Understanding your Home Insurance Coverage Options

Your home is one of your most valuable assets, and to protect it adequately, you need a home insurance policy. A home insurance policy is more than likely required by your bank or mortgage lender, but even if you do not owe on your house, you will want to protect it by obtaining this type of policy. You do not want to be caught in a predicament by not having a policy. For example, if you live in an area in which there have been no tornadoes for decades then you suddenly have one, and your house is lifted off its foundation, you will want to be covered by a homeowners’ insurance policy.

Home Insurance Coverage Options

Your House and Outbuildings

All home insurance policies cover your house and other buildings on your property, such as your garage, shed, and barns. Your policy should be designed to cover the value of your house and outbuildings so that if they are damaged by fire, natural disaster, or other horrible incidents, your home can be repaired or replaced. It will also cover your house and outbuildings if they are vandalized.

Your Belongings

Your home insurance policy will cover your belongings, such as your furniture, appliances, and clothing, if there is a fire, natural disaster, or some other incident. It will also cover items, such as your TV and computers, if your home is broken into and those items are stolen or vandalized.

Living Expenses and Liability

If you must relocate while your home is being rebuilt or repaired, your living expenses will be paid for or reimbursed, at least in part, by your homeowners’ insurance policy. Your coverage will also include liability, such as if someone who is visiting your home falls and is injured, it can cover their medical expenses.
