What happens once you require renters insurance?

Once you turn on the requirement, here’s how TurboTenant makes it easy for you to actually get proof of their policy:

  1. When you convert an applicant to a tenant, we’ll send an email to the renter letting them know you require renters insurance as part of the lease.
  2. Your tenant is then prompted to provide proof of their policy within their TurboTenant account. They can choose any insurance provider they want, and then simply upload their policy. They also have the option to purchase a policy for as low as $8/month through our partnership with SURE.
  3. Once they provide proof of insurance, we’ll send you an email letting you know you’re covered. When they purchase through SURE, you’ll also be notified if their policy changes, is canceled, or expires.

Want to turn the requirement off?

If you no longer want to require renters insurance, go to the "Advanced" page within your Account > Settings view and select the "Turn Off Requirement" option.
