Is it illegal to rent without insurance in Indiana?

Though state law does not necessarily force you to have renters insurance, it’s definitely important to make sure you’re covered. Additionally, many landlords ask you to have at least $100,000 in rental protection across the board in case there is a medical liability on the property while you live there, or you lose your items in some type of catastrophe.

Fortunately, renters insurance in Indiana is pretty cheap and most state residents pay less than national averages. Rents may be increasing year to year, but renters insurance in Indiana is pretty affordable at between 15 and $30 a month for many customers.

How much does it cost?

So much goes into how your premium is determined. Where you live matters, whether or not there is a business near you or potential for theft or a high crime rate, if there dogs in your home or certain breeds of dogs, whether or not you had a claim on a policy in the past – all these things matter when it comes to your rental premium.

Your fire district also matters. This is a number assigned to determine the potential of a total loss of property in your rental based on your proximity to a fire station or fireplug. You will need to be somewhere close to a water source if a fire occurs, and if the water is sourced from the truck itself and it takes the truck awhile to get to you or there isn’t enough water in the truck, the potential for damage is higher. Carriers think about things like these when they determine a premium for you. In most cases, the deductible you will need to pay before you receive any funds on a claim is right around $500.

We recommend at least $20,000 for personal property. Whether you are replacing a family heirloom, a sofa, a laptop or your linens, everything you own has some type of value. Working with us to fill out itemized information with the valuation of what you can help us get closer to that specific number that will allow us to cover you.

We also recommend $100,000 in medical liability. If there is some sort of accident or injury to someone else on your property and you are found medically responsible, you’ll need to pay for costs directly unless you have this protection. Since medical bills can get steep, so this type of coverage is more expensive than other parts of your policy.

We also recommend $1000 for Loss of Use of any facilities in your home. For example, if your kitchen is damaged and you need to cook meals, you will need to eat out, which can get expensive. Loss of use covers you for those inconvenient expenses you’ll need to pay for out-of-pocket.
