    I hope they were insured. I used to live in this apartment complex 2.5 years ago and they do require you to have renter's insurance upon move in. That doesn't necessarily mean that the tenant will keep it up to date like they are supposed to but it is required that you do so. They just don't check. Either way, times are hard and I hope they are okay.
