Assurant becomes preferred renters insurance provider at more than 100 Village Green communities
NEW YORK and SOUTHFIELD, Mich., August 27, 2018 — Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a global provider of risk management solutions, today announced that it has been selected as the preferred provider of renters insurance to Village Green, one of the nation’s premier apartment property management companies. Specifically designed for multifamily housing, Assurant’s renters insurance will be available to more than 25,000 of Village Green’s residents.
“Village Green is an industry leader and we’re pleased to have the opportunity to protect their residents,” said Steve Hein, senior vice president of Multifamily Housing at Assurant. “Both companies share a commitment to providing exceptional customer service, and we look forward to supporting Village Green’s dedication to offering exceptional living experiences for renters across the country.”
The exclusive partnership with Village Green will make it easy for residents to meet their insurance requirement during the leasing process. Assurant aims to provide education on the importance of having protection during the buying process, since many renters aren’t aware of the need. According to the latest research by Assurant, nearly one-third (32%) of renters believe either their landlord or property management company should be responsible for damage or liability protection. Presenting renters with insurance options during the leasing process can further help protect residents in the event an incident occurs.
In addition to traditional renters insurance, Assurant offers full-service renters insurance tracking, pay with rent insurance and liability-only insurance. Additional solutions that enhance a property’s risk mitigation include surety bonds and debt recovery.
“At Village Green we seek to work with service providers that deliver exceptional solutions that are centered around the renter,” said Barb Hale, executive vice president, Village Green. “We selected Assurant based on their decades of experience, superior program offerings, and nationwide support structure. In addition, we sought a solution that could present peace of mind for our renter community.”
