Owning a home requires a significant amount of responsibility, and one large part of that includes obtaining homeowners insurance. Homeowners insurance can help financially protect you after unexpected incidents, such as fires, smoke, windstorms, hail, theft, vandalism and explosions.
What Is Homeowners Insurance?
Homeowners insurance is a policy that offers coverage for damage to your home, personal belongings and other property. It may also help cover living expenses if you need to live elsewhere temporarily due to property damage following a covered event. Additionally, it may provide liability coverage for third-party injuries that occur on your property or if you are otherwise responsible for others’ property damage or bodily injuries.
Depending on your location and situation, you may also want to opt for additional coverages. They may be available as endorsements to your homeowners insurance policy or as separate policies, including the following:
- Flood insurance
- Earthquake insurance
- Water backup coverage
- Umbrella insurance
Discussing your homeowners insurance needs with an insurance provider who can make the appropriate recommendations is critical.
How Does Homeowners Insurance Work?
Generally, if a covered loss occurs when you have homeowners insurance, you can file a claim with your insurance provider. You may then receive payment for your loss in accordance with your policy’s terms, minus any applicable deductible, and up to your policy’s coverage limit. Additionally, for third-party liability claims, the impacted individual typically works with your insurer to receive financial assistance.
Is Homeowners Insurance Required?
Homeowners insurance is not required by law, but it is often a requirement of mortgage lenders and is highly recommended. Without homeowners insurance, you may have to pay for any incident out of pocket, regardless of how much it costs.
