The rental housing market in the United States has reached a 50-year peak, with more than 114 million Americans living in landlord-owned properties. Renting a house, apartment or condo means that the ownership of that property belongs to someone else – the landlord.
“A common misconception is that a landlord’s insurance policy for the property eliminates the need for renters to purchase their own insurance,” said Bonnie Lee, vice president of Property Claims at Mercury Insurance.
