To better understand why insurance is something you need, ask yourself the following questions:
- How would I get the money to replace all of my lost personal possessions if a fire or flood destroyed my home?
- Would I have a place to stay (or money for a hotel) if I needed to leave my home as a result of a fire or flood?
- If I accidently cause a fire (by falling asleep with a cigarette or leaving a pot on the stovetop), which also destroys my neighbour’s property and I am sued, would I be able to pay for my legal expenses?
The purpose of insurance is to protect yourself and your family from unexpected events that may occur when we least expect them and which may cost a lot to handle.
While you might think that these kinds of things won’t happen to you, it’s more common than you think. Even if an incident doesn’t originate in your unit, you could be affected. And while some landlords and local charities might be able to help – they often can’t afford to help with everything you need.
