Just because your landlord has coverage doesn’t mean that you do, too. In most cases, your landlord’s insurance policy covers only structural damage to the building itself.
Your Trusted Renters Insurance Agency
If the structure goes up in flames, your landlord’s coverage would include repairs to the building, but not reimburse you for your possessions.
Renters insurance provides protection against both property loss and liability in the event that you cause injury or property damage. To learn more about what that means, we’ve covered some basics about each.
Unerstanding your Renters policy
Renters insurance covers your possessions against damage for things such as fire, smoke, lightning, vandalism, theft and water damage—but not flooding—to name a few. It also extends beyond on premise theft and hazards, covering property that is stolen from your car, or lost or damaged anywhere you happen to be.
There are two personal property coverage options to choose from: replacement cost value or actual cash value. We recommend insuring your personal property for its replacement cost value so that you can replace yesterday’s purchases at today’s prices.
In addition to protecting your personal property, renters insurance also protects you in the event that you are responsible for injury or property damage to others. That means you’ll likely be protected if someone slips and sprains their ankle at your annual birthday bash.
Liability also provides coverage for legal defense costs and judgments in a lawsuit, whether the incident occurred within your rented residence, or elsewhere.
