Home Insurance for Renters in Vancouver BC

When renting a place to live you may be under the false impression that the landlord's insurance will cover your personal possessions and protect you against liability lawsuits. This is, however, not the case. The majority of the time landlords’ insurance policies are not intended to cover the tenant’s personal belongings or liability claims.

To protect yourself and your belonging you should strongly consider purchasing your own home insurance coverage.  Your own renters home insurance will cover you in case your property is damaged by you or others or if it is stolen.  Your home insurance policy will also cover any injuries your guests sustain while on your property as well as any damage you may accidentally cause to your neighbors property.  Fire and water damage are both usually covered by renters home insurance and occur more frequently than most people think.  Remember that you are responsible for the cost of damages to your apartment and all other apartments if you leave the tap running too long and cause a flood.  Renter’s home insurance also often covers any belongings that may be stolen from or damaged in your car.
