If you're a renter, you may not think that renters insurance is important. After all, it's your landlord's job to pay for damages to the property, right? Yes and no. While landlords do typically have insurance policies in place on their properties, these policies might not cover all of your personal belongings or provide enough coverage to help you rebuild if something happens. Furthermore, even if your landlord had an insurance policy that covered everything they needed it would still be up to them whether or not they would make good on those obligations—and who wants to rely on someone else's goodwill? Renters insurance is one area where doing what seems like extra work today will pay off down the road when things go wrong tomorrow."
