Renting a house, townhome, or apartment just got a little more complicated. Oregon law now requires landlords to request renters insurance from tenants. A renters policy covers more than one may expect. Not only does it protect your property, but it provides liability coverage in case you injure someone else arising from a personal activity. For example, if you break an enormous window or hit someone in the back of the head while golfing. It also covers the damage to the structure if you set a boiling pot of oil on the stove and walk away. Since rental units are often attached, the fire might spread to other apartments. Who would be responsible for the damage or injury from the fire? You would. That’s why the property manager will require you to have insurance. Call us for a quote or complete this online form.
