Can a landlord make a claim on my renters insurance?

I've been told that I need renters insurance to secure a condo I'm interested in. Can the condo's landlord make a claim on my policy?

No, a landlord cannot make a claim on your renters insurance. They can ask to be listed as an additional interest on the policy, but that just means they will be notified if the policy is canceled. Similarly, a tenant is unable to make a claim on the landlord’s insurance policy.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
