While your landlord likely may have insurance coverage for the building itself, you may need a renters insurance policy to protect your personal possessions. Your renters insurance policy can also help protect you from liability if, for example, a visitor accidentally trips over your rug and breaks a leg.
Imagine the cost of replacing EVERYTHING in your home. A simple renter’s policy will have you covered.
Renters insurance can provide protection for your furniture and personal possessions — at home or away from home — against losses such as fire, lightning, windstorms, hail, explosions, smoke and vandalism. A renters policy can also protect your property against many types of theft loss in your apartment or anywhere in the world.
In the event that a claim is made against you or you are sued, your renters personal liability coverage can help to cover the associated legal costs and related damages. Most renters policies provide $100,000 (minimum) of financial protection for covered accidental bodily injury or property damage to others. Higher amounts of coverage are available.
