Boston Real Estate: Apartment rental insurance

As a Boston landlord, I request that my tenants purchase renters insurance.  If your landlord doesn’t require it, you may still want  to obtain it and the price is usually very inexpensive.

What is the purpose of Boston rental insurance? As a renter your personal property is not covered under the Boston landlords insurance policy (in most cases). This policy normally just covers structural damage not personal items that may damaged by flood, fire or stolen.

In the Seinfeld video clip below Jerry’s apartment gets robbed and Kramer can’t understand why Jerry didn’t buy renters insurance.

Now that the Boston September move-ins are mostly completed, did you buy renters insurance?
