Common Renters Insurance Myths

Renters Insurance allows you to protect your assets. The policy covers any damage to your personal items if a fire occurs or some other type of natural disaster. You are also covered if someone steals or vandalizes your property. Liability coverage is also important, as you will be protected if someone gets injured while visiting your property. Here are some common renters insurance myths to avoid while researching coverage.

I Don’t Have Valuable Assets.

Perhaps you may feel that you don’t need renters insurance coverage because you don’t have any valuable possessions. This is a mistake. Any item that you own holds some value. That’s why you need coverage. If something were to happen to your items, things could get pricey very quickly without renters insurance.

The Policy Is Restrictive

Many people assume that renters insurance only provides adequate coverage for personal items. You have more flexibility than you may realize. For example, you can add temporary living coverage to your policy so that you will be protected while you seek temporary lodging and your rental property is being repaired.

I Can Rely On My Landlord’s Policy

This is incorrect, as your landlord’s coverage does not protect your personal items if an accident occurs. Your landlord’s policy covers any damages to the building. However, you are responsible for covering your belongings.
