Is renters insurance required in Texas?

While renters insurance is not required by law in Texas, some landlords may require it for you to live in their building. It’s generally a good idea to have at least some form of coverage as your landlord’s insurance won’t cover any damage to your personal property. So in the event of a fire, accident, or burglary you will be responsible for replacing your belongings.

What factors go into determining a renters insurance rate?

While the average cost of renters insurance varies based on a number of components, these are common factors that insurance companies use to assess risk and determine your renters insurance rate:

Location

The location of the rental property includes state and ZIP code.

Coverage

The type of coverage you choose and how much personal property and liability protection you want your policy to cover.

Deductible

The amount of money you choose to pay out of pocket can affect your renters insurance premium.

Bundle insurance policies

Nationwide offers a variety of multi-policy discount options. Choosing to bundle auto and renters insurance from the same insurance provider can potentially lower your insurance premium.

What to consider when getting renters insurance in Texas

Texas is known to have extreme weather and can be prone to tornadoes and floods for certain periods of time throughout the year. While renters insurance covers damage to property as a result of high winds, any damage as a result of a flood or earthquake generally is covered under a different policy.
