Though you may not own the building in which you live, protecting your property is vital. Understanding the basic components of Renters Insurance will help you determine the best coverage for your situation.
With the exception of your automobile, this provides protection for everything you own. Consider all of the contents of your rental unit to ensure proper coverage. Remember, computers and other expensive electronic equipment – or jewelry, fine art or other valuables – may need to be listed separately to ensure protection in the event of a loss.
Factors Affecting Renters Insurance Costs:
- Type of construction
- Age of building
- Number of units
- Amount of deductible
If someone outside your household is injured on your property, or should you become responsible for injuries to someone away from your property, this provides coverage for bodily injuries. Increased liability protection is available through Umbrella liability protection.
