Tenant and Apartment Insurance

You don't have to own your residence to qualify for home insurance. In fact, renter's insurance - also known as tenant insurance - is a savvy method of protecting your investment. 

Renter's Insurance Explained

When you hear the term home insurance, you most likely think of the big-ticket items, such as the water pipes, large kitchen appliances, or the actual building itself. As a renter, your landlord most likely carries insurance for these items.

However, your landlord's coverage won't cover your personal belongings, such as furniture, electronics, or jewelry. That's where renter's insurance comes in. It provides coverage for your personal belongings and offers additional benefits like personal liability protection and tenant's legal liability. In the event of damage or theft, having your own renter's insurance policy ensures that you're financially protected.

Accidents can happen inside your rented home, and without your own policy, you could be held liable for any injuries or damages that occur. Additionally, if the building or its structural integrity is damaged during your rental agreement, the landlord's insurance won't cover your potential liability for repair or renovation costs. With tenant insurance, you have the financial protection you need in such situations.

Some examples of dwellings where renter's insurance is recommended include:

  • Stand-alone rented dwellings
  • Short-term rentals
  • Multi-unit residential buildings
  • Rented residential property with commercial occupancy
  • Rented dwellings with absentee landlords
  • Rooming houses and student rentals
  • Condos rented to others

Types of coverage available

If you currently rent your home, consider the following coverage options:

  • Named perils coverage
  • Contents or major appliance coverage
  • Replacement cost
  • Rent or rental value insurance
  • Sewer backup coverage
  • Earthquake coverage

You also may be eligible for discounts on your renter's insurance policy if you have a newer dwelling, monitored alarm systems, or sprinklers.
