Renters Insurance

What kind of insurance do I need if I'm renting out my property?

What kind of insurance you need depends on a few factors of your rental. For insurance, a million in liability may sound like a lot but for most businesses, this is just a starting point because the risk of lawsuits and other exposures are so much higher.
