in general yes but you wouldn't be receiving the same type of policy if the owner is not living there (example you wouldn't need personal property coverage since your property would be at your primary residence).

It is possible that you have to be occupying the house to be covered by insurance. They see it as unprotected by the owner and anything could happen to it. I cant possibly be the first person to try and insure a property Im not occupying. Homeowners insurance covers your home, and a house you are renting to someone else is not your home. It can be insured, but you need a different policy.

Do you have to pay homeowners insurance if you are renting?

No. You don't own the home, the owner pays that. You can get renters insurance if you want. Adding on to that, homeowners insurance only covers the structure, not the contents. So while the owner will get paid for any damage to their building, anything you lose to a fire, flood, etc. is not covered in most cases. If you have a lot of valauble belongings it's always a good idea to have renters insurance. Also, most companies offer discounts for having renters insurance and auto insurance with the same company.

It depends. If it was your basketball hoop that fell on someone else's car, yes.

If it's your vehicle on your property or even if you're renting the property, sorry. you're out of luck.
