Why Insist that your Tenants have Insurance?

REDUCE CLAIMS

Studies show that 30% of all building insurance claims are caused by tenants. When you consider that roughly 75% of tenants do not have tenant insurance, that is a lot of claims that the landlord's own insurance policy ends up paying for. If all tenants carried their own insurance, landlords would have fewer claims against their policies and their premiums would go down.


IMPROVE YOUR TENANTS

The top landlords in Canada now insist on tenant insurance. If they are turning away the tenants who refuse or cannot afford to spend $12/month on this protection, do you want to be the landlord attracting these tenants to your building?


INFORM YOUR TENANTS

Many tenants falsely believe that it is the landlord's responsibility to pay for any damage to their possessions when there is a fire or other major building damage. Insisting on tenant insurance affirms that fact that you are not responsible for their property or belongings.


PROTECT YOUR TENANTS

Tenant insurance is the only way for tenants to recover from the destruction of their apartment and belongings. It also provides them with valuable legal liability coverage should they accidentally cause damage to your building. Although they don't realize it, all tenants need this coverage and you are in the best position to help them understand why.
