Your home is your biggest and most important investment. Naturally, you want to protect this investment. You need the best Home Insurance policy you can afford, but how do you know you have the right coverage and lowest premiums?
A Closer Look at Home Owners Insurance
When most people think of Homeowners coverage, they think of another way the insurance companies get money from us. However, the truth is, insurance is the best way to cover your potential risks since no one can accurately predict the future. Your homeowner policy protects you from extensive damages, injury expenses, and lawsuits.
Does Everyone Need Coverage?
If you own a house or residence, you should consider insuring it. In fact, it’s not an option if you have a mortgage on your home, because the lender wants their financial interests protected. Even if you are only renting a house or apartment, you should have the contents insured against damage and theft, because your landlord’s property insurance doesn’t cover your possessions or legal liability if your dog bites someone. Here are properties that should be fully insured:
- Private residences
- Cabins and vacation homes
- Luxury homes
- Rental properties
What’s in a Standard Home Insurance Policy?
A standard home insurance policy can help you secure financial protection for your home and personal belongings. It is made up of different types of coverages that can help you pay to repair or replace your home or belongings should damage from insured perils occur.
All typical home insurance policies will provide you with something called liability coverage. This coverage will protect you if someone who does not live with you becomes injured on your property. Imagine a visitor trips and falls over your broken porch steps, or a neighbour slips on ice in front of your home. If you are found at fault, the liability insurance can help you cover the legal or medical expenses associated. You may be able to increase your coverage limit and your agent can help explain the options that are available to you.
If you or anyone living in your home is a victim of theft, your home insurance policy can help you replace your stolen possessions. Your personal belongings will be covered whether they are stolen inside or outside of your home.
House fires are one of the most common causes of damage to homes. Your home insurance policy will help protect structures and belongings against them. If your home is completely destroyed by a fire, your policy will also cover the cost of living expenses, for example, hotel stays, rentals or food and restaurant bills.
Vandalism is typically covered under an all-risks or all-perils policy, unless specifically excluded. Vandalism coverage will apply to homes that are unoccupied, but not vacant. Unoccupied homes are homes that still have the owner’s belongings in them even though the property owner is absent. Vacant homes are empty with none of the owner’s personal property.
