Is renters insurance required in Texas?

Texas is a young state compared to some others in the country. It is also very popular and has people moving there in droves. Luckily, Texas has a lot of rentals so that people can move and find a place to stay easily. At Allied Insurance Agency in Amarillo, TX, we are independent insurance agents who offer not just home insurance, but renters insurance and we are happy to explain all the benefits to our customers. 

Renters Insurance Facts

In Texas, renters insurance is not required by the state; however, it may be required by a landlord or management company. You will know whether it is required when you sign your lease. 

You may wonder why anyone should require you to have renters insurance. What does it have to offer? Doesn’t your landlord or management company have insurance? When it comes to your landlord or management company, they surely do have insurance, but it will not help you if the rental is damaged. They are only insured for their property, not yours. 

Renters insurance offers quite a lot of coverage for renters. It protects your content, offers liability coverage, and provides loss of use protection. These make a really big difference if your rental is hit by a covered hazard. 

Have you ever considered how you would replace all the things you own if, for instance, you had a fire in your rental? Imagine having to start again with only the clothes on your back. Would you have the finances to be able to do that? Where would you stay if your rental was so damaged you couldn’t live there? How would you pay for injuries to someone injured at your rental or by a member of your family away from the rental? 

If any of these are difficult, renters insurance is an option to consider. Contact Allied Insurance Agency in  Amarillo, TX to discuss renters insurance.
