Although almost half of Indiana residents rent their homes, many of them do not purchase renters insurance because they assume their property is covered under their landlord's policy. This can be a costly assumption on the part of the renter because the landlord’s policy only covers the building, not individual renter’s personal property. If a natural disaster, fire, or other even a water leak causes damage to the building the landlord is covered. However, without renters insurance, any belongings damaged or destroyed by the fire, water, or other disasters, are not subject to be replaced.
It is the responsibility of the renter to have their own policy covering their personal property. Many professional housing firms will require Indiana renters to have an insurance policy in effect before moving in. These types of policies cover coverage for possessions as well as liability coverage if someone is injured inside your residence. In general renters insurance will include personal property and liability as well as loss of use. If liability is part of the policy it will cover medical payments to the party injured at your residence. As well as damage you may cause to another person's property.
Each policy is unique but Associated Insurance Group of Indiana Renters Insurance can make sure you are covered for the following:
