RENTER’S INSURANCE

A Department of Justice study found that, “The risk of burglary was higher for households living in rental properties,” regardless of whether the renter was in the unit or not. The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) reported that in 2012, homeowners and renters were faced with nearly $10 billion in structure damage. While many renters believe they are protected under their landlord’s plan, this is not the case. Understanding these details and how to select appropriate rental coverage means financial security.
