This coverage is arguably one of the most crucial, given the amount a lawsuit or liability claim could cost you without it.

If you are forced to leave your unit after a loss, this coverage will provide you with compensation for costs that will tide you over until your unit is repaired or rebuilt. This will offer additional living expenses coverage following a sudden accidental event. 

Consider what would happen if a fire broke out in your apartment building and caused devastating damage to your unit, making it uninhabitable for several weeks – or even months – while repairs were being done.  

Where would you live during this time? How would you prepare food for you and your family? Your Additional Living Expenses insurance can respond by covering you – either directly or via reimbursement (so keep all your receipts!) for hotel bills, restaurant meals, and even temporary moving costs during the time your apartment is being repaired.
