For the benefit and protection of all residents, there is financial responsibility requirement in which you must have insurance protection during the term of your lease agreement.  As such, you must provide evidence of personal liability insurance with limits of liability in an amount not less than $100,000 per occurrence.  To assist you in meeting this requirement, we have a program with an independent insurance carrier from which you can choose to obtain renter’s insurance.  Through this program, all our residents are pre-approved for ePremium Plan renter’s insurance which offers high-quality, low-cost coverage with products that are designed specifically for residents of professionally-managed apartment communities. To sign-up for a policy with ePremium you can go online at www.epremiuminsurance.com or utilize the link on our home page.  You can satisfy your financial responsibility requirement and obtain renter’s insurance through this program, or you may choose to secure coverage on your own.
