Do you guys get rental insurance? I wonder if I should get it just to be safe.
Your gas mane on your balcony has a valve that you can shut if you are worried. It's usually at about waist level on the adjoining pipe from the meter into the house/to the water heater. I have left mine for a month to six weeks at a time with no troubles.
Renter's insurance? Not sure why you would want to. The landlord should already have property insurance which is ridiculously cheap here. Covers stuff like fire and water damage. What could really happen while you were away that would be your responsibility? Nothing, in my estimation.
