Residential Renters Insurance -- CLEQ

Overview

The number of people who rent rather than own is on the rise, thanks to a variety of economic and social factors. Many of these people are uninsured and offer an opportunity to gain clients and customer loyalty. To tap into this market, agents must understand the exposures and insurance needs of residential tenants of all kinds—people who live in houses, apartment buildings, dormitory rooms, fraternity or sorority housing, assisted-living facilities, and other structures that they do not own—and the insurance coverages available to properly insure them.
