Personal Property Coverage and Renters' Insurance

Personal property coverage gives you protection from accidents related to fire, smoke, covered water, wind, theft, or vandalism – among other things.

Performing a home inventory is a good way to determine how much property coverage you need. Follow this step-by-step checklist to inventory your personal property:

  • List each item, when you acquired it, and the purchase or current value.
  • Total the amounts of these items for a rough idea of what your property is worth.
  • Consider adding photos to your inventory - it could help if you have a claim.

Planning Ahead

A renters insurance policy covers any personal liability of the tenant in case a non-family member gets injured while at your apartment. For instance, if a guest gets electrocuted because of a faulty wire and gets hospitalized, your home insurance company will pay for their medical expenses on your behalf.

Consumers can expect a renters insurance policy to provide three types of coverage: personal property coverage, renters liability insurance, and reimbursement for additional living expenses.
