    Default renters insurance help

    I am looking for renters insurance. We have bad credit, with a deed in lieu...not banruptcy or forclosure.....Anyone have any ideas? I have called Allstate, but the main agent was out....they will call tomorrow. I called farm bureau....the agent has to call the main office. I havent had renters insurance in over 20 yrs, so, I never thought this would be a problem. I know there are quite a few firms I can call, but was wondering if anybody had any suggestions.

    Thanks,

    Dawn

    Call your current auto insurance provider - you should qualify for a multi-policy discount.

    As for your credit - it may bump your premiums a bit but you're looking at something like $100/yr to $200/year tops. Not a huge cost.

    When I lived in the US, I had Travelers for rental insurance. I never made a claim though, so I can't comment on them. But it's another one you could ask.

    I agree - try your car insurance company first.

    I use State Farm for mine. I don't know what credit guidelines they have, but you could check them out.
