    He can’t, the insurance name needs to match the deed. Tenants have renters insurance.

    NO. The homeowner will have insurance on the building and land and that can not be in a tennants name only the homeowners, but the tennant will need to have their own insurance to cover contents of their things.

    The landlord can add you as an additional insured on his insurance policy, but he won’t be able to place the master policy in the name of the tenant….if he does, any claim would most certainly be denied assuming his agent didn’t catch on before then. Adding you as an additional insured doesn’t do much for the landlord though…..it only helps protect you.
