What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You

Re: Short term rental of your home
The rental of your home for a weekend, a week, a month or more may void some of the coverages afforded by your homeowner’s policy. For example:
  • Theft of personal property may be excluded. 
  • Bodily injury and/or property damage that occurs during a short term rental could result in a denied claim.
  • Tenant use of recreational vechicles, boats and/or automobiles that result in a claim against you may be denied coverage.

Contact the Tooher-Ferraris Insurance Group and one of our insurance counselors will review your current insurance to make sure that you are properly covered as well as design an insurance program that will improve your coverage and reduce your cost.
