Some landlords may not have knowledge of building insurance thus do not buy these, and so here are some of the important facts that one should know about this kind of insurance.
First is to know that landlord or building insurance is defined as a kind of insurance policy that would spare a building or the owner of the property from any sort of loss financially relating to the damages of their properties. This insurance policy would cover the damages that happened to the entire building, main infrastructure and in some cases would include the items inside the building that the landlord owns. When other natural disasters and unwanted situations like fire, earthquakes, explosions, floods and others would occur and cause damages to the properties, the landlords will be protected from these losses because of this type of insurance.

Some people would prefer to spend money in insuring their household goods on the basis that theft or damage could easily happen, and thus they do not see the necessity of having building insurance because of the solid structure of the property. But take note that these items susceptible to theft or damage may cost less, but the amount is much lower compared to the cost in repairing a damaged building or property.
Aside from the natural disasters that building insurance would cover are power surges, electrical faults, fallen trees, overflow of geysers, impact, vandalism and other related incidents.
