A recent Assurant survey found that about 40 percent of renters posted about their vacations on social media while still out of town, which increased their vulnerability to burglars. Steve Hein of Assurant says, “Two-thirds of burglaries happen while you’re not home.” Meanwhile, nearly half of the survey’s participants did not have renters insurance, and a third believed their landlord or property management company would be responsible for damage and liability protection. Experts warn that renters are responsible for their own contents protection and liability protection.  Watch Video
