Renters Insurance is an important part of successful property management business. It has some valuable benefits for both tenants and landlords providing coverage of the tenant’s property in cases of theft, fire, water damage, explosion, and liability. While the benefits to the tenant are substantial, the value that Renters Insurance provides to the landlord is also massive as it covers costs of damages to the leased property caused by the tenant.

Why do Landlords need to require Renters Insurance?

Requiring tenants to buy and maintain Renters Insurance as a requirement of the lease is allowed and widely used today. Doing so certainly benefits both the landlord and the tenant. Requiring Renters Insurance is in the landlord’s best interest because it is a tool for:

  • maximizing your rental profits;
  • avoiding legal liability being placed on the landlord;
  • supporting good relationships with renters.

Meaning, having this third party coverage keeps your relationship with your tenants healthy, even at times when a large loss might happen. This happens when disputes over coverage costs and can be completely avoided by having insurance in place.
