Renters Insurance

Renting a house or flatting with friends? Looking for a renters insurance policy to protect your own belongings? Max Insurances is here to help! Read on to find out more.



What is renters insurance?


For a lot of tenants, insurance seems like an extra cost that could be avoided. However, think about all the things you value in the property you are renting. Are you able to afford to replace them out of your own pocket if the unexpected happens? Some renters might think they are covered by the insurance policy for the building. Unfortunately, most landlords only have insurance that covers the physical structure and any of the landlord’s possessions, which leaves everything of yours – that’s why you need your own policy to protect your belongings.


Renters insurance, also called tenants insurance, is designed to cover your items inside your apartment or rental home, including things like your mobile devices, electronics, furniture and clothing. It might also extend to cover your personal belongings in your driveway, garage or your car. What’s more, it’s worth noting that a comprehensive policy may also protect you against loss, fire or water damage you cause to the property, so you have nothing to worry about while renting.
