Are tenants in Riverton required to purchase renter's insurance?

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not require that tenants in Riverton to pay for a renter's insurance policy. However, our leases require that tenants purchase renter’s insurance to cover losses of the tenant's personal property due to theft, fire, tenant negligence, or if someone is injured at the rental property. A’s insurance policy protects the rental 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.
