What Does Renters Insurance Cover?
Renters insurance typically provides liability and property damage coverage. The liability portion may help protect against claims of third-party bodily injury or property damage that you or another listed insured on your policy may cause. It may also help pay for medical bills if a guest is injured within your property.
The property damage protection portion of renters insurance helps protects your personal belongings within a rental unit. Your landlord’s insurance policy typically protects the structure of your rental unit. Renters insurance offers two personal property coverage options: replacement cost value or actual cash value. If you insure your personal property at its replacement cost value, you can replace items purchased formerly at today’s prices. If you opt for the actual cash value, you get the replacement cash value minus depreciation at the time of your loss.
Renters insurance typically also pays the reasonable additional costs of living away from your home temporarily if you can’t occupy it due to a fire, severe storm or another insured disaster. Your policy may cover your hotel bills, temporary rentals, restaurant meals and other living expenses up to your policy’s limit.
How Much Renters Insurance Is Required?
The amount of renters insurance you need depends on the value of your belongings and what you want to insure. Generally, there is no required amount since coverage is optional, but you can get a suitable amount of insurance by appropriately valuing your items. Depending on your landlord, however, you may be required to show proof of coverage to sign a rental or lease agreement.
You should inventory your belongings, adding up the cost of everything you would want to replace if it were damaged or stolen. Cataloging your items makes filing a claim easier. If possible, record model numbers, dates and places of purchase. Take photographs or videos of your items and place a copy in a safe place away from your home.
Supplemental Coverage Is Beneficial
Renters insurance doesn’t cover floods, earthquakes or routine wear and tear. You can purchase separate insurance policies for flood and earthquake damage and various other policies, depending on your needs.
