After you hear the statistics you will know why I ask you to forward this article to anyone you know who rents. It does not matter if the place they rent is an apartment, condo or house.
According to an April 2016 survey for insuranceQuotes.com carried out by Princeton Survey Research Associates International, nearly 70 percent don’t have renter’s insurance. Some of the reasons given for not have renter’s insurance include: “My Landlord has insurance, Renter’s Insurance is too expensive, my home has good security, I don’t have enough property to insure, I don’t understand renters insurance and I don’t know where to get it.”
Let Spencer Insurance help you. Renters insurance cost can be as low as $100 depending on where you live and how much coverage you choose. Your landlord’s policy does not cover your belongings. In fact we are finding more apartment complexes that require a renter to have renter’s insurance so the renter knows the landlord’s policy does not cover them.
Renter’s insurance not only covers your contents it also provides liability insurance.
When my son Brian was renting an apartment while in grad school he purchased a renter’s insurance policy from his Dad as instructed. J He was glad he did. There was a fire from the apartment next door that caused smoke and water damage to his apartment. Even though he thought his contents did not amount to much since most were hand me downs, he found that when he had to clean and/or replace items after the fire it ended up costing him $15,000. He was glad he had insurance to reimburse him. Check out Brian’s story. Nice to know that your children follow their father’s advice.
