Protect your Dwelling with Massachusetts Renters Insurance
As a renter in Massachusetts, did you know that your landlord can require you to purchase your own renters insurance policy with sufficient coverage for damage or loss of your household goods? Whether required or not, renter’s insurance makes sense, especially since most Massachusetts landlords’ insurance policies don’t cover your household goods.
As a renter, you’re subject to many of the same personal property risks as a homeowner. In Massachusetts that means severe weather damage from blizzards, coastal flooding, power fluctuations that could damage your electronic devices, fire and subsequent water damage, theft and other threats. When looking for renters insurance, it’s smart to find an agent that understands your needs and risks as a Massachusetts renter, and can help you determine the replacement value of the goods you have at risk.
You may be tempted by advertisements for online renters insurance, but be aware that a generic policy may not cover the risks you’re likely to face in your specific area. Your local Bearingstar agent will see that your coverage is just right for your situation, guide you in documenting what you have and suggest ways to reduce your risk. Shouldn’t you have an agent who lives where you live?
