Does homeowners insurance cover an injury to a guest of a renter in the same residence of the homeowner?
Answer . \nIf the renter bought their own renters policy, his insurance would cover the claim. Because you are renting out the home you should not have a standard home ow…ners policy. Call and check with the Claims department of your insurance co and ask the question..

You should check with your insurance agent. Different companies/policies may have different stipulations.

Does homeowners insurance cover renters belongings when their house was broken into and items were stolen?
If you are the owner of the house, and are renting to tenants (making you the landlord), then you only have insurance on the house (dwelling coverage - not homeowners coverage…) and not the personal contents of the renters. In this case, no, your insurance will not cover their loss. It is the responsibility of the renters to purchase insurance coverage on their personal belongings. . If you are the renter (tenant), then you have to buy contents coverage on your personal belongings, such as furniture, clothing, etc. The landlord is not responsible for your belongings, whether the loss is from robbery, fire, etc. . In order to purchase homeowners insurance you have to own the home (but it can still be mortgaged) and you have to live in the home. Otherwise, you have to have a dwelling policy on the house if you want it insured, whether it's vacant or rented. If, however, there is still a mortgage on the house, the bank (or mortgage holder) will require you to have insurance on it. . If the house is paid for, then it is at your discretion whether to have it insured or not, for the value of the house. But if you rent it out, your state may require that you carry liability insurance on it.
No, just your stuff is covered
A homeowner can insure the property and owned contents. A renter does not own the home so they can only insure their own contents. Liability coverage can be purchased on… either policy type.
If i go out of town and live the water running from the sink wouldmu homeowners cover the claim
NO, But they can get Renters or Tenants insurance
Depends on the policy and company. But most exclude animals, insects, and varmints.
I cannot see any way that a covered cause would require you to get a locksmith. If the damage was not caused by a covered cause then no it will not pay for a locksmith.
Does an owners liability insurance cover damages to contents of renters property if the homeowner is negligent?

If the renter chose not to purchase a re…nter insurance policy, Then the renter was negligent to the extent that the renter chose not to purchase a renter insurance policy, perhaps with the mistaken belief that the owners policy would cover them.
No, the property owners coverage does not provide coverage for a tenants property or liability.
Renters insurance really does cover a lot. It covers natural accidents, burglary, theft, fire, vandalism, and smoke damage. It also will pay your rent for a few months if you …get hurt in the apartment.
Highly unlikely, Most would cancel your insurance policy at themere mention of a trampoline.
No. First, if you are renting the home, you cannot insure it under a homeowners policy. If the home is not owner occupied for 90 days coverage ceases immediately. You must hav…e the correct property policy for the right situation. If the home is rented you need a tenant occupied dwelling fire policy to cover the home. Be very careful that you notify your agent of any changes in your use or anything else about your property.
