Answer:  You will need to have Landlord policy naming Reconnect Realty as an additional insured, additional interest or have a provision that covers the property manager.
Answer: The HOA’s insurance covers items in your associations documents (Roof, exterior walls etc.)  Each HOA is different with what it covers.  A private Home Owner’s policy covers the interior contents of the property (cabinets,  appliances etc.).  A Landlord policy covers owners for many different issues including liability issues.
Answer: We require you to name us as an additional insured, additional interest or have language in the policy covering the property manager due to the great cost of litigation.  We are able to provide our service at competitive rates due in part to the owner’s Landlord policy being obligated to pick up coverage for certain issues related to the property.
