Although you might pay them both, keep in mind that mortgage insurance and homeowner’s insurance aren’t the same thing:
- Homeowner’s insurance protects you against loss from damage to the property.
- Mortgage insurance protects you in case you can’t make your mortgage payments.
However, you can deduct mortgage insurance premiums on both your personal home and rental properties. Income restrictions apply to mortgage insurance premiums on your home.
