In most jurisdictions, landlord insurance is not a legal requirement by law. However, while it’s not mandatory, many landlords choose to purchase landlord insurance to protect their investment properties and mitigate potential financial risks.

That said, there may be some circumstances where landlord insurance is required:

  1. Mortgage requirements: If you have a mortgage on your rental property, your lender may require you to have landlord insurance as part of the loan agreement to protect their financial interest in the property.
  2. Homeowners association (HOA) or condominium association requirements: If your rental property is located in a community governed by an HOA or condominium association, the association’s bylaws may require you to have certain types of insurance coverage, including landlord insurance.

Even if landlord insurance is not legally required, it is strongly recommended for landlords to protect their properties and investments from potential risks such as property damage, liability claims, and loss of rental income. It’s essential to assess your individual situation and consult with insurance professionals to determine the appropriate level of coverage for your rental property.
