Back to School: The Importance of Renters InsurancePosted on: September 11, 2017
With the start of a new school year here, college students will be heading to new living accomodations on and off-campus. If you or your college student is living in off-campus housing, you should consider purchasing renters insurance to protect valuable personal property.
As a tenant in rented property, you are responsible for any losses you encounter due to theft, fire or other damages to your property. You landlord's insurance does not cover you. Having renters insurance can also protect you in the event that somene is injured on your property.
Renters insurance is relatively inexpensive costing anywhere between $10 and $30 per month. Renters can also be bundled with auto insurance which could qualify for discounts.
If you or your child is going back to school this fall, make sure their personal belongings are protected. Call an agent at Byum Insurance to discuss your renters insurance needs.
