Montreal renters insurance FAQs

What is tenant insurance?

Tenant insurance is for people who rent where they live, be it an apartment, a condo or a house.

Renters insurance covers two main things:

  1. Your personal property
  2. Your liability

Most landlords require tenants to carry liability insurance. If you (the renter) cause damage to the building, the property owner (landlord) wants recourse.

How do I lower my renters insurance cost in Montreal?

  2. Raise your deductible – The more you’re willing to pay out of pocket to have repairs done, the less you’ll pay.
  3. Bundle your tenant & car insurance – Companies offer significant savings when you combine your car and residential insurance.
  4. Buy a basic coverage policy – When you spend less, you get less, so enjoy the savings but be aware of the coverage and protections you’re missing out on with bare minimum protection.

Does rental insurance cover theft?

Yes! Every rental insurance policy has 2 components:

When it comes to your personal belongings, your renters insurance contract protects you mainly from fire and theft.

Example: Someone breaks into your car and steals your laptop. Contrary to popular belief, this would NOT be covered under your car insurance, but rather your tenant policy.
