The Importance of Renter’s Insurance

Shelter Realty, per our lease agreements, requires all tenants to purchase renter’s insurance.  Many tenant’s inquire as to why we require them to purchase rental insurance.  Laurie Yakubik with Farmer’s Insurance has provided the following information about the importance of having renter’s insurance.

HOW RENTERS INSURANCE HELPS COVER YOUR VALUABLES

Imagine a moment you’ve just returned home from a long day at work to find there’s been a fire. Everything you owned has been destroyed: your flat-screen TV, computer, furniture, books, game consoles, CDs, jewelry, collectibles and clothing. Where will you stay until your home is renovated? Who will pay to replace all your belongings? Not your landlord.

A Farmers renters policy can be the answer. It provides coverage to help you to replace your lost or damage items. If you suffer a covered loss, we’ll reimburse you for your lost or damaged items. And if the loss makes your home uninhabitable, we’ll also pay for the additional living costs for hotel, meals and related expenses.

Renters policies are very affordable, generally ranging from $12-$20 each month. For less then a dollar a day, you can have valuable insurance coverage!
