What Is Renters’ Insurance and What Does It Cover?

During unexpected events, a tenant’s belongings can become damaged. You may not always be able to prevent certain situations, and this is where renters’ insurance comes into play. Many tenants mistakenly assume their landlord’s insurance will protect them should damage occur on the property, but that’s not the case. The landlord’s policy covers only the structure or complex itself, and not the tenant’s personal belongings.

With renters’ insurance, if a covered event such as a storm, fire, or theft occurs, policyholders can make a claim to receive appropriate compensation for their loss. Items that are covered through renters’ insurance can include electronics, furniture, clothing, and any appliances you own. Additionally, should tenants be forced to make other living arrangements while their unit undergoes repairs, renters’ insurance helps pay for living expenses until the rental unit is livable again.

Renters’ insurance doesn’t just cover property and belongings. It’s also intended to protect people. In the unfortunate event that a visitor falls down the stairs, slips on a spill, or is bitten by a pet while visiting your rented space, you may be financially responsible for any injuries they sustain. Renters’ liability coverage pays for any medical costs and litigation expenses.

More Coverage Can Be Added

In most cases, a standard renters’ insurance policy offers tenants more than enough coverage. However, it’s important to note that not all damaging events are covered. To account for this, renters can elect to add additional coverage to their policies. Muller Insurance is pleased to extend the following protection:

Earthquake Coverage

Because most standard renters’ insurance policies don’t protect against earthquakes, people who live in an earthquake-prone region may want to invest in additional coverage.

Jewelry, Fine Arts, and Collectibles

While renters’ insurance covers your belongings, it may not be enough to protect your most valuable items. An additional policy will cover jewelry, fine arts, and collectibles, as well as other high-end items kept in your rental unit.

Umbrella Insurance

Tenants concerned about potential lawsuits beyond what a standard renters’ policy covers should consider adding umbrella insurance, which extends the limits of your liability coverage.
