One of the most fequently asked questions regarding home insuarance in Spain is:
Q. I am a tentant. Do I need home insurance?
A. As a tenant you need to cover your personal contents and contract third party liability cover.
There is no need to cover the building unless you have done any reformation to the house.
If you have done any work to the house itself, you would need to do an ‘obras de reforma’
or first loss cover for the sum that the work is worth and this will ensure that you are
covered for any changes you have made.
Main Difference from the UK
Most properties are located on urbanizations. All the properties within an urbanization form a community. Most communities have insurance policies to cover public areas and may cover the buildings part of your insurance. However, beware! Many community covers are very basic and you may need additional ‘gap/first
loss cover’ to ensure that you are properly protected so prior to making a decision, find out what exactly your community is covered for.
