Renting A Home In Spain? Are Your Personal Belongings Insured?
Are you renting a property in Spain? Yes, well do you have home insurance?
A lot of people assume that if the landlord has a home insurance policy then your contents are covered. However this is not normally the case.
Home insurance is split into two parts:
Buildings cover - that covers damages to the structure of the building, fixtures and fittings.
Contents cover - that covers the personal effects, furniture, the kitchen furniture and appliances, and all other belongings from your socks to your television.
Whilst your landlord might have taken out a policy to protect their buildings and property, it is highly unlikely that your landlord’s insurance policy extends to cover your personal belongings.
On a rental property, both the landlord and the tenant should take out their own home insurance. The Landlord´s home insurance will cover the building and possibly a small amount for their own contents. However, the Landlord’s contents insurance will not normally cover the tenant’s contents.
The Tenant should have personal contents insurance to cover their personal effects, and safe guard themselves from loss.
