Why should landlords require renters insurance?

Renters Insurance protects the renter. It covers the belongings of the renter in the event of fire, tornado or other hazard. That insurance also covers emergency housing for the renter in the event of that emergency, if their rented home is uninhabitable. It
also is liability protection for the renter.

Remember, the property owner has insurance, but only on the structure. Their insurance does not cover any of the resident’s belongings.
