What is Homeowners Insurance?
In short, homeowner’s insurance is property insurance. This insurance is designed to cover private property. This insurance is designed to cover the repair, replacement, or rebuild of your home. This may be necessary due to damage or destruction caused by fire, smoke, theft, vandalism, falling trees, or weather. Hail damage, lightning, and storms can damage your home, and these circumstances are covered by homeowners insurance as well. Your insurance policy may also cover the loss or damage to your clothing, furniture, and other personal possessions. This type of insurance will also cover the cost of rebuilding floors, walls, and roofs, windows, and supportive beams if needed. Your policy also covers your driveway and your foundation. In fact, structures on your property are usually covered under your homeowner’s insurance. However, this coverage doesn’t include damage to your dwelling caused by a flood or an earthquake.
If a guest or neighbor suffers some injury or incurs damage to their property while visiting your dwelling, homeowners insurance can also cover the cost of damage to other people’s property as well as injuries if they occur on your property. In fact, this type of insurance may also cover damage to your neighbor’s property if your dog destroys something on their property.
