What's the difference between homeowners insurance and landlord insurance?
I have home insurance on a place that I'm thinking of renting out. What differences are there, if any, between homeowners and landlord insurance?
Homeowners insurance covers you for a home that is both owned and occupied by the same person. If you own a home but rent it out to others for a fee, that is when you’d need landlord insurance. Landlord insurance is typically a little more expensive due to the risks and unknowns of a tenant living in the home. It also typically does not cover personal property since the owner would not be occupying the home.

I applied for a loan, and when I signed the papers, I didn't notice that the Social Security number was wrong. Now I'm getting cold feet about the purchase, so I reviewed the contract and found the error. Does this void the auto loan contract?

Can I add my car to my parents' insurance to get a cheaper rate?
"Can I be added to my parents' policy even if I'll be the primary owner and operator? I'll be the registered owner, but I'm only 22. I can't find affordable full coverage for my financed car."

Can I take a car that I cosigned for after a breakup?
I cosigned a car loan for my then-boyfriend two years ago and I've made all the payments. After our breakup, I asked him to give the car to me but he refused. Is there a way for me to get the car in my name only?
