Answer for "What do I need to know about Renters Insurance, and what does it cover?"

Mary Beth Lynch real estate agent

You might think, "Why do I need insurance, I'm renting?" Well, even though your landlord probably has an insurance policy on your building, you'll need to protect your personal interests too. And it only costs a little to protect a lot. Renter's insurance is less costly than you might think. Your Property - What would it cost to replace the contents in my home? - Do I have an inventory and photographs of my personal possessions? You and Your Guests - What kind of protection do I have against liability. - Will my guest's medical expenses be covered if they are accidentally injured in my home? Your Coverages - What additional coverages are available for my personal property such as: sports equipment, electronic data processing equipment, jewelry or other valuables? - Do I have an inventory and photographs of my personal possessions? - I'm getting married, can I get additional protection to cover wedding presents and other personal property I receive? Your Money - Can I save money if I have my auto insurance with Allstate too? - How can I make my home safer and possibly save money?
