What is a home insurance policy?
A homeowners insurance policy provides coverage for the repair or replacement of your home and belongings in the event of fire or theft. It may also protect you from liability if someone is injured on your property. If you have a mortgage on your home, you will probably be required by the lender to maintain insurance coverage on your house.
What does homeowners insurance cover?
You can customize your home insurance policy to fit your specific situation and needs. Overall, you can choose from protection for your dwelling, other structures on your property such as a barn or fencing, personal property, and liability coverage. Homeowners insurance can help you repair or rebuild your home if it is damaged by fire, strong winds, lightning, or hail. It can also help you replace destroyed or stolen belongings inside your home.
