How Does a Renters Insurance Program Help My Community?
- Renters insurance allows the tenant to be financially responsible, which reduces the number of nuisance claims filed on the property owner’s insurance.
- Having a community where a number of residents participate in a renter’s insurance program could help you save money on your general liability policy.
- Property managers can file claims directly against the tenant’s policy, with a company the property manager already works with.
How Does a Renters Insurance Program Benefit My Tenant?
- Tenants will be able to be reimbursed up to their policy limits, for covered losses.
- Replacement cost on all contents with a complimentary qualified ENERGY STAR appliance upgrade.
- Guest Medical Payments – for guests who may injure themselves while visiting.
- Loss of Use – for living expenses if the unit becomes uninhabitable due to a covered loss.

- One policy covers all roommates and boarders who live at the residence and are listed on the lease or rental agreement on the date of loss.
