Is renters insurance required in Virginia?
While renters insurance is not required by law in Virginia, 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 is not liable for any damage to your personal property. So in the event of a fire, accident, or burglary you will be responsible for replacing your belongings.

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