If you rent the place you live, you may think that your possessions are protected by your landlord’s insurance. The truth is that your landlord’s policy covers only the building itself. To protect your possessions you need a separate coverage known as Renters Insurance. Keep reading to learn more.
Renters Insurance: What You Need to Know
In short, Renters Insurance protects your belongings when you are renting a place. It may also cover legal costs up to the limits in your policy if you are held responsible for an accident that occurs in your home.
Most Renters Insurance policies offer three types of protection:
- Personal possessions
- Additional living expenses (ALE)
The personal possessions portion of a Renters Insurance policy covers belongings such as furniture, clothes, jewelry, appliances, and computer equipment. Liability refers to legal costs related to incidents for which you are responsible. Additional living expenses help cover the costs of living elsewhere if your home is uninhabitable.
What Is (and Isn’t) Covered
Renters insurance offers protection against risks that include:
Most Renters Insurance policies do not include coverage against floods or earthquakes. However, you can get protection against these two risks by purchasing separate policies. (Click here to learn more about Earthquake insurance.)
