Tenant Insurance in Québec

Tenant Insurance

Rest Easy with Secure Tenant Insurance

Tenant insurance, also known as renters’ insurance, provides necessary coverage for tenants in an apartment, home, or other dwellings. With the right tenant insurance policy in place, you can rest easy knowing you are financially protected against major losses, damage to your belongings, and potential legal costs.

How Does Tenant Insurance Protect You?

 Tenant insurance protects you against personal liability and provides essential compensation when your personal items are damaged or stolen. Often tenants believe that their personal stuff is secure because their landlord has insurance —but this is false. 

Tenant insurance also covers third-party liability. If a visitor is hurt while visiting your rental and decides to take legal action, a tenant insurance policy could pay for all, or part, of your pricey lawyer fees. Your renter’s policy may also include additional living expenses if you need to temporarily live elsewhere when your rented property becomes unlivable due to a covered claim.

Why Should You Get Tenant Insurance in Québec?

Tenant insurance fills in the gaps in your landlord’s policy and most importantly shields you against liability claims, which are a huge expense. Although your landlord already has insurance that protects the building you live in (building structure), it does not cover your personal items.

You may also discover that some landlords require tenant insurance before you sign a lease. As a renter, accidents happen beyond your control, so protecting your personal items and your bank account is critical.

FAQ

It is not mandatory to get tenant insurance in Canada; however, it pays to have a secure tenant insurance policy as necessary protection for you and your belongings.

Tenant insurance is relatively cheap in Québec, as in many other provinces in Canada. The cost of your monthly premium will depend on where you live, the value of your insured belongings, your claim history, and more.

Depending on your policy, your insurance company can either compensate you with the replacement cost of the item, which is the dollar amount to replace the item today, or the actual cash value—the value of the item, taking depreciation into account.

There are several situations where renter’s insurance will not kick in and you (the renter) will be responsible for paying any losses. For example, if your apartment or home rental has bed bugs/pests, you are responsible for the replacement or cleaning of your personal items (furniture, clothes, etc.).

Tenant insurance in Canada also does not typically cover flood damage. Ask one of our experienced brokers for advice on what is covered under your personalized insurance policy.
