Many renters in Boise, ID like not being tied down to a particular place. They are not responsible for a mortgage, taxes, home repairs, and home maintenance costs because the homeowner pays for all of that. However, one expense that renters should never forget is renter’s insurance. Every renter should purchase renter’s insurance from Fuhriman Insurance Agency.
Homeowner’s Insurance Won’t Cover Everything
Suppose something goes wrong at your rental unit. Maybe there’s a fire or a bad storm. What happens if the home is a total loss? The landlord, with his insurance, can pay to repair the house or apartment. His insurance will repair damages and replace appliances that were destroyed. However, his insurance will not cover the loss of your possessions. Everything that you have in the home, your furniture, your jewelry, or your electronics, will not be replaced by the homeowner’s insurance. Only the structure itself is covered by the landlord’s insurance policy.
Burglary or Vandalism
If you have a break-in, the homeowner’s insurance policy will only cover the repairs needed to the home. So broken glass, splintered doors, or vandalized walls will be repaired. But, this insurance policy will not cover the loss of your possessions in the event of a burglary. All of the money that you have invested in your possessions could be lost if you do not have renter’s insurance. You will have to pay out of your own bank account to replace these objects.
Loss of Use Coverage
If the home is damaged to the point that you cannot live in it until repairs are made, what will you do for a place to live? Some renter’s insurance policies will provide "loss of use" coverage to provide you a place to stay until your rental unit is available, keeping you from having to scramble to find a place to live for several weeks.
