If you have recently acquired an apartment or currently have an apartment but are curious about renters insurance, you are in the right place! Today we will be going over a few facts about why it is essential to have renters insurance coverage in Massachusetts.

What exactly is renters insurance anyway?

Renters insurance provides coverage for your personal property against damage and loss. It also insures you incase someone is injured while on your property.

  1. You do not have coverage for your personal items through your landlord’s policy. If your items are damaged, destroyed, or stolen it is your responsibility to replace them.
  2. If there is a major loss and your living space is inhabitable your policy may cover living in another space while the damage is being repaired. 
  3. Many renters insurance policies have medical payments coverage for when a non household member injures themselves on premises.
  4. You can purchase replacement cost coverage on your contents. If there is a loss and you have to buy all new items, you will be compensated for the items after you purchase them and submit your receipts.
  5. You can also have a personal umbrella along with a renters policy, as long as you meet the underlying limits on your auto and renter’s policy. Read more about the advantage of a personal umbrella policy here.
