Renter’s Insurance Does More than Protect Your Stuff. It Protects You.

Most renters don’t have renter’s insurance. So, it’s no surprise that they don’t know much about it or don’t think they need it. Let’s start with this fact—if you rent, you need it. Another fact is, it’s very affordable—about $10 a month. Here’s everything else you need to know.

Your Landlord’s Insurance Doesn’t Cover You.

The insurance on your apartment building protects your landlord. Should a pipe burst and flood your place, your landlord is covered for any damage to the property, such as ruined floors. But damage to your personal possessions? Your landlord is off the hook.

What Renter’s Insurance Does Cover

Basically, most everything you own which is damaged or lost as a result of flooding, fire, theft and vandalism. Even better, coverage can extend beyond your place to items you keep in your car, or if your bike is stolen outside the neighborhood coffee shop.

Coverage for an Emergency Rental

Remember that burst pipe? Well, your landlord says you can’t stay while your apartment is undergoing repairs. No worries. Renter’s policies can cover the cost of your temporary stay at a hotel.

Coverage Against Personal Liability

Let’s say you cause the flood—your sink overflows and soaks the downstairs neighbor’s place. He can sue you for his damaged stuff, and a renter’s policy can take care of it. You’re also covered if a friend has a slip and fall in your place. But a friend wouldn’t sue you, right?
