First in Protecting, Your Vacant Property.

Business investors, landlords and other owners of residential and commercial property often find their investments unoccupied during tenant or ownership transitions or even renovation. First Underwriters has many insurance carriers that specialize in vacant property insurance products, offering coverage for unoccupied homes and commercial buildings. Owners can purchase property insurance limits up to $5 million and general liability limits up to $1 million, on a stand-alone basis. Should the occupancy of the property change during the policy term, property coverage can easily be converted to a rental dwelling policy.

The vacant property policy is insured by a respected “A” rated carrier, serviced by our team of experts and available with no premium commitment. We also offer competitive compensation to retail agents and brokers.
