Vacant Land Insurance in Columbus OH, Cleveland OH and Cincinnati OH
Owning a lot or vacant land may seem low risk, but this is not always the case. Empty land can pose a variety of risks, including liability risks, and all landowners need to determine whether that risk level demands having vacant land insurance.
What Is Vacant Land Insurance?
Vacant land insurance is a type of liability insurance. This coverage protects you if anyone is hurt on your vacant property, providing financial protection for their medical costs. It may also offer financial assistance for legal fees if you’re sued over an injury that happens on your vacant property. It’s important to note that vacant land insurance does not typically cover damaged property on your vacant lot.
Does My Home Insurance Cover Vacant Land?
Sometimes you can add your vacant land insurance coverage to your existing home insurance policy. If you inherit or add land to your property, a basic home insurance policy might not cover liability issues for this vacant land.
Is Vacant Land Insurance Required?
You’re not legally required to have vacant land insurance, but coverage does provide protection from potential litigation and medical expenses. We can help you determine if you should have vacant land insurance.
How Much Is Vacant Land Insurance?
The cost of vacant land insurance depends on several factors, including your location, property size, the land’s purpose and any known dangers (e.g., a deep pit or covered well). Your selected coverages and limits may also impact premiums.
What Does Vacant Property Insurance Cover?
If you own property that is vacant for extended time periods, you may need vacant property insurance to cover potential damages and accident liability.
Your vacant property insurance policy may provide many of the same coverages as a standard homeowners insurance policy, including:
Fire and explosions
Each vacant property insurance policy provides details about which perils are covered and which are excluded. If you are concerned about possible flood damage, talk with your agent about purchasing a separate flood insurance policy, as many homeowners and vacant property policies exclude flood damage from coverage.

Who Should Have Vacant Land Insurance?
If you own vacant land, work with your agent to determine which insurance policies are most appropriate for your situation. Vacant land insurance may be a good fit, but you may also need other policies to provide adequate financial protection.
If your land is financed, your lender likely has specific insurance coverage requirements. How you use your vacant land also determines which insurance type may be best for your situation.
