All of us at Paradiso Insurance would like to congratulate all the recent college graduates! Now that you have moved off campus, where will you go? While some may be moving back home with their parents for the time being, others may decide to rent a home or apartment with friends.
If you are a first-time renter, there is a lot to learn. You may be excited about decorating and living with friends, but there are plenty of other things to worry about, from the monthly bills to renters insurance. Connecticut graduates, read on!
First, it is important to figure out a budget. If you do not keep track of expenses, you may soon find that you will not be able to make month’s rent. The last thing you want is an angry landlord banging on your door!
It is also important to get your renters insurance squared away. YES, you need renters insurance! Many first-time renters make the mistake in thinking that their landlord will have them completely covered in the event of a disaster, break-in or accident. However, this could not be any further from the truth. Yes, your landlord will have THEIR building and property protected with landlord’s insurance. However, their policy is not responsible for your personal possessions, belongings, or liability. It is up to you to protect yourself.
