What is Renters Insurance?
Renters insurance is a policy which provides most of the benefits of homeowner’s insurance, including liability insurance. The tenant’s personal property is also covered against named perils such as fire, theft, and vandalism. Renters insurance does not include coverage for the structure apart from small alterations that a tenant makes to the dwelling. The owner of the building is responsible for insuring it but bears no responsibility for the tenant’s belongings.
How Much Renters Insurance Do I Need?
The cost of renters insurance and the amount of personal property coverage you need depends on how much your property is worth.
To get a better understanding of your coverage needs, ask yourself:
· How much are my belongings worth?
· Could I afford to buy it all back again if it were destroyed in a fire or stolen? What would I do in the event of a liability lawsuit against me?
If you have ever asked yourself if you need renters insurance, the answer is probably yes.
