Are you currently renting a home? Do you need a renter’s insurance policy? The Insurance Shop USA has the policy you need. Renters insurance can protect your belongings in the event of a tragedy and also allow a relocation coverage if you are required to leave your home.
Protecting Your Belongings
Unfortunately, landlords are not required to cover those renting from them and their belonging in policies. If you do not have a policy, then everything you own is at risk. Several tragedies can result in renters losing all of their belongings and have to replace them out-of-pocket, which could be very expensive. The tragedies below are situations that are covered under a renter’s insurance policy.
- Accidental Fires
- Burglary/ Theft
- Structural damage
Accidental fires happen every day in the USA, and while there are methods to prevent, accidents can still happen. In the event of an accidental fire, all of your belongings that are insured can be replaced under a renter’s insurance plan.
Burglary and thefts are also situations in which renters cannot control and most items are not recovered. While you can utilize all prevention from burglaries, unfortunately, theft can still happen. Whether the theft takes place in the home or in your vehicle, if items insured on your policy are stolen, renters insurance will cover these items.
Structural damage is another tragedy that most renters often do not consider. While it is the responsibility of the landlord to maintain the property, sometimes something as simple as a pipe bursting or a structure collapse can require tenants in an apartment building to leave immediately and relocate, causing damage to their items.
If you are forced to relocate due to an accidental tragedy, renter’s insurance can cover the cost of your relocation fees. If you are required to relocate, your landlord is not responsible for finding a place for you or covering the cost. Attempting to replace lost items and pay for temporary relocation can be stressful on a household.
