Rental Insurance: What Is Covered And What Is Not?

The insurance for renters is maybe one of the easiest types of insurances to comprehend because the only thing that you cover with it is your own stuff, which means that you do not need to cover the place that you rent to live. This insurance is also cheap compared to others like a home insurance or car insurance. It is actually one of the cheaper that you can get.

However, even when it is one of the cheaper, there are some regulations to obtain one. There are some examples to explain this; if you live in a zone with a high crime record it will affect your probabilities to get the renter insurance and if you get it, your quotes will certainly be more expensive than the quotes of someone that does not live in a place so dangerous. Also, if you have suffered many robberies, it could affect your possibilities too.

There are some basic aspects that you must know in case you want to get a renter insurance. The HO4 is a fundamental occupant’s policy, it covers you in case you loss your stuff if it is caused by one or several of the next situations: lightning, riot, aircraft, explosion, vandalism, smoke, theft, windstorm or hail, falling objects, volcanic eruption, snow or sleet, weight of ice, 3 categories of water related injuries from home utilities or electrical damage. With this insurance you are also covered for medical payments and basic liability.

You also must know what is covered by the insurance? The only things protected by this insurance are the personal possessions used by yourself and by any other person who lives with you. On the other hand, you must keep in clear what is not covered? Earthquakes (some insurance covers these situations, but you need special coverage for it), animals, power failures of the outside of the rented property, business information, neglect, war, nuclear hazard and intentional loss.

If you currently live in rented property and you are interested in this insurance, you are probably thinking: do I really need to get it? All you have to do is write a list of all the possessions that you have (you will need it in case you need to make a claim). Based on this information, the insurance agent may calculate how much you will need for the insurance.
