Are renters in Shenandoah County required to purchase renter's insurance?
The Commonwealth of Virginia does not require that tenants in Shenandoah County to buy a renter's insurance policy. However, our leases require that tenants obtain a renter's insurance policy which pays for losses of the tenant's personal property due to theft, fire, renter negligence, or if someone is injured at the property. A’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.
