American Modern Residential Insurance Products for Indiana
Indiana Rental property insurance for landlords
Most people understand property insurance by comparing it to the policy they have for their home, which offers very wide coverage. However, a rental policy does not qualify for a true homeowners policy. Most agents will direct you to a rental property policy.
American Modern gives landlords two options to insure rental property. The insurance terms for rental property coverage are DP-3 [?] and DP-1 [?] They each have different requirements for the property’s physical description, and offer different ranges of coverage.

Insurance for vacation and seasonal homes.
Most people understand property insurance by comparing it to the policy they have for their home, which offers very wide coverage. However, a vacation home does not qualify for a homeowners [?] policy, perhaps because the home is located in an isolated area, or may lack utilities or a furnace for heating.
American Modern gives owners of a vacation home or seasonal home two ways to insure their home away from home. The insurance terms for this kind of coverage are DP-3 [?] and DP-1 [?] . They each have different requirements for the property’s physical description, and offer different ranges of coverage.
Insuring a vacant home is easy, if you have the right policy. Many insurance companies don’t like to cover a vacant home because it is more likely to suffer certain kinds of damage, such as a break-in by kids or vagrants, or damage that grows to a large scale, for example a water leak that goes undetected for weeks.
When a home becomes vacant, a standard homeowners policy may give the carrier the right to cancel mid-term, lower coverage levels, or even deny a claim.
What you need is a policy that is specifically written for the risks of a vacant property. It applies to these common circumstances:
You own rental property and are between tenants.
You’ve moved for a new job but your house is unsold.
A property is undergoing renovations.
As executor, you are selling a house to close an estate
Comprehensive protection for you and your home.
Your house may be in great shape, but because it is too far from a fire station, is an older home, or has a valuation different than the average in your neighborhood, you may have a challenge in finding insurance from a standard homeowners policy [?]
American Modern’s specialty homeowners program insures homes that need something more, or different, than what is readily available in the standard market.

Insurance protection for renters.
Renters As a renter, your primary financial interest is tied mostly to your personal possessions. If a burst pipe floods the basement, or an accident starts a kitchen fire, your possessions may be damaged or ruined.
What many renters do not know is that a landlord’s insurance does not cover you. He has no obligation to replace or repair your belongings, even though his insurance may cover the damage to his building.
To protect yourself, and your family, you need renters insurance.
Not sure you need it?
Ask yourself if you can afford to replace all of these:
- Clothes and accessories
- Gaming equipment
- Sports equipment
- Hobby materials
- Stereo/portable audio
- Camera/Video camera
- Exercise equipment
Without renters insurance, replacing these common items is an out-of-pocket expense.
