Renters insurance is an important insurance for those renting a house or apartment. However, it is also the most neglected insurance as renters don’t think it is important. Most renters think that their belongings while living in a house are covered by the landlord’s insurance, but this is often not the case. The landlord’s policy covers only the building and nothing inside it. Therefore, renters are on their own when it comes to covering their personal property while living in a rented dwelling. Here are some interesting facts about renters insurance:
An interesting fact about renters insurance is that it covers most all items and incidents that take place inside of a rented house or apartment. (within your policy) Therefore, if an item is stolen from a house that has renter insurance, the policy holder would be compensated, irregardless of whether the specific item was on an insured list or not. You will have to show in good faith that the item was indeed purchased by providing an owners manual or a receipt.
