Why do you need Tenant Insurance?
In typical rental situations, your landlord’s insurance covers the physical structure of a building or dwelling, and you are responsible for anything you bring into the space, including furniture, electronics, clothing, jewelry, and other personal property. That means you need insurance, too. Sometimes Renter’s Insurance is a requirement in landlord-tenant lease agreements, but in any case, it’s a smart, proactive investment to protect the things you love.
For good reason, we don’t often think about what would happen if someone were to be injured in your home; in some circumstances, you may not be protected by the landlord’s insurance. Or what about any damages to the building? If you’re found responsible, you could be sued to recover the repair or rebuilding costs. And that’s again where Renter’s Insurance comes into play, to offer you the financial protection you need.
Renter’s Insurance is like an umbrella in hand; it’s an affordable, proactive measure you can take instead of crossing your fingers and hoping for no rain. Here are a few examples you may not have forecasted in your future that would require a liability claim.
Fire & Smoke
Where there’s smoke, there’s fire — and where there’s fire, there’s damage. To recover the losses, Renter’s Insurance helps look after you from spark to finish.
Water Damage & Extended Water Coverage
Despite our best laid plans, pipes burst, septic pumps fail, and bathtubs overflow. Renter’s Insurance gives you the helping hand you need to cover any property damage and restore your space.
Additional Living Expenses
This includes any costs of basic daily living and maintaining good health. They’re covered by Renter’s Insurance when you’re forced out of your space by the unexpected.
Crime & Vandalism
Protect your valuables from theft or damage. Renter’s Insurance typically covers break-ins or damage to your belongings, and compensates you to be able to either repurchase or repair your property.
There are countless scenarios that can end up hurting you financially: you left the water running, forgot to turn off the stove, somebody falls down your stairs and sues. Protect yourself from potential out-of-pocket replacement costs by making sure you have the right coverage in place.
