    Understanding House Insurance vs. Tenant Insurance

    While tenants are not usually responsible for paying house insurance, it's important to distinguish between house insurance and tenant insurance. House insurance covers the physical structure and is typically the landlord's responsibility. On the other hand, tenant insurance, such as the one offered by APOLLO Insurance, safeguards your personal belongings and liabilities within the rental property.

    Benefits of Tenant Insurance

    Even if you're renting a house or any other type of unit, tenant insurance offers several benefits. Firstly, it protects your personal belongings, including furniture, electronics, and clothing, against perils like theft, fire, and vandalism. If unexpected damage or loss occurs, tenant insurance steps in to reimburse you, allowing you to replace or repair your belongings without heavy financial burdens.

    Tenant insurance also includes liability protection. In the event of an accident where someone is injured on your rented premises and decides to sue, tenant insurance helps cover medical expenses and legal fees, providing you with financial security and peace of mind.
