What’s covered by North Carolina renters’ insurance?
Personal Property Rental Coverage
Landlords typically insure their building, not your belongings. Don’t risk your personal items from wallet to TV to your favorite art print. Instead, get renters’ coverage to help cover your own items too.
We all know weird weather is becoming more and more common. Peril insurance basically protects you from loss and liability due to those "Acts of God" like lightning strikes, flooding, hurricanes, and fire. Peril insurance can even cover things like broken steam pipes, volcanoes, and airplane impacts. It’s important to review peril insurance with a qualified professional. Your unique location in the state may suggest specific insurance that is tailored to you specifically.
Liability and Medical Coverage
If something happens, you don’t want to have to pay for that accident. Personal liability helps protect you against accidents that happen in your unit to people who don’t live there or because of damage to that person’s property. Medical coverage of this nature can help cover potentially expensive medical bills in the event of an accident such as a trip and a fall on the stairs.
