NY Renters Insurance

Do you need renter’s insurance?

Thought you were covered by your landlord’s insurance? Think again. You’ll need renter’s insurance to protect your belongings from perils like theft, vandalism, fire, and falling objects the minute you begin renting. According to recent estimates, nearly two-thirds of the 81 million people who rent their homes are uninsured for their contents or for any liability arising out of their tenancy. Don’t be a statistic – get covered today!

NY Renters insurance assures you that you're protected against the damage or loss of personal property when you rent an apartment or house. Your landlord may have insurance that protects the physical building in which you reside, but this insurance will not cover your personal property. In fact, it's not at all uncommon for landlords to require the purchase of renters insurance prior to renting or leasing.

Not only will NY renters insurance protect your personal items, it will also give you help with temporary housing and liability protection for people on your property. NY Renters insurance can help protect you in case of a liability lawsuit against you. This could occur in a situation where you are held responsible for:

  • Injury to another person
  • Damage to another person's property(whether the incident occurred within your rented residence or elsewhere)

Once you determine your need for renters insurance, knowing your options will help you choose the best policy.  We offer a free home inventory checklist in our free reports section to help you determine what you have before a loss occurs.  This can also be very helpful when determining how much insurance you will need.
