What type of liability insurance can you get to lease a commercial building for personal non-business use or is an umbrella policy from your homeowners liability insurance enough for the landlord?
Umbrella policies are often written as "following form" which means it only provides coverage if your primary (i.e. homeowners policy) provides coverage. Ask your insurance agent if you need to add the new location to the liability section of your homeowner's policy. You may also need "fire legal coverage" which can pay the landlord if you accidentally cause fire damage to the leased building.

If it's a case like where the owners dog bit someone, they will be reluctant to reveal this information. When that happens, you best bet is to hire a private investigator who… has access to the insurance industry insurance databases.
Answer well your liablites in general...depends....you can be a 'co signer' and NOT an owner ( i know this because i did this with our kids...on purpose) if you …are a co owner you have the same liablity as the owner, (ins...if accident occurs and no insurance you are held equal with owner)....if you are a co signer and NOT a co owner you liablity begins and ends with the financial responsiblity of the note...(they don't pay then bank/company comes to you to pay the note/lease)....
Try personal trainer insurance through IDEA. They have the cheapest in the industry.

Is this seems like an incomplete question. Homeowners policies typically have personal liability on them.
Umbrella & excess provides increased limits of liability at a greatly reduced premium as compared to the general liablity policy. The theory is that the GL policy is the "work…ing layer" for most claims, while the umbrella pays for the more severe (but less frequent) types of claims. The higher limits may be needed if the association is sued. Examples: * A person slipped and fell in the community's park. * Ice formed on the private road owned by the community, causing an auto accident. * A board member was alleged to have discriminated against a community resident. * and whatever else people sue for Note that while none of the above lawsuits are likely, and even so, have little or no merit, they can deplete a HOA's budget with the lawyer bills necessary to defend them. A special assessment against all of the homeowners would be inevitable, which could result in hardship and possibly assessment liens against homeowners in the association.
Commercial GL covers your business for damages alledged by a third party including bodily injury and property damage. When you start a company, you should purchase GL insu…rance when you have any of the following : Sales, assets, employees, a physical location.
Umbrella policies set on top of personal liability insurance policies. Normally your homeowners policy provides this type of coverage . the umbrella policy should follow the c…overage of the personal liability . It may or may not provide coverage for volunteer positions as policies are different from state to state and company to company. You need to consult your personal agent to review you current poliicy to make sure your policy provides the coverage that you are asking about
Can a homeowner get a third party liability insurance covering ONLY visitors who might have an accident while on the premises (not the house itself and its furnishings and… belongings) Thank you Elie
So does that mean you cannot get an umbrella liability policy without having some primary coverage first? I am a landlord. Let's say I am not concerned about property dama…ge or fire loss, just liability. Is there any type of insurance I can buy just for liability? _____________________________________________________________________________________________ In answer to your question, by its very nature, there has to be underlying coverage in order to have an unbrella policy. Otherwise, there is nothing for the umbrella to supplement. Different insurance companies have different underwriting requirements as to the amount of underlying coverage you much have to get an umbrella of a stated amount. Since you are a landlord, and presumably want coverage on the rental property, you may want to look into a Commercial General Liability insurance policy. It is a broad form of policy that covers an array of risks. Only a licensed insurance agent can advise you on what is best for your needs. However, since it is rental property, I do not understand why you would not want insurance on the property itself, such as fire insurance, unless the property is uninsurable. --Luke Brown
I have never heard of this and don't believe that it exists. I believe that if you are interested in liability only then a premises liability policy is what you want. A "homeo…wners" policy is a packaged policy with property, liability, medical payments to others, and many other coverages put together for owner occupied homes only. There are several different "forms" of homeowners policies such as: HO-3 is the typical owner occupied replacement cost policy; HO-4 is for apartment or those renting a home; HO-6 is for condominium owners; HO-1, HO-8, HO-10 are owner occupied actual cash value policies. There are also many many endorsements available to add or delete certain coverages from these forms.
The liability section of your homeowners insurance covers items that you are legally obligated to pay for injuries to other persons due to your negligence. It will also pay fo…r legal fees to defend you if you are sued for such items.
It covers your negligent actions anywhere in the world as well if someone sues you your laibility coverage will kick in and they will defend you. There are some other coverage…s in there as well but would need to see policy as all are different
Personal liability insurance provides additional coverage to other insurance policies. Without personal liability insurance, any thing that one's home or car insurance could n…ot cover, one would have to pay out of pocket. Personal liability insurance will cover those fines.
Commercial liability umbrella insurance has many benefits to the company. The liability umbrella insurance is pretty inexpensive compared to other coverage policies. It also p…rovides better protection and coverage.
