Rebecca Williams is a young professional who recently moved to Bloomington-Normal, Illinois after getting a job with a company in the area. Like many young professionals, she decided to rent through a private leaser. She made this decision based on the price of the apartment, which was less than similar apartments through larger realty companies nearby.
“All in all, it was a really nice apartment,” Rebecca said. “It was just what I wanted, and it was in my price range too!”
Unfortunately for Rebecca, an accident happened early on.
“I moved in during the summer and brought a window AC unit with me. Apparently, dust built up in it. It ended up overheating and causing a small fire!”
The fire was not able to get too large before it was caught by a neighbor who then quickly called the fire department. As result, there was almost no physical damage done to the apartment building.
Rebecca’s possessions did not fare as well.
“I came home from work and everything I had smelled like smoke! I had to throw away most of my clothes, and even smaller things like my CDs and DVDs smelled gross.”
Lucky for her, Rebecca had PLR’s renters insurance.
Renters Insurance Definition
Renters insurance protects the possessions of tenants who are renting from a wide-range of catastrophes, such as a fire, theft, or environmental factors, like a tornado. In the Bloomington-Normal area, renters insurance is absolutely necessary.
“I did a ton of research on the area before moving,” Rebecca said. “Illinois and the midwest are notorious for tornados, so I got it mainly for that reason. I’m really happy that I did though.”
