Unoccupied Properties

Unoccupied Property Insurance


At The Insurance Octopus, our comprehensive landlords insurance policies are designed to allow you to add, remove, increase and decrease all areas of the policy. Our aim is to make the process of insuring your unoccupied properties as easy as possible and seek to design an insurance policy specific to your rental business.

As a landlord of an unoccupied property, making sure you have insurance in place while you are between tenants, renovating a property or redecorating is just as important as if your property has tenants. For peace of mind, make sure you have unoccupied property insurance in place, and know that your business is financially protected.

Remember: Reducing your premiums can sometimes be available by clearly stating the reasons for the property being vacant. Let us know how long you expect the property to be empty, and make sure security is as efficient as possible.
