Help your tenants protect themselves with tenant insurance
Encouraging your tenants to consider purchasing tenant insurance is one simple way of managing and reducing your risk. Many tenants do not realize that their landlord’s insurance does not cover them or their belongings in the event of a fire, flood, theft or other catastrophe. Designed for social housing tenants, HSC’s Tenant Insurance Program is a low-cost and hassle-free program. Tenant insurance offers benefits to tenants by paying for temporary accommodation and replacing damaged property. It also helps tenants by decreasing their exposure to liability when their actions injure other tenants or damage the provider’s property.
Ontario Works clients and recipients of Ontario Disability Support Program benefits may have the costs of this insurance covered as an allowable expense under their shelter allowance.
HSC can help you market this insurance to residents with brochures, posters and information sessions.
