Homeowners insurance is a “multi-line” insurance policy. Within the insurance industry, property and liability are often considered separate lines of coverage with separate premiums. With Homesite home insurance, your premium payments cover both property and liability. The premium is based on multiple insurability factors, the replacement cost of the home (which is u sually not the same as its market value) and its contents.
When damage occurs to your home, property, or another person, you submit a claim to your insurance carrier. The carrier then checks to see whether the claim is covered under your policy, and if so, pays for the cost of the damages.
IMPORTANT: Insurance policies can vary significantly in what and how much is covered. Always read your policy carefully to make sure you understand what it covers and what it doesn't.
The primary benefits of having home insurance are obvious. It pays for the cost of fixing any damage covered in the policy – even if your home is totally destroyed. What many people don’t know is that it can also pay for the cost of temporary housing while your home is being repaired.
In addition to your regular belongings, homeowners insurance can also cover the loss of items that are valuable and/or near and dear to your heart. For example, jewelry, expensive musical instruments, family heirlooms, antique furniture and more.
You can also get policy riders, also known as “endorsements,” to cover damages not covered in a basic homeowners policy. These coverages can include earthquake, sewer backups, identity theft and more. In fact, you may be surprised at some of the losses home insurance policy riders cover:
