I rent an apartment â why do I need tenants' insurance?
It is a common misconception that renters do not need insurance of their own. It could also be a very expensive misconception. Your landlord has a commercial property insurance policy to protect his or her building but you need tenant insurance to protect your personal property.
If there was a fire in your building that affected your suite (think smoke and water damage), or if there was a break-in, your landlordâs interest (the building) would be covered but your personal possessions would not be.
Also, if you were to cause damage to your suite by leaving a tap running while you were out or by starting a fire, your landlordâs insurance company would quickly respond to repair the damage. That company would also pursue you â probably sue you â for the damages you caused. With a tenantâs insurance policy, you would automatically have at least $1 million in liability coverage for such a situation. Your possessions would also be covered for a number of perils, including theft, fire and vandalism. Itâs affordable coverage.

Do you live in a condo? Moving to one?
Anyone who lives in a condo has to have liability insurance to cover them for any property claim they cause by being negligent â itâs clearly stated in your condo association agreement. If you accidently damage the hallway wall while youâre moving, or if you inadvertently leave a tap running and the condo below yours is damaged, your policy will respond to cover the cost of the damages youâve caused in the event you are sued.
Fortunately, liability coverage isnât the only benefit of your condo insurance policy. Your personal belongings? The new flooring you installed in your condo? The new window coverings you decided on? Theyâre covered under this policy as well, under the heading of personal property, and improvements and betterments. Should these contents of your condo be damaged, by fire or smoke for example, your insurance policy would respond to repair and/or replace these items.
If you live in a condo, you have to have it â might as well have the best. Just contact us for a quote.
