Renters insurance is definitely worth getting. Most agents or brokers from whom homeowners insurance can be purchased can also write renters insurance.

As for renters insurance being shared... since you are renting the premises, renters insurance covers contents only (not the structure of the building). The policy that you buy will specify the meetes and bounds of what is covered. It is important that you list on the application or other document tendered by the agent, the items that you wish to insure. The value of the items will determine the amount of coverage that you buy.

If you are buying the insurance with your roomate, be sure that both of you are shown to be insureds on the policy. Keep in mind, though, that if you part ways, the policy may have to be altered for the person who moved because the risk has changed (the property insured will be relocated to a new location).

Get receipts, photos, and descriptions ready for each of the items, especially the expensive items, and tell your renters insurance company that you want to add additional items to your renters insurance policy.

Is renters insurance required in California?

Unlike auto insurance, there is no state law in California that requires a renter to carry insurance. However, there is a growing trend of Landlords requiring their tenants to carry renters insurance as a part of their lease agreement. Regardless of whether or not your landlord requires you to maintain insurance I would recommend looking into obtaining a renters policy for yourself. Renters insurance is usually very cheap in California. Many renters policies not only cover your personal property in your apartment, but anywhere in the world as well.
