Why Do You Need Tenants or Renters Insurance?

The owner of your apartment has insurance, but it covers only the building and not your possessions or the personal liability that exists for you as the tenant or renter. Tenants insurance also provides a history of property insurance which reduces your premium on future polices.

Renter and tenant insurance protect your personal property and provide liability coverage. This insurance covers belongings against risks like theft and fire, and includes additional living expenses if your home is uninhabitable. Premiums are influenced by factors such as credit score, coverage amount, location, and claims history.

Key coverage provided:

  • Contents on a replacement basis meaning that 15-year-old couch will be replaced with a new one should an insured peril, such as fire, cause a loss.
  • Personal Liability to cover injury to another person.
  • Personal Liability to cover property damage to the building should you cause a fire that results in the owner suing you for your negligence.
  • Legal fees associated with any legal action against you. We pay a lawyer to defend you. The annual cost of a policy is less than a lawyer charges per hour.

Tenant insurance covers your belongings against common risks like theft, fire, and loss, protecting your investment in personal property. It applies to items both at home and temporarily away, such as on vacation. If your home becomes uninhabitable due to a covered event, tenant insurance covers necessary additional living expenses until you can return or find a new place to live.
