Renters insurance is something not many people understand. It is a personal type of insurance that protects your possessions and assets in a couple of different ways. At Tackett Insurance Inc. in Memphis, TN, our team of experts customize your insurance to what you need and can afford. Our agency has been serving the locals for more than 100 years.
As to whether you need to have renters insurance, neither the state nor the city requires it, but some landlords or management companies may. Always read your lease carefully. But just because it isn’t required doesn’t mean you don’t need it and shouldn’t have it. Less than 50% of renters have a policy and that is needlessly reckless. It is affordable and provides valuable protection.
If your rental was damaged by, let’s just say, a fire, would you be able to afford to replace the damaged items? What if your entire living area was damaged? Could you easily replace all your possessions? If your answer is no, what would you do? If you had renters insurance, you wouldn’t have to worry, you would have the money to replace your possessions.
No one likes to think about being sued, but it does happen. It happens a lot more often than you probably think. Would you be able to pay for legal fees and a potential judgment against you? You could lose all your savings and even go into debt if you don’t have enough saved.
Where would you go if your rental was damaged? Loss of use coverage will help pay for a hotel and temporary rental while your unit is being repaired. It beats moving back home and living in your parent’s basement or a friend’s guest room.
