Renter's insurance is a type of property insurance for tenants that provides them with protection for their personal belongings inside of a rental property. It is different from a standard home insurance policy as it does not provide coverage for the actual home itself. Instead, it offers protection for the renter's contents which may include furniture, clothing, electronics, etc.
A renter's policy may also provide reimbursement for living expenses if the home you are renting is damaged due to a covered peril and you must find other arrangements while it is being repaired.
