A renter’s policy can help cover losses due to common perils like theft, fire and smoke, vandalism and water damage from accidental discharge or overflow from certain systems and appliances. In addition to coverage of these common claims, renters insurance can help by reimbursing the policyholder for reasonable increases in living expenses such as the extra cost to live in a hotel or other rental unit when a covered loss makes the rental unit uninhabitable. Renters insurance can also provide liability protection and guest medical coverage in case someone gets injured.
