Does my name have to be on the lease to qualify for renters insurance?

"I'm living in a shared apartment with a roommate. His name is on the lease, but mine isn't. Do I still qualify for renters insurance, even if my name isn't on the lease?


Even if your name is not on a lease, you can still qualify to purchase renters insurance. In any situation where you are living in a home that you do not own, you can purchase renters insurance to make sure you and your personal belongings are covered!
