Home Renters Insurance

Renter’s insurance is a moderately priced policy, which shelters against losses incurred by damage to personal property and also covers costs related to court proceedings incase an occupant is charged. Home renter’s insurance does not cover actual house structure damages caused by fire or accidents. These costs are covered by insurance policies paid for by the homeowners.

Renter’s insurance policies tend to vary form person to person. These variations may depend upon the value of personal possessions or whether an occupant resides in a high crime locality. If the tenant works out of his home and has expensive office appliances, insurance rates will differ. These policies also cover windstorms, explosions, riots and aircraft or vehicular accidents.

While purchasing a policy, the tenant should be aware of what is covered. This includes personal property that covers personal items such as furniture, clothing and appliances. Policies also cover additional costs incurred by the tenant while housing in a provisional accommodation. These policies should also cover injury and property damage to others and medical reimbursements to pets and people on the property at the time of a mishap.

Renter’s insurance does not cover flood and earthquake related accidents. There are several types of tenant insurance policies. The most commonly used is the HO-4 policy, which is customized to cover property and liability charges. The policy is usually the best choice for tenants of a single-family residence or an apartment.

When people rent an accommodation, the apartment may already be covered under various insurance policies. However, it is important to realize that these policies only cover the apartment or building and not the tenant’s personal valuables. A prevalent wrong notion amongst tenants is that since the house is not owned; there may not be any need for insurance. It is important to understand the need for home renter’s insurance and invest in a policy at all times.
