Homeowners Policy Coverage Explained

 

Dwelling Structure Coverage A

The amount it would cost you to rebuild your house if it were to be destroyed. 

You should insure your house for 100% replacement cost.

Replacement Cost is the cost it will take for a contractor to rebuild your house.

It is not the appraised value and it is does not include the value of land.

 

Other Structures Coverage B

Unattached structures on your property including your fence, shed or detached garage.

 

Your Personal Property or Contents Coverage C

The amount or value of the property you moved inside the house. 

Clothes, furniture, electronics, personal items.  

Take a quick look around your house and determine if you had to replace everything inside, how much do you need?  $50,000?  $75,000?

 

Liability Coverage D

Too often we see 100,000 of liability coverage.  It only costs up to $25 annual to get $300,000.

This is the coverage that defends you against any claim in which you are legally liable to another party for property damage or bodily injury.

By selecting the $300,000 limit of liability, you qualify for an umbrella policy.

 

Additional Living Expenses or Loss of Use Coverage E

As a result of a claim, you can no longer live in your house and have to move to another location. Could be a hotel stay or due to the severity of the claim, rent a house.

 

Medical Payments to Others Coverage F

This is a limit payable to someone other than you or your resident family members for reimbursement of medical expenses.

You should have least have $5,000 since the difference between $1000 and $5000 might be $10.
