4 Risks Renter's Insurance Protects You From, Dumas, Texas

Many renters assume that their landlord’s property insurance policy also covers their own personal possessions in the case of a natural disaster or serious structural problem, only to find themselves paying for damages out of pocket if something goes wrong. If you don’t own your own home, a good renter’s insurance policy provides crucial protection against an extensive range of threats, including property damage and expensive lawsuits.

4 Reasons to Invest in Renter’s Insurance 

1. Storm Damage

Serious storms, including hurricanes and tornadoes, can be incredibly destructive, completely wiping out everything you own. If you fall victim to one of these potentially catastrophic acts of nature, your renter’s coverage will pay for all your property damage, replacing everything from your electronics and furniture to family heirlooms and kitchen utensils.

2. Fire Damage

3. Theft & Vandalism

Your insurance policy protects you from much more than natural disasters and accidents. The standard offer, for instance, includes coverage for losses due to break-ins and vandalism—although you might need to get an additional ride if you have especially valuable items like artwork and jewelry.

4. Liability Suits

Even if you rent, you’re legally obligated to provide a safe environment for everyone who has a right to be there. If a guest trips on a cluttered stairway, your renter’s insurance will shield you from the financial consequences, as well as any damages accidentally caused by you or your family members.
