ARE YOU A REAL ESTATE INVESTOR LOOKING INTO CONTRACTOR INSURANCE?
IF YOU HAVE HIRED A NEW CONTRACTOR FOR YOUR INVESTMENT PROPERTY THEN THEY NEED CONTRACTOR INSURANCE
If you are a real estate investor who has hired contractors to work on your investment property, then you need to have general liability contractor insurance. This is especially true if the contractor is new and/or uninsured themselves.
Here's what you need to know:
How Does Contractor Insurance Help
Contractor insurance will help you in the event that:
- A construction default has occurred
- A subcontractor suffers an injury
- You get sued over an injury or accident that occurs
These are just some of the risks that you can face when it comes to new contractors. In insurance, we often say, “not knowing is not an excuse – and someone has to get paid.” That is simply the reality of insurance, even if you are a real estate investor looking into real estate properties casually.
Quite simply, having this type of insurance can protect your assets and give you peace of mind. When you are a real estate investor, it also allows you to focus on what really matters - investing.
Worker's Compensation and Contractor Insurance
Not only do you need contractor's insurance, but it is also a good idea to consider getting workers compensation as well. This is also helpful because it allows you even more asset protection for your real estate investment.
