• Renters insurance helps protect against requiring lawsuits over accidental property damage
• Helps to cover the cost of relocating you in case of accidental or natural disasters
, such as fire or weather-related incidents
• It helps them to find more responsible tenants, as tenants who agree to purchase the insurance are less likely to damage the property
As you can see, from a landlords perspective there are a lot of good reasons why they should ask you to purchase renters insurance. The good news is that there are a lot of advantages to this for you as well!
