Do I need renters insurance?

If you are renting an apartment, home, or any other living space, renters insurance is for you. If you own the residence in which you are living, homeowners insurance and condo insurance will most likely be more suitable for you. Finally, if you are a landlord seeking insurance for a rental property, specialty dwelling insurance is most likely what you need.

While a renters insurance policy is not required in Washington state, your landlord may require it as a part of your rental agreement. Regardless, it is highly recommended you carry renters insurance.

What does renters insurance cover?

Your renters insurance policy covers your personal belongings and property in the event they are stolen or damaged, subject to the limits and deductibles you select. The coverage applies even when you are away from home.

For a small additional premium, you can choose to carry full value coverage on your personal property, which ensures that you will be paid the full replacement cost of items that are damaged or stolen without deduction for depreciation.

Protect Yourself and Your Guests

Your renters policy also protects you and your family with personal property coverage and liability coverage against certain claims for which you are liable. Legal defense can also be provided in the event you are sued after a covered loss, subject to the limits you have selected.

In addition, you can select medical payments coverage which will help pay for medical expenses incurred by a visitor who is injured at your residence regardless of fault. Various limits are available. Determining how much coverage you need can be hard to pinpoint. PNW Insurance can help you find the right amount of coverage to suit your insurance needs at a competitive price.

What does renters insurance NOT cover?

While your renters policy can help protect you and your family from many different instances, it does NOT cover damage from flooding, earthquakes, or pests such as termites and bed bugs (check with your insurance company). To be sure you are getting the coverage you need, reach out to one of our renters insurance experts here at PNW Insurance Group.

How much renters coverage do I need?

For instance, if you own a lot of stuff or are often hosting company, it might be a good idea to get more based on your needs.  If you think you don’t own a lot valuable possessions, start adding up the cost of all your clothes, cookware, and electronics and you’ll notice how quickly the number adds up.
