Establishments may also be involved in the rental of these spaces.
Insurance impacts your relationship with your landlord. If you have insurance, you tell the landlord that you’ll be able to cover any damage that occurs to your property as the landlord won’t complete the repairs after damage during your lease. This then builds up your landlords' trust, and the chance of getting the lease that you want is high. Also, in a lawsuit, the insurance will cover most of the fees until its limits.
