We offer SBOA tenant insurance which is a simple and inexpensive way to protect belongings from the unexpected. Homeowner's or Renter's insurance policies are accepted with an active Declaration page presented at the time of lease. Tenants are strongly encouraged to check with their insurance provider to ensure that off-site storage is covered in their policy.
