Why Buy Homeowners Insurance?
One of your biggest purchases, investments is your home. Having your property not properly covered could result in you everything, the equity in your home, your mortgage not being paid off due to no or insufficient coverage.
Homeowner’s policy is a multiple-line insurance policy, meaning that it includes both property insurance and liability coverage, with an indivisible premium, meaning that a single premium is paid for all risks. This means that it covers both damage to one’s property and liability for any injuries and property damage caused by the owners or member of his/her family to other people. It may also include damage caused by household pets. The U.S. uses standardized policy forms that divide cove rage into several categories. Coverage limits are typically provided as a percentage of the primary coverage A, which is coverage for the main dwelling.
