A personal liability, or umbrella, policy pays liability limits above those you can get on your homeowners or other basic liability policy. If you are thinking of buying a personal liability policy, begin by finding out the maximum amount of personal liability your homeowners policy provides. Make sure you coordinate the liability limits so that the umbrella policy covers any liability claim in excess of the amount your basic policy will pay, up to the maximum limits of the policy.
Personal umbrella insurance is a personal liability policy that kicks after your other insurances have been exhausted. If you are sued for $1 million for a car accident and your auto insurance will only pay up to $300k, your personal umbrella policy will pay the remaining sum (assuming your umbrella policy is large enough).

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 damage 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.
