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.

Renters InsuranceNo. Your renters Insurance Policy is personal lines residential tenants coverage. It should provide coverage for your "Personal Property" and may have some liability and personal injury coverage as well. Your Renters or "Tenants Policy" would not cover your business property nor the property of another person. Your landlord is expected to have his own property coverage.If you need coverage for your business property you would need to pick up a business owners insurance policy. Your personal lines residential rental policy would not cover your business property.AnswerYou'd have to examine the contents of your vehicle insurance policy to determine what would be covered.

If you were living in your home when you first took out the homeowner's policy, then, yes, you do need to change it. To not notify the insurance company that you are now renting your home could render your coverage null and void, resulting in the loss of coverage should something happen to the house. There are several types of coverage, some of which offer more coverage than others. In your case, you need to change the policy since the house is now a rental. But, there are other factors involved, too. Did you rent the home furnished? If so, you need to maintain coverage that will still insure your contents of the house. If not, then you need to change the policy to cover the house only. The renters will need to take out a rental policy, which will cover their belongings in the event of a fire, or other types of damage. You also need to talk to your insurance agent about keeping liability insurance on the house, as well. And, since some renters aren't aware that the landlord's insurance won't cover their belongings, you need to inform the renters that they will have to take out a rental policy to insure their belongings (furniture, clothes, etc.) if they want them insured. Also, keep in mind that a homeowner's policy does not cover flood damage; that will have to be a separate policy.
