Welcome to Tenants Insurance with Oracle RMS provided by Agile Underwriting Solutions.

For all tenants looking for a place to rent, there are typically five steps to the process. First, set a price range and make a budget. Second, choose a location. Next, begin the search and take a look at what could be the potential home then make the decision. Lastly, start packing!

Now, it may seem like a straightforward guide in looking for a rental home, however, all tenants should consider adding tenant insurance to their to-do list. Oftentimes, landlords may require the tenant to have tenant insurance as an agreement when they apply to rent their property.

 

WHAT IS TENANTS INSURANCE?

Tenants insurance, which is also known as renters insurance, is a property insurance that provides coverage for a tenants' belongings, liabilities, and in certain cases, their living expenses in the event of loss. Tenant insurance is for individuals renting a single-family unit (home, apartment, condo etc). In addition, all tenants must know that they are not covered under their landlords’ home insurance, despite them living under their property. With how inexpensive it is to set up a tenants policy, as well as how clear-cut the coverages apply to protect your living situation, Tenants insurance has become a staple in the renting industry. 

 

HOW TO GET STARTED

Tenants insurance premiums start from $17 monthly, with additional limits available for jewelry, computers and pets (or any other scheduled valuables you may have in possession of the rented space).

Types of Housing for Rent in Canada

Apartments:

An apartment for rental varies from a basement apartment, walk-up units in low-rise buildings to units located in buildings with elevator access. It has a variety of amenities that can vary from a single onsite washer and dryer, full laundry rooms, common rooms and fitness facilities.

House:

House rentals can include a townhouse, duplexes, semi-detached and single-detached houses. A house rental typically provides more space than most apartments and often provides access to outdoor spaces such as a patio, garden and parking.

Rooming House:

 Rooming houses are particularly shared housing with both short-term (week-to-week) and longer-term rental options. Many rooms have their own refrigerator for a tenant’s personal use. This type of housing is typically more for students living away from home.
