Steps to take if You are Robbed
It is important that you notify any other renters who share your apartment that a robbery has occurred. After you all determine what has been stolen, you may need to contact your insurance agent in order to file a claim on your renters insurance policies. If you have an inventory of your possessions, go through your apartment and check if anything has been taken. Make a note of missing items and have this in hand when you make the call to your agent.
You may want to report the robbery to the property manager as soon as possible. It is important that the management respond quickly to have any damage done to your doors or windows repaired. In the future, you may want to consider finding an unusual hiding place in your apartment for any valuables, such as jewelry. Remember that a small safe or lockbox may be picked up and carried away by a robber.
It may be wise to talk with the management of your Florida apartment complex to find out if you may install a burglar alarm. If you choose to install an alarm, and any additional safety features not provided by your landlord, you might want to report these items to your insurance agent, as they may make a difference to renters insurance premiums.
