Renter Insurance - Instant Quote Online
Do you rent out part of your property to a tenant or temporary border? If so, you are probably in need of increased home insurance coverages in order to protect your property and liability. Mackay Insurance in Belleville provides landlord insurance for homeowners who are renting out their property for income.
What is Renter Insurance?
Renter insurance is an extension of your home insurance and is obtained by a landlord (property owner). If you have another person living in your home, such as a temporary student tenant, you need to extend your home policy.
Renters insurance is added to your homeowner policy in order to protect your personal property and liability while you have another person residing on your property.
You Should Obtain Renters Insurance If:
- You rent out part of your home (ie. basement apartment or single bedroom)
- You have 1 or more borders that live with you (ie. a temporary student border)
If you find yourself answering yes to either of the above questions, Mackay Insurance in Belleville highly recommends notifying your insurance holder immediately. This will allow them to assess the additional home insurance coverages that are necessary in order to protect both your property and your liabilities.
What Does Renters Insurance Cover?
