The scope of what renters insurance covers is fairly broad. Having it in case of emergency is essential to protecting yourself and your belongings.

What it Covers

While your landlord has his own California property coverage policy, required by CA law, to cover damage to his property, coverage does not extend to the things inside of your Cathedral City apartment. It's vital that you protect yourself in case of emergency. There are a number of categories of emergencies covered by your Cathedral City renters insurance.

Your renters insurance policy is designed to protect the belongings that you keep in your Cathedral City apartment. This policy covers damage to your property caused by fire. In addition to damage done by the fire itself, subsequent water and smoke damage is also covered.

Your policy will pay for those bills after your deductible is met.

What it Doesn't Cover

For the most part, your policy is mostly all inclusive. Many of the things that you think would be covered are, as well as some things that you may never have even thought about. When choosing your coverage, it is important to be aware of what is and isn't covered for full protection. Additional policies can be purchased for the things that aren't covered.

Taking out a separate policy to protect your belongings against earthquake damage is a smart move for renters living in CA.

Flood damage is another type of damage not covered under a typical Cathedral City renters insurance policy. While you may not think an additional policy is necessary if you live in California, if you live in a low lying area, you may want to purchase an additional policy to protect your belongings from floods. Your Cathedral City insurance agent can assist you will selecting additional policies to cover you.

Emergencies, natural disasters and other events can and do occur. As a renter, you may think that you can not protect yourself from these catastrophes. This is not true. Protect yourself with a Cathedral City renters insurance policy.
