Insurance is essential in rental situations. Tenants must obtain their own content & liability insurance for the space in which they live. Reid Properties insure their buildings with respect to both liability and property damage but property insurance covered by the Landlord does not cover the interior contents of the tenant’s space. Therefore, when signing a lease with Reid Properties tenants agree to arrange their own content and liability insurance. Rob Tarrick of The Globe & Mail has written an informative article regarding tenant insurance called, Off to University – Keep yourself covered.
