I have already spoke with State Farm and have been informed that if my pitbull “goes off the rails” it will be fully covered in case of biting or anything and I will have my landlord added which leads me to can they still kick my dog out if I have them added and covered as well?
As I opined here before, this solution is the best one--as far as you should be concerned. However, before you sign up and pay for all the new liability coverage, you should discuss all of this with your landlord--because they may not want to accept your solution to their problem.
Your plan to get insurance renters insurance will not solve this problem. Why? Because most renter's insurance policies are fire policies that do not cover all liability risks.
