Renters Insurance

Renters Insurance

Protect your property, belongings, and way of life

Renters face many of the same risks that homeowners do. Your landlord or rental association’s insurance covers the building structure, but it doesn’t cover your personal liability or your belongings in case of a loss. In addition, renter’s insurance will pay expenses if your home becomes uninhabitable due to a covered loss (fire, windstorm, etc).

Rental insurance covers:

  • Your liability if someone injures themselves on your property
  • Your personal belongings – furniture, clothing, etc.
  • Additional living expenses arising from a covered loss

Additional features you can choose for added security:

  • Replacement Cost on Contents
  • Additional Coverage for Jewelry, Furs, Antiques, etc.
