The Importance of Tenant Insurance in Alberta (And What it Covers)

Your valuable possessions are at risk. If you’re currently renting a house, basement suite, apartment, etc, without the proper protection – you’re playing with fire. Tenant insurance is a necessity if you care about your belongings. And while there’s no legal requirement forcing you to get it, it is highly recommended and it’s not uncommon for some landlords to require you have it before signing a lease.

But aside from the opinions of prospective proprietors, you should get tenant insurance for your own wellbeing – to ensure the safekeeping of your precious belongings. In the event of a fire, flood, theft, etc, all of your cherished possessions could be gone with no compensation; tenant insurance will protect you as well as your worldly goods.

Tenant Insurance for Moving

Typically, moving is a stressful experience. But that emotional upheaval is often counteracted with a strong sense of excitement for the new. You envision – down to the last detail – where you’ll place all your belongings in your new home, how your new setup will look, etc.

Tenant Insurance for Natural Disasters

To protect yourself, you’ll need to get tenant insurance. By doing so, if anything were to occur – God forbid – you would be justly compensated for your losses. This can go a long way in making an unfortunate situation more bearable.

Tenant Insurance for Theft & Vandalism

Imagine being on a wonderful vacation; enjoying the sun, palm trees, and sandy beaches. And upon returning to your normally quiet home, you find that your place of residence has been ransacked and destroyed with many of your valuables now missing.

This, of course, would be an emotionally traumatic experience regardless of the context. However, it would be even more gut-wrenching if your home wasn’t covered by tenant insurance.

Be sure that your home is properly insured today. Our tenant insurance brokers here at Alpine are professional, experienced, and ready to help.

Tenant Insurance for Other Liabilities

Tenant insurance is here to help cover your liabilities. In the event of a disaster or some form of vandalism that destroys your personal property, you can rest easy knowing that you’re securely protected.

Without such protection, the valuable items and possessions you’ve taken a lifetime to acquire will be gone without any form of compensation. Don’t let that be you.
