If something happens to your home, insurance should be there to come to the rescue. While it won’t make you feel any better, it can take care of the details and get you somewhere to live while you get back on your feet.
Blu Corporate Housing deals a lot with insurance housing. As a premier agent for finding long-term rentals, we see a lot of people who need somewhere to stay while their home is rebuilt, replaced or assessed by the insurers. While insurance is a great thing to have, the companies don’t hurry themselves to help you out. That’s where insurance housing comes in.
What is Insurance Housing?
Insurance housing is what you find when your own home is unavailable for whatever reason and your insurance company allows you to rent somewhere in the meantime. The properties are standard rentals, just paid by the insurer instead of you. Depending on your policy, the insurer may pay direct, or reimburse you for the cost.
How Blu Can Help With Insurance Housing
Blu specializes in temporary accommodation. We are national experts at finding affordable, high quality rentals for stays of 30 days or more. It’s what we do and it’s what we’re good at.
Using a company like ours to find a rented apartment or insurance housing takes a lot of the legwork out of finding somewhere to live. We can scour the market, contact landlords and find viable properties while you take care of your own needs.
While we take care of just about everything, that doesn’t mean you have nothing to do. You will still need to check everything before signing on the line. Here are just a couple of the elements of insurance housing you will need to be sure of before committing to a rental.
The Contract Terms
The contract is between the landlord and yourself, we have no part in that. It’s important for you to fully understand what you’re getting yourself into before signing anything. Our landlords are all quality ones, but we can’t guarantee anything.
- Are the terms fair?
- Does the rental period match your expectations?
- Is the payment schedule fair?
- Are the deposits returnable?
- Are there any unfair clauses?
You need to answer these questions before taking on any insurance housing whether the insurance company is paying or not!
Building and Amenities
If you have owned your own home for any length of time, you will be very used to it. Used to the comforts of home and the amenities that come with it. Just like you’re paying for that with your mortgage, you pay for those with the rent.
With any furnished rental you cannot take anything for granted. Not all properties come with parking, cable, phone, laundry services or many of the other perks you get at home.
Apartment walls can be thin and in an apartment block, that means more noise. If you’re a light sleeper, or work at night, ensure the property you select is quiet enough to let you live in peace.
