Yes, it can be included in the lease. It will only cost you less than $250/year depending on the amount of coverage and protects both your personal property and your liability. Plus, if the building burns down or some other loss, pays for you new place to live and other inconveniences. The real question is, why fight it? why would you not buy coverage required or not? 4lifeguild
