Rentals and Secondary Homes

Airbnb hosts recently doubled to 70,288

Eighty-nine percent of newly purchased vacation homes are expected to be rented out within their first year. The recent surge in the online marketplace for short-term rentals has introduced new and unfamiliar risks for a large number of individuals. In fact, the number of Airbnb hosts in Canada recently doubled over a two-year period to 70,288.

Many clients may not know that their homeowners policy is unlikely to protect against losses involving renters. This can leave them exposed to costs stemming from renter injuries and property damage. With the rental market only expected to continue growing, ensure your clients have proper protection.
