Forget about the landlord filing for insurance, yes he can claim for the structural damage but not for the contents of the apartment, that is the tenants responsibility. So please, help if you can, but also make sure everyone has tenants insurance, covering fire, theft, and liability.

This laundromat had multiple Fires already, the landlord knew that.
Yet he let it happen again, at the risk of life and other people’s property.

Do you expect him to post a guard there 24/7?

I want to do a fundraising and drive for life insurance.

The money that goes to a family, can go much further with getting people in insurance. Term policies have good prices.

Renters insurance it about $150 a year to cover over 40,000.00

I think getting these coverages just skip our minds. We hear about it and then get busy. I wish we could bring more awareness and help people sign up.
