IF you are renting a property then you will need renters insurance providing you have possessions and contents worth anything at all.
Whatever you own and bring into a property is your own. It is your responsibility to protect it against theft, fire or any sort of loss. It is the property ownerÂs Â your landlord Â responsibility to ensure the building is insured and protected.
Most people will have anything from Â£5000 – Â£50,000 worth of contents that they bring to a property Â some more or less than this as well. Just add up the cost of your clothes, computers, TVs, mobile phones, shoes, food in the fridge etc. Before you know it you are into thousands of pounds. Not many people could easily accept a total loss of all of their possessions in a fire and simply go out and buy new kit the next day from their current account or savings.
And even if you can afford to replace everything, financially it is a big risk because the cost of renters or tenants insurance is relatively low. It should cost around Â£100-Â£150 for the year depending on your circumstances. That makes it a smart thing to put in place rather than risk thousands in loss.
The market for tenants insurance is wide and competitively fought over by many major insurers in the UK. There are all sorts of price offers and guarantees that can muddy the waters so you will want to keep the confusion to a minimum. There is also no price comparison for this sort of insurance on the mainstream websites such as Supermarket, Confused etc.
There is a way that you can compare prices though Â through The Property Insurer. You simply fill in an online form that takes around 90-seconds to complete and asks the basic risk and contact information that will allow a broker to see how competitive they can be. Hit the send button and then sit back and wait for the price comparison quotes to be returned to you.
Your details will go to three brokers, all specialists in renters insurance, and they will supply you their best prices. They are likely to call you to talk through the quote or ask additional information, as this is what allows them to reduce cost. Answer them honestly and once you have a couple of prices youÂll be able to make a call on the best one for you Â suitable cover and cost being the main factors.
ThatÂs how you get low cost renters insurance in around 15-minutes Â and you can buy straightaway with same day cover.
