Are tenants in Virginia Hills required to purchase renter's insurance?

The Commonwealth of Virginia does not require that renters in Virginia Hills to obtain renter’s insurance. However, our leases require that tenants obtain renter’s insurance to cover losses of the tenant's personal property due to theft, fire, renter negligence, or if someone is injured at the rental dwelling. A’s insurance policy protects the rental dwelling from loss, but not the tenant’s personal property if it is damaged, destroyed or stolen. Please contact your insurance agent to let them know that you are putting your property into service.
