Protecting Renters in Knoxville, TN
Renters insurance is a form of property insurance that covers a policyholder’s belongings and protects against liabilities within a rented property. This type of insurance applies to individuals who rent or sublet a home, apartment, condo, or other dwelling. For college students, renters insurance can be vital; it keeps the costs of replacing personal belongings minimal or non-existent and allows students to focus on studying. If ever a student has vacate a dwelling temporarily, living expenses during the interim can also be covered.

Coverages and a Policy Tailored to You
Depending on your policy, your renters insurance will pay to replace items using one of two methods: Actual Cash Value (ACV) or Replacement Cost. ACV insures your belongings up to the amount that they are currently worth, while Replacement Cost pays for the expenses of replacing your belongings with new ones. If you’re a college student, Replacement Cost is critical option, as exposures for which you’re not responsible or at fault often arise. A stove left on, a pipe plugged up, and an unruly visitor can cause damages, and the costs of these damages are not things for which you should be responsible for paying.
