Renters Insurance Facts - What you Should Know

Homeowners need home insurance and renters need renters insurance. If you're a renter and you don’t have renters insurance, you're risking financial disaster. Here are some facts about renters insurance that you should know.

FACT: Renters are not covered by their landlord's policy


Property owners purchase insurance coverage for their buildings, not their tenants. This insurance covers the building itself from loss. It does not ...

* Cover your possessions if they are damaged or stolen.

* Pay your living expenses if your home or apartment is damaged and you have to live somewhere else during repairs.

* Cover you if someone is injured while visiting you.

You need to buy renters insurance to provide these coverages.

FACT: You have more possessions than you think

It only costs a couple hundred dollars a year to buy renters insurance. If you walk around your house and take inventory of everything you own, you'll realize it would cost much more than that to replace everything. Renters insurance covers all your possessions including:

* Electronic equipment
* Sports equipment
* Clothes and shoes
* Musical instruments
* Furniture
* Appliances
* Kitchen items
* Tools
* Jewelry

FACT: Renters insurance is cheap

You can buy renters insurance for only tens of dollars a month or a couple hundred dollars a year. This will buy you about $30,000 worth of coverage for your possessions and $100,000 worth of liability coverage to protect you from personal liability lawsuits if someone is hurt in your home.
