Pickering Renter’s Insurance

Your landlord might have insurance that protects the building in which you reside, however, it’s important to know, this insurance won’t cover your personal property.  Typically, a landlord will require renters to have insurance as a rental condition in the lease.

If you cause damage to any part of your building, as a renter, you are legally responsible for any unintentional harm caused to the property. If you accidentally start a fire, whether it’s from a faulty appliance or from an unattended candle, which results in damage not only your apartment but the entire complex, you may have to pay for the damage to your unit and the rest of the complex.  If your clothing, furniture or electronics are destroyed by fire or water damage, replacement costs, especially having to replace them all at once, will add up quickly.   Not only will Pickering renters insurance protect your personal items, it will also give you help with temporary housing and liability protection for people on your property.

Once you determine your need for renters insurance, we can provide you with options to help you choose the best policy – get covered today!

Shared Living Space – It’s Not All About You

The building owner could charge you for the cost of the damages, without insurance it would come out of your pocket.

Customized Protection

Water Coverage

Is it safe to assume that your landlord will pay for water damage to your rented space?   Determining who is liable for property water damage can be difficult, as it depends on the exact cause of damage.  If the water damage occurred because your toilet overflowed or a pipe in your kitchen burst, the claim will go through your renter’s insurance policy.  However, water damage that originated from an adjoining unit, whether it was due to a leaky roof or a neighbor’s overflowing washing machine, the situation can be problematic.  Did you know that almost $0.70 cents of every $1 paid out in claims goes toward paying for water damage?  Ask yourself, has my insurance company clearly explained my water coverage to me? If not, maybe it’s time to find a new provider. Call or click to get a quote.

Perfect Fit

As you grow professionally so do the assets in your home, unless you have made some sort of change to your policy, it is likely that you still have that same basic coverage.  When you initially purchased your condo, you probably only required basic coverage for property insurance.  Admittedly, most insurance companies do basic very well.  Outlining what you need in 200 words on a website would be impossible because what you require is so individual to you. Taking a few moments to connect with one of our experts can ensure that you have policy tailored to your needs at a price you can afford.  Call or click to get a quote.
