Why should I insure my student accommodation?
Are you a student and will soon be moving into accommodation?
Home insurance is mandatory if you rent a CROUS room, university room, studio, apartment or house, furnished or not. You will need to provide proof of this insurance when signing the lease and when the keys are handed over.
Your landlord is entitled to request an insurance certificate from you each year. Your contract will therefore have to be renewed no later than 31/08. Failure to renew can be a reason to terminate your lease.
In order to insure your responsibilities towards the owner, you must therefore take out home insurance covering the risks of fire, explosion and water damage. However, this insurance does not cover the damage caused to neighbours and third parties (excluding fire and water damage), damage caused to your property and your "private" civil liability.
We therefore invite you to complete your contract with coverages such as civil liability, theft, glass breakage, hardware extension. These options are available directly within the formulas or in addition to your online subscription.
