When you are a renter, you may wonder why you need renters insurance. It is surprising how many renters think landlords have insurance that covers their home and all their possessions. Your landlord undoubtedly has insurance, but it is to protect their building, not anything that belongs to you. At InsPeak in Arlington, TX, we are dedicated to providing our customers the best possible insurance experience.
You may need to have renters insurance because you may be required to have it by your landlord or management company. The reality is having renters insurance is a good thing, and you should not feel it is a bad thing to be forced to get it. It is reasonably priced and offers some very valuable protection.
Whether you are renting a one-room apartment or a 10 room house, chances are you have a lot more possessions than you realize. In the event of some peril striking your rental, the potential is there for you to lose everything you own. Try to imagine having to replace all of your clothing, furniture, dishes, appliances, and electronics. And having to pay for all of it yourself. It is a pretty scary prospect. If you have renters insurance, you will replace your things and get on with your life.
Where will you stay
If your rental were damaged or destroyed, you would not have anywhere to stay. If you have rental insurance, you will be able to stay in a hotel in the immediate time after a covered peril, and then if it will be a while until you can move back in, a temporary rental can be found.
Anyone can get sued, and if you do, this insurance will help you pay legal fees and a judgment against you.
