Do I need to show my proof of renters insurance to my landlord?

My landlord wants me to get renters insurance for my apartment. Do I have to show proof of this insurance to him?

If they require you to carry renters insurance, they typically require you to show proof to them that you are carrying this coverage. An easy way to show proof to your landlord is to list them as an “”additional interest”” or “”interested party”” on the policy. This means that they will be notified by mail if the policy is active, if it has been canceled, or if it has been renewed at the end of your term.
