I am insured under my landlord’s insurance.

You may see your landlord’s insurance as sort of an umbrella which will cover your losses during unfortunate accidents such as fire or burglary. However, this is not the purpose of your landlord’s insurance. Your landlord’s insurance usually covers the building only. Unless your landlord has set up a policy to include coverage of his/her renters, you will need to purchase your own renter’s insurance.

The cost of a renter’s insurance policy is too high.

Most renter’s insurance policies are much less than you would pay for car insurance. Your renter’s insurance policy could could range anywhere from $20 – $30 a month. You will have to check with an insurance provider such as Schumacher Insurance Agency in order to obtain an insurance quote that will fit your individualized needs.
