Insurance companies offer renter's insurance which covers the person's personal property, such as furniture, clothing, appliances, jewelry, and so forth. The coverage for the house itself is the responsibility of the owner.

Can mortgage interest and insurance be deducted on a rental home even if someone doesn't own another home and is renting too?

If you own the home in question (the title is in your name), you can deduct mortgage interest.

It can be insured, but you need a different policy.

No. Be sure you only insure the dwelling and not the contents inside. You should ask your tenants to have renters insurance to cover their personal belongings. Your mortgage company will require that you have adequate coverage but is not concerned with personal belongings inside the home. As far as I know, the mortgage company has no say in who lives in the home.
