The landlord is not responsible for any damage or loss that occurs to the tenant’s personal property regardless of the cause of the damage or loss. We recommend that all tenants obtain renters insurance which usually covers theft, fire and flooding of your apartment, and will protect your possessions in the case of an emergency.
