What is Renter’s Insurance?

Renter’s insurance is similar to homeowners’ insurance, as it provides coverage in case you’re sued by someone who is injured while on your rental property or your belongings are damaged in some way. It’s peace of mind for the renter as well as the homeowner/landlord in case the unfortunate were to ever happen. 

When is Renter’s Insurance a Good Idea?

Whenever you’re going to rent a home, apartment, or another place to live, having renter’s insurance is always a good idea. Why? You can never predict when a storm might occur and damage your belongings or when a criminal might decide to burglarize your home and steal your personal items. Renter’s insurance will pay you for the value of your belongings at the time of the incident, which will enable you to purchase replacements for the damaged items.
