When homeowners live in one property and rent out another, this second home isn't always full of tenants. There are times when the rental home is vacant for weeks or months at a time. Because property owners can't be present at both homes simultaneously, insurance companies offer some peace-of-mind with unoccupied property insurance. This policy type isn't familiar to every homeowner, however. It's important to know what kind of coverage comes with vacant home insurance to protect the owner's finances.
