When I get renters insurance for a property, does the insurance company contact the landlord to let them know that coverage has been initiated?
"I need to get insurance as a condition of my lease, but I'm wondering if I have to confirm with my landlord that I have insurance myself, or if the insurance company will do this for me."
“The only time your insurance company would contract the landlord is if the landlord is listed as an “interested party” or “”additional interest”” on your policy. As the name implies, this basically means that this person has an interest in your policy. They will be notified if the policy is changed, renewed, or canceled.
It is common for landlords to require that they be listed on the policy in this way, because they will be automatically notified about changes to your policy.”
