There are different types of insurance, may be the insurance cover you are opting doesn't cover your stuff when you are outside the house premises. In that case you should ask your insurance agent to provide that insurance to you.

Renters insurance will cover your belongings in the house, and will also cover you for any legal mishaps you have with the landlord. It is prudent to have it as if for example there is a flood your belongings would not be covered by the landlords house insurance.

If your parents bought their house they do not need renters insurance but they do need house insurance. They should insure the house for two things, one for the contents and any damage to the home, and two if there is a mortgage they should have insurance to cover that in the event that anything should happen to either of them.

You can obtain renters insurance that would cover damage to the contents. The homeowner should already have hazard insurance, so there is not any point in your trying to purchase that.

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.
