Renter's Insurance Text to Describe Photo

Your landlord's insurance only protects his/her property. The National Association of Insurance Commissioners (and most landlords) encourage or require all renters to consider purchasing renter's insurance because insurance offers important protection against:

  • loss or damage to your personal property
  • accidents on "your" property that injure other people
  • damage to other people's property

Where can you purchase renter's insurance?

If you already have automobile insurance you may be eligible for a discount from the company if you purchase your renter's policy from same company. The telephone directory and the web will have additional resources.
