5 Tips to Protect Florida Vacation Rental Properties
1. Find an Expert
Get help putting the best policy in place by someone who knows the intricacies of vacation rental insurance in Florida. You can find trusted partners through the FVRMA .
2. Be Ready for Hurricane Season
Know the risk areas for your property and form a plan to address any damage after the storm. Talk with your insurance professional to secure reliable contractors for repairs.
3. Watch for Fraud
Florida is in the midst of a war on insurance fraud caused by unscrupulous contractors. Make sure you don’t sign anything without getting your insurance professional involved. Some contractors try to use an Assignment of Benefits which may ultimately lead to more costly repairs.
4. Assess Flood Risk
If your property is located on or close to water, you will need flood insurance coverage since flood damage is not protected under a traditional homeowners policy. Technically, all of Florida is at some risk, so simply looking at flood zone maps may not be enough. Even heavy rains have caused major damage to properties in the past few years.
5. Understand Sinkholes
Unlike some states, sinkholes are covered under an insurance policy in Florida—to a point. Talk with your agent to find out if you need additional coverage to protect your property.
