What should people know before they buy renters insurance?

I'm a first-time renter and my landlord expects me to buy renters insurance. What should I know about this kind of insurance?

Answer
Before purchasing renters insurance, you should understand what it is. Renters policies cover you for your personal property and personal liability, and they can also cover unforeseen expenses such as medical bills and temporary living costs. Once you understand what each of these coverages provides, you can evaluate which coverages would work best to fit your needs.
