Because the economy is booming year-round and the community of Charleston, SC is always lively, college students, young professionals, and others relocating find it a great place to rent while they get established in their career. Even if you are not sure where you want to put down roots, there are lots of apartments and single-family homes in the area to rent while you decide. One of the best things you can do as a renter is protected yourself with renter’s insurance from B&A Insurance LLC.
Since those living in rented dwellings do not own the property, renter’s insurance is designed to protect your personal property that you bring with you when you rent a home or apartment. It is not required by South Carolina, but many landlords and leasing agreements require some form of renters insurance when agreeing to rent the property.
One of the biggest questions around renter’s insurance is what is covered in the event of a tragedy. When you first build your policy, you let your agent know what items you have supplied:
These are some of the most expensive items that you have to replace if your home is damaged or broken into. You can also list other valuable items on your policy like jewelry, electronics, art, and anything else that is valuable.
Should the property you are renting need to be renovated, you can have your relocation expenses covered with your renters' insurance. This includes things like hotel expenses, food, gas, and anything else associated with your displacement. Make a claim on your policy and you will be reimbursed for these costs.
