Landlord Insurance In Illinois

8 Replies

Does anyone have recommendations for landlord insurance in Illinois? Or an insurance broker that you can recommend? 

@Jason Bott - Hi Keishee, I mentioned Jason, as he is in your area, and should be able to assist you! 

@Keishee Hill  Not every insurance company offers a true landlord insurance (which has coverage similar to a homeowners insurance). May offer Fire policy for rental properties. I find those highly inadequate. I found this out by accident. Now my home and landlord insurances are with different companies, as the company for my home only has a fire policy option.

My landlord policy is with MetLife.

thanks @Upen Patel . I will contact MetLife for a quote.

Upen Patel ,I just have a follow up question. What type of things should I be looking for in a landlord insurance policy? You said that not all of them are the same, so what exactly is missing from some that is a must have.

This app is funky. For some reason it says the name is attached but I do not see the link to the person's name. Does anyone know if I am able to link someone's name in the app?

I use NREIG exclusively for all of my rentals, in any state.

Thanks @Chanté Owens for the mention.

@Keishee Hill depending on what you are looking to insure will depend on which companies to consider.  In IL, I am pretty sure MetLife will only insure your rental if they also insure your home and auto.  There are 10-20 options for for a stand alone commercial rental policy that is not tied to you personal policy.  PM me if you want to discuss further.
