Michigan state law does not require one to have renter’s insurance, but in some instances, some landlords may require it if you are leasing or renting his/her building. One needs to have some coverage as your landlord's homeowner’s insurance is not liable for any personal or property damage in case catastrophe strikes. A typical renter's insurance is designed to protect you, your personal belongings, and your living arrangements after a covered peril.
Renters insurance provides coverage for the loss or damage to property in the home against perils like vandalism, fire, theft, plumbing, electrical malfunctions, and weather-related damage like a hailstorm and volcanic eruptions. It's also important to know that renter’s insurance does not cover earthquakes and floods. Separate coverage is required to cover the two natural disasters.
This type of policy provides substantial discounts for precautions you take to mitigate risks to the insurer. These measures include the installation of fire or burglar alarm systems, sprinkler systems, and fire extinguishers.
