A quick overview of renter’s insurance

Posted by Emily Park on Feb 16, 2018 9:26:31 AM

There are many perks to renting an apartment rather than owning a home: no yard work, no property taxes, and someone else to handle (and pay for!) maintenance work. You won’t need to worry about insuring the property, since the apartment complex already has a policy in place.

You'll still need to have a plan for if an accident or natural disaster causes damage to your personal possessions.

You'd be on the hook for the cost of replacing those personal items.

That’s where a renter’s insurance policy comes to the rescue!
