While we’d like to think it won’t happen, there are a few bad apples in every group, so angry fans after a game isn’t outside the realm of possibility. Does Arlington, TX Renters Insurance protect you from angry fans who are causing property damage? Quite possibly, yes.
Renters insurance is generally offered on a named perils basis. Bear in mind that there are two common policy forms in Texas, the HO-4 and the HO-BT. The HO-4 is the more common one, so it’s the one we’ll look at here. If you have an HO-BT, make sure that you review your policy for specific language that may change coverage.
Named Peril: Fire
Your Arlington, TX renters insurance protects your property against fire. That means that, regardless of the cause of the fire, your property has coverage. Generally you have replacement cost coverage, so you’ll be able to buy new property. Because you have coverage, if there’s a fire, it’s important to get people out and not worry about your personal property. The policy will cover your stuff, but it can’t replace you so you should follow best practices and get out quickly.
Named Peril: Theft
Theft of your property is also covered under your renters insurance in Texas. The same replacement cost coverage is available, if the endorsement is on your policy, so you’ll be able to replace the things that were stolen. This is a common cause of loss, so it’s important to have documentation of what you have. A home inventory is a great way to do this, but credit card or bank statements, or even retailer loyalty program information, can also be used.
If there’s an attempted theft, remember that you have renters insurance and you’ll be covered, so let the person have what they want and protect yourself. By doing that, you ensure your safety and health because you know you’ll come out in the same position you were in before. That’s the whole point of Arlington renters insurance, to put you in the position you were in before the loss.
Named Peril: Vandalism/Malicious Mischief
Vandalism and malicious mischief are covered under your policy. Make sure you know the details, though. Your car is not covered – that’s why you have auto insurance. The building is not covered, because you’re not responsible for someone else vandalizing the building. But your personal property is covered, whether it’s one person or a horde of angry fans who are responsible.
Named Peril: Riot or Civil Commotion
If things get truly out of hand, you’ll want to know that riot or civil commotion is a named peril in the policy. Once again, the best thing to do is to remove yourself from the situation, keep yourself safe, and let the policy protect you after things have settled down.
