My new building requires renters insurance: pls advise me on the basics

I'm a relentless optimizer and usually do tons of research before making decisions, but I am shuddering at the thought of wading through endless legal and sales verbiage on insurance sites, or even worse, of enduring verbal sales pitches from agents/brokers. Please help me short-cut through the tedium of getting this done. A few extra details inside. [more inside]

Costco insurance--Auto and renter's policies

A few weeks ago, I asked whether I should join Costco, and on your recommendation, I did (and am quite happy). Several people mentioned the Costco-branded insurance (underwritten by Ameriprise). There are both auto and renter's lines of insurance available, and my existing policies with another carrier are coming up for renewal. How is the insurance coverage and customer service on the Costco policies (or with Ameriprise in general)? Did you actually save the money you were expecting? Are there other carriers we should consider? [more inside]

Should I maintain renter's insurance even though I've moved out?

I moved out of my apartment, but am still on the lease, which extends for several months. I have "transferred" my renter's insurance policy to cover property and occurrences at my new apartment. This leaves me uncovered at the old place. Does this matter? [more inside]

Who's legally liable for a house fire?

My friend rents a house. The house burned last week. My friend has renter's insurance (probably not enough) and the landlord has homeowner's insurance (only $30k - definitely not enough). The fire inspector just announced that my friend's electric mattress pad shorted and caused the fire. Is the landlord's insurance company going to come after my friend? [more inside]

Renters Insurance for cohabitating couple

My SO and I (unmarried) are combining two apartments into one. We both currently have renters insurance of our own, each from our own car insurance company (not the same company). We are not interested in combining our car insurance under one account. Should we get renters insurance for both of us from one of our car insurance companies, or should we each retain our separate renters insurance that covers "my own stuff"?
