Apartment Insurance is one of the most overlooked and inexpensive forms of insurance. It is important to understand that your landlord's insurance policy only provides coverage for damage to the building or for damages that result from his/her negligence. Your landlord's insurance does not provide: personal property coverage for your contents in the case of a loss (such as a fire); or legal liability coverage for injuries or damage suffered by others on your property or for which you may be held responsible.
Renters insurance is very similar to a homeowners policy without the dwelling coverage, since renters do not own the building they live in.
If you took the time to add up what it would cost to replace all of your stuff, you would probably be surprised at how much it's really worth.
