As a renter, your personal possessions are your most valuable asset, and need to be protected in the event of a fire, theft, or almost anything else that might happen. Unfortunately, your landlord’s insurance policy does not provide coverage for your personal property or your personal liability.

Basic tenant insurance provides the following coverages:

  • Furniture, clothing, appliances, and many other personal belongings.
  • Covered items while traveling.
  • Additional living expenses if you have to temporarily relocate due to a loss.
  • Some improvements made to the rental unit.
  • Liability – if someone gets injured on your rented premises there is coverage if you are held liable. This includes coverage for legal expenses. 

Here’s two more great pluses: These policies are inexpensive, usually less than $20 a month, and having a tenants policy qualifies you for a discount on your auto insurance!

Don’t wait until you have a claim and get caught with no coverage. Call us to secure a policy today.
