in then the answer is also yes. You would need a dwelling fire policy that stipulates it is tenant occupied which can be a DP-1, DP-2, or DP-3 depending on the condition of the property and the coverage you desire. You will also want to make sure you endorse the policy to provide liability coverage as well and to cover any property inside the home that you own.

How does comprehensive policy differ from fire policy?

There is no such thing as a comprehensive homeowners policy. What you are probably thinking of is a HO policy or Homeowners policy. Their are 2 common policy's sold that are homeowners. One is an HO-3 and the other is an HO-5. These policy's provide a wide range of coverages compared to just a DP-1 or DP-3 policy. DP is a dwelling fire policy. This provides just very basic perils on a policy. Pretty much it just covers wind, fire, weather, and a few other basic things. Mark Owner of Denvers Insurance
