Insurance Facts for Renters

Apartment living has many advantages, however, it also carries some of the same risks as homeowners. Please read the following list of possible costly misfortunes which would be your responsibility as an apartment resident.

  • You have a defective electrical extension cord.  It starts a fire that causes considerable damage to the building and all of your possessions.
  • A friend helps you slide out your refrigerator so you can clean behind it and he hurts his back.
  • Your locked car is broken into in the parking area and a camera is stolen. 
  • A pipe leaks under your sink and your apartment is flooded, damaging your furniture and belongings.
  • Your four-year-old hits a playmate with a brick in the apartment yard.  Stitches are required, but the parents have no medical insurance.
  • A burglar breaks your front door lock, or enters through a window, and steals your valuables.
  • A five-year-old leaves a bicycle or toy at the foot of the stairs.  Your next door neighbor falls over the bicycle and is severely injured.
