Is Renter’s Insurance Really Necessary?
After looking over this list, you may think to yourself, “Well I will probably never have to deal with any of those things,” but take it from us: the renters who are covered are always glad to have insurance when the scenario they thought least likely to arise had actually happened to them. By that same token, landlords take great comfort in knowing their property is covered from any catastrophe. This is why we at Drake Properties require all renters to purchase insurance when or before they move in.
