First Steps To Addressing Home Vandalism in RI
The very first thing you must do if you notice your home has been vandalized or robbed is do not enter and call the police. You may not know if the culprit could still be inside your home. If the culprit is there, do not engage. Focus on specific details of them as that can help the police find them. Once the police have arrived and begun filling out your report, give us a call so we can get someone over there to start helping you with your insurance claim. It is a good time to take pictures of any damage and try to recollect any missing items. Keep in mind, this is a crime scene so it is strongly advised to not touch anything as it may be needed for evidence or identification of the suspect.

The tenant is responsible for covering all damages but your insurance can still keep you covered.
