Home insurance is a robust product with many features and options. That's why it's best to have a licensed insurance broker review your coverages and make recommendations to ensure you're protected. It also helps to have a bit of an understanding of some of the common areas to pay attention to when reviewing your home insurance policy. Here are a few tips that may help with your choices.
If something changes with your home, let your insurance broker know. Changes such as renovations or adding new out buildings may be considered a "material change" and may affect your coverage. If you have made or plan to make changes to your home, give you insurance broker a call and we can ensure you maintain your coverage.
There are special limits on items such as jewelry. Keep a record of what you own and what it's worth. With an inventory, you will know if you have enough insurance to buy replacements in the event of a loss.
Keep an inventory of the items in your house. Take pictures, or take a video of your property. This will help you to recall the items that were in their your home, prior to the claim. Make sure this information is kept in another location or safety deposit box.
Your home policy also has a liability section that protects you if damage or injury occurs as a result of your negligence. This section of your policy has a limit as well and with settlements steadily increasing it may be a good idea to speak with you broker about how you can increase this limit.
These are only a few areas to consider on your home insurance policy. If you have any questions about your policy, please give your broker a call. Armour brokers are licensed professionals who can answer your questions, assess your coverages and make recommendations based on your individual situation.
