Your landlord's insurance only covers the building – not what’s inside your apartment. Renters insurance covers the things you own and provides protection in the event of damages or injuries that happen inside your apartment, loft or flat.GET A QUOTE
Renters insurance provides coverage for you and your personal belongings when renting an apartment, staying in a dorm or living with friends or family.
How much renters insurance do you need?
Your landlord's insurance doesn't cover any theft or damage to your personal belongings, and the value of your personal property can add up quickly. Decide how much your personal property is worth:
- Document what you own with photos or videos to determine how much coverage you need.
- Include your electronics, clothing, furniture and any other items that may add up.
Renters insurance liability coverage can protect you from liability claims and lawsuits if others experience accidental injury or damage to their property while in your apartment, loft or flat. Liability coverage is especially important for adult children who return home or are living with family or friends. Consider the following:
- How much renters insurance does your landlord or apartment complex require?
- How much do you have in assets, or what is your net worth?
- How much are you at risk of being held liable for injuries or damages?
