Liability Insurance

  • Liability Insurance covers your legal liability for negligence that results in bodily harm to someone else, or damage to his or her property.
  • It also covers situations like accidental cooking fires and burst pipes, due to inadvertently letting your unit get too cold.
  • Without adequate liability insurance, you might be expected to pay the entire cost of re-building a burned premise or repairing the plumbing.
  • Tenants must obtain their own liability coverage. A landlord's liability coverage does not protect you.
  • A lease may also specify the specific dollar amount of liability coverage required by the Tenant and your lease may require you to provide the Landlord with proof of insurance.
