Protected Against the Unexpected? Insurance - Home - Renting - Business

The North Shore Emergency Management Office staff and volunteers respond to several emergency evacuations each year - most of these are house and apartment fires. Often, those impacted by these events do not have insurance to help them with the financial challenges that follow after an emergency.

Do You Really Need Tenants Insurance?

The short answer is yes. There are a few really good reasons for having insurance.

you are legally responsible – for any harm you cause to any part of your building and to others who live or visit there. Yikes! If your faulty toaster oven starts a fire that damages not only your apartment, but also the entire complex, you may have to pay out a lot of money.

Then there are your possessions. You might not think that you have much of real value, but what if you had to replace them all at once, due to fire or water damage.When you consider what it would cost to replace everything, monthly insurance premiums may look pretty good by comparison.
