Are tenants in Ballston required to pay for renter's insurance?

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not require that tenants in Ballston to obtain renter’s insurance. However, our leases require that renters purchase renter’s insurance which pays for losses of the tenant's personal property due to theft, fire, renter negligence, or if someone is injured at the rental dwelling. A property owner’s insurance policy protects the property from loss, but not the tenant’s personal property if it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Please contact your insurance agent to let them know that you are putting your property into service.
