More and more apartment complexes and landlords are requiring their tenants to carry “Renters Insurance”, something that the tenants see as an additional financial burden. Usually the minimum coverage required is $100,000 of personal liability coverage which would protects them if the tenant causes damage, for example, fire inside the apartment or water damage from overflowing toilet. Instead of filing a claim on the building policy they would file a claim on the renter’s policy.
Renter’s Insurance can be a big benefit for the tenant, it can covers the personal property of the tenant and cover expenses related to temporary housing if you can’t live in the building while it is being rebuilt or repaired due to a covered loss.
There are many options to consider when comparing renter’s insurance policies, replacement cost versus actual cash value, how much personal liability do you need? How much personal property coverage and medical payments is adequate?
