No, a tenant cannot make a claim on the landlord’s insurance. The landlord’s home insurance is just there to insure what the owner has a financial interest in. If your name is not on the deed of the home, you are unable to insure the property and therefore cannot make claims for damage to the home. You are only able to make claims on your own renters policy, which insures your belongings.

I'm not sure how insurance works when someone is renting a property. I want to know if a renter can make a claim on their landlord's policy.
