- If I move and decide to rent out my house, I don’t need to change anything, correct? No. Almost every insurance company has a requirement for a homeowner policy that it must be “owner-occupied”. You will need to change the policy to a Dwelling policy if you no longer live there.
- If I move out of my house and it is vacant while we have it on the market, is the insurance still in force? No. Every homeowner’s policy has what is called a “vacancy clause” in it. Some limit the coverage while the home is vacant. Some give you 60 days to sell it. Some give you Zero days of coverage. There are special “vacancy policies” that are needed to ensure proper coverage.
