As a renter, you need to protect yourself and your belongings, especially when your landlord’s insurance won’t.
What is tenant insurance?
Your own tenant or rental insurance (as it’s often called) will provide protection for the things not covered by your landlord’s building insurance. When you have tenant insurance, you protect yourself from risk or loss associated with your belongings, your personal liability, and damages that occur to your property.
Why do you need it?
Your landlord’s insurance will not protect your belongings or your personal liability. For a small monthly fee, tenant insurance will protect you and your possessions and give you invaluable peace of mind.

What is covered with renters insurance?
Coverage for the contents and personal items in your rental (furniture, clothing and sporting goods).
Liability of others
Covers you against lawsuits for bodily injury or property damage that you or family members — and, in some cases, pets — may cause to other people.
Loss of use
A safety net for additional expenses over and above your normal living expenses while you are unable to live in your rental.
Other coverage options may also be included and are not limited to what has been indicated.
