The protection you need
Home insurance, also commonly called homeowner's insurance (often abbreviated in the US real estate industry as HOI), is a type of property insurance that covers a private residence. It is an insurance policy that combines various personal insurance protections, which can include losses occurring to one's home, its contents, loss of use (additional living expenses), or loss of other personal possessions of the homeowner, as well as liability insurance for accidents that may happen at the home or at the hands of the homeowner within the policy territory.
Additionally, homeowner's insurance provides financial protection against disasters. A standard home insurance policy insures the home itself along with the things kept inside.
Contents coverage is just that — it covers what’s inside your home. I’m talkling about everything from furniture and electronics to pots and pans. If these items are lost or destroyed by a covered event, your policy can help pay to replace them.
Dwelling coverage helps pays for damage to the structure itself caused by sudden, accidental events like fire, wind, lightning, falling objects and vandalism. This is the coverage most homeowners think of first when selecting insurance.
The third component of your home policy is liability coverage. It helps protect you from loss in case you’re financially responsible for injury to others or damage to their property. This coverage extends beyond your home and in fact follows you anywhere in the world.
