1. Won’t my landlord’s insurance building insurance policy cover my personal property?
The answer to that is no. Your landlord’s insurance policy is only going to cover the landlords interest which is the building and any property that they own inside the building. Without renters insurance you could be left with nothing in the event of a fire or burglary as your landlords insurance will not extend to cover your possessions.
2. Can I be on the same renters insurance policy as my roommate?
This is strongly discouraged as we recommend if you have roommates it is best if you all have separate policies, as you don’t want to be held responsible for someone elses carelessness and negligence due to any loss that might occur.
