What Insurance for the Mobile Home Park Owner?

If you are an owner or manager of a mobile park, you need insurance that shields from bodily injury or property damage liability claims as a result of the property’s use, upkeep, or related functions. Coverage should include general liability and specific property risk exposure, with products liability and medical payments coverage as an added option.

Mobile park owners with operations in relation to entities such as boats, docks, floats, swimming pools, restaurants, and shops should consult with their agent in order to determine risks, necessary coverage and premium costs.
