Renters Insurance

Coverage Options

We require all residents to carry liability insurance of $100,000 for damages to the landlord’s property during their lease term. Choose between renters or liability insurance through our easy and flexible options and programs.

Option 1
Renters Insurance

Renters insurance not only meets your lease requirement but will also protect your personal belongings from theft or damage. There are two options for renters insurance coverage:

  1. Enroll in our renters insurance program through FolioGuard™ Renters Insurance (learn more)
    • Comprehensive coverage is purchased conveniently, fast, and secure within the same online portal you use to pay your rent
  2. Sign up for renters insurance on your own and provide proof of coverage

Option 2
Liability Insurance

Liability insurance is an easy and low-cost way to meet your lease requirement but it does not cover your personal belongings. You pay the monthly premium together with your rent.

  1. Enroll in our tenant liability insurance program through FolioGuard™ Smart Ensure (learn more)
    • Lessees who do not provide proof of renters insurance by the day of move-in, will be automatically enrolled in our tenant liability insurance program
