Tips for Protecting Your San Antonio Investment Property and Rental Income

Kevin Knight - Friday, February 7, 2020

When you're renting out property in San Antonio, you're probably doing it intending to earn some money. You need to make sure that not only your property is insured, but that the rental income from your investment is also protected.

There are several ways to protect yourself and your investment financially, and we're talking about those things in today's blog.

Life Can Happen to Anyone

Tenants, even well-qualified tenants, are a bit of risk. You're moving people into your property, their credit scores may be acceptable, and they are gainfully employed with the right amount of income. Still, it's essential to stay mindful that life can happen; unfortunately, bad things can happen to your good tenants, like job loss, health problems, divorce, and even death.

Protecting yourself from tenant-related risk is essential. Tenants can skip or stop paying rent, need to be evicted, or even cause malicious damage to your home - all of which will put your rental income in danger. If your tenant moves out before the end of the lease term without telling you, you'll face lost rent. If a tenant causes malicious damage to your home beyond the amount of the security deposit, you'll not only have to spend money repairing the property; you could also suffer thousands of dollars in costs and a prolonged vacancy during the turnover period.

Having an extra layer of protection allows for better peace of mind, and that's why many landlords are turning to insurance products like SureVestor. With SureVestor's Scheer Landlord Protection Insurance, you're financially protected against loss of income due to tenant-related risk, such as malicious damage, loss of rent due to skip or eviction, and eviction cost.
