What does renters insurance cover?

Acuity is different then most insurance companies. In addition to world-class claims service, there are many ways we separate ourselves in renters insurance.

Coverage details

Our renters insurance covers your belongings against things like fire or theft. It also covers medical and legal expenses if a guest were to get injured at your place.


If you need somewhere to stay while damage to your apartment is being repaired, renters insurance covers your expenses.

Cost of renters insurance

Renters policies are one of the most affordable insurance policies out there—typically less than $16 per month. Package renters insurance with your auto insurance to save even more!

Valuable personal property

We know you can’t put a price on Grandma’s pearls. Make sure your fine arts, jewelry, or other collectibles are properly protected by adding this coverage. We can provide coverage for specific items or you can buy increased jewelry and fur limits on a blanket basis.

Replacing your belongings

Adding this coverage to your policy means that if your property is lost, damaged, or stolen, you can buy new items to replace them. That's a new camera even if the one damaged was three years old!

Identity theft

Add an extra layer of protection. Receive one-on-one assistance to restore your identity and reimbursement for any identity theft expenses.

When my wife and I were notified of the fire at our rental property, we were overwhelmed to say the least. [Our adjuster] met us the next day and immediately put us at ease by explaining how we would proceed from there and what to expect in the future. We were very satisfied with the way we were made whole again and would not hesitate to recommend your fine company to our friends in the future.

    • It’s almost Memorial Day—a time to honor the men and women who lost their lives serving our country. For many of us, Memorial Day also marks the unofficial start of the patio party season.
    • One of the hardest things to come home to is a messy house. During the week it seems like stuff starts to accumulate everywhere. Shoes and coats pile up in the entryway. Mail begins to fill up the counter.
    • Do you remember the Disney Channel movie Smart House? It seems like we get closer to that reality every day. As our technology becomes more connected, it isn’t out of the ordinary for your phone to control your TV, adjust the temperature of your home, and even make sure your coffee is hot in the morning.
    • If you live in the north then these past three to four months have seemed like ages. The frigid winter has everyone looking forward to spring break. Even if you live in a warmer area of the country a nice relaxing vacation has to sound great! But what about your home? You don’t want to be stressed or worried about anything going wrong at home while you are away!

    No, your landlord’s insurance only covers the rental building itself, not your belongings or liability for accidents.

    Renters insurance covers loss or damage to your belongings caused by things like fire, theft, smoke, vandalism, explosion, and windstorms. It also covers your liability—things like guest’s medical expenses if an accident happens. 

    Accidents happen. You can end up on the hook for legal fees or medical expenses if someone were to get hurt at your apartment. Renters insurance helps pay for those types of bills. 

    No, your roommate’s insurance policy will cover his or her own possessions, but not yours.  To cover your belongings, you need your own renters insurance policy.
