Renter's insurance protects the contents of an apartment in cases of theft or damage, according to the California Department of Insurance. The landlord's insurance policies on the building do not cover the belongings of renters. Renter's insurance is not required by law in California but is offered by many major California insurance companies. Apartment building owners may want their tenants to purchase renter's insurance in order to protect the landlord from certain liabilities, according to Insurance.com.Learn more about Insurance
