If you are renting a room, apartment, or other space you want to ensure that you are covered. That is where renters insurance comes in. In most cases your landlord probably has commercial insurance that covers the building where you are residing. However, this policy would not cover your belongings. You want to ensure that in the event of an accident your possessions are covered.
Let us look at the importance of having renters insurance:
