Even if you don’t own a home, you still have a lot of property to protect. And just because your landlord has coverage doesn’t mean that you do, too. In most cases, your landlord’s insurance policy covers only structural damage to the building itself. If the structure goes up in flames, your landlord’s coverage would include repairs to the building, but not reimburse you for your possessions.

Renters insurance provides protection against both property loss and liability in the event that you cause injury or property damage. To learn more about what that means, we’ve covered some basics below.

 

What does renters insurance cover?

  • your possessions against damage for things such as fire, smoke, lightning, vandalism, theft and water damage
  • additional living expenses related to making other living arrangements
  • medical expenses for treating people injured on your premises
  • property stolen, lost or damaged anywhere you happen to be
  • legal defense costs in a lawsuit

 

Is Coverage Affordable?

Because renters insurance covers only the value of your belongings, not the building, the premium is relatively inexpensive. For about the same cost as going to the movies once a month, you can gain peace of mind, regardless of life’s unexpected mishaps.

Testimonial

"Yesterday, Sindi completed the new policies for our 3 properties and two automobiles. We appreciate being able to have all the coverage with one company and it helps to have the umbrella coverage on all the properties as well as the automobiles. Sindi completed everything in a timely manner and the work was done as promised; despite it being her first day back from vacation. I found her to be knowledgeable, willing to follow up on specific questions and able to quickly get additional detail information and willing to make minor adjustments. Overall, I found her to be a very competent insurance professional and a very pleasant person to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend the Neckerman Agency and Sindi in particular to my friends and business associates. Thanks to you as well for recruiting, selecting and retaining competent staff."
