For anybody out there that leases land, does your property owner require you to carry liability insurance? I'm in the process of leasing some property and they want me to carry a liability insurance plan while it's being leased.

Not required, but I have an umbrella policy that covers me anyway.

Ya I figured most people would be more relaxed about it. This is owned by a big company from down south.

This could explain A LOT. Large land holding corporations have been leasing for decades in the south. Very common practice for them to require liability insurance because they have A LOT more at stake.

It is not required. However, if the landowner is leasing the land to you, it does open up liability for the landowner. If the landowner gives permission for free, then he does not have the same liability.
