Renters Insurance Quotes
The two of you are living together and engaged to be married. You've entered into the, "What's mine is yours and what's yours is mine" frame of mind. You borrow his bike, his clothes; he plays your CDs and uses your laptop. Sometimes, you leave your engagement ring at home, afraid of losing or damaging or, perish the thought, giving someone the chance to steal it. But you aren't sure if it's covered by your betrothed's home contents insurance. You've only been living together a few months in what used to be exclusively his apartment. Is any of your stuff insured under his policy? It may be time to look up renters insurance quotes.
Now is the time for the two of you to create an actual home inventory, not a guesstimate, of all the personal property in the apartment you'd like to insure against damage or loss. Even though you aren't married yet, some states and insurers will allow you to obtain apartment renters insurance together-one policy, both of your names-while others will make each of you get your own policy.
To create a home inventory, which will help you decide how much home contents insurance you need and make filing a claim easier, add up the cost of everything you would want to replace if it were damaged or stolen. Record model numbers, dates and places of purchase. Take photographs or make a video of these items and place a copy of the inventory in a safe place away from your home.
Bear in mind when you look up renters insurance quotes that most policies have standard coverage limits, i.e., a dollar limit on jewelry that is stolen. Be sure to review these limits and, for expensive jewelry and other valuables you may want to consider buying additional coverage. These additions to your policy provide higher limits and broader coverage.
As for home owners, it isn't difficult for unmarried couples to buy homeowner's insurance together at the same rates offered to the married, as long as both partners own the house. If the title to the property bears only one name, the personal property of the other will not be automatically covered by the policy. The non-owner can perhaps be added as an occupant-check with your insurer about this-or may need to get separate policies when getting renters insurance quotes.
Finally, if you or your mate work out of your home, you may need a special policy to cover expensive equipment, not to mention extra liability coverage if you receive clients in your home. Just one more thing to think about as you merge households and begin to acquire property of real as well as symbolic value.
