As a member of a group insured with The Personal, you can get all-risk tenant insurance to protect your apartment against most accidental damage and liability coverage to protect you in the event of injury to others or damage to their property.
Protect your property with all-risk insurance
When you take out group tenant insurance with us, your apartment and personal property are protected against common risks like fire, theft and vandalism. You’re also covered if a pipe suddenly bursts or a household appliance (such as a dishwasher) breaks and causes water damage in your home.
Our all-risk insurance also covers:
- Accidental damage (such as a paint spill on carpet)
- Your personal property stored in detached private structures (such as sheds)
- Additional living expenses in the event of major damage following an insured loss(i.e., what you pay out of pocket if you have to relocate after a fire while your apartment is being repaired)
While Annie was on vacation, thieves broke into her apartment and took off with her computer and a number of personal items. The loss was estimated at $4,355. Fortunately, Annie had tenant insurance that covered theft. She got the money back to replace her belongings and only had to pay her deductible!
Protect your assets with liability coverage
Liability coverages protect you if you accidentally injure another person or damage their property. Here are some examples:
- Your bathtub overflows and causes water damage to your downstairs neighbour’s apartment
- You leave a candle burning, which sparks a fire that damages your apartment and surrounding units
- Your dog bites a houseguest
Without this coverage, your finances could be put in jeopardy if you’re sued. Most renters opt for $1 million in liability insurance, though under certain conditions you can choose up to $5 million.
