Your arson exapmle is BS.
I have had two arson fires at my properties, and my brother had one earlier this year. I had opportunity to talk to the fire marshalls. Arson is VERY EASY to identify, and VERY HARD to prosecute.
and once we have an arson, the vacancy policy will not pay.
so, you are aserting that there is an elevated risk of accidental fire in a vacant unit (like a lightning strike, or an electrical fire, or a fire at an adjacent property buring down my property.).
I do not buy it. The only elevated risk I see is the risk associated with small problems (otherwise seen and reported by occupants) which develop into big problems (and wouldn’t have been big problems had occupants been present).
