Why Should I Buy Homeowners Insurance?
Homeowners' insurance is money in reserve. It can help you out when such hazardous events as fires, severe weather, burglaries, or vandalism damage your house and possessions. The coverage acts as a promise of financial assistance following these accidents. It's there to fund your recovery, instead of forcing you to rely on savings accounts to do so. You won't destroy your solvency while trying to rebuild your life.
What Does A Homeowners Insurance Policy Cover?
Homeowners policies usually include five essential types of coverage:
Dwelling Coverage: If something damages your house, this coverage can pay to help you rebuild the home. It usually pays in replacement cost value, which is the home's like-new value.
Other Structures Coverage: Damage to gazebos, fences, sheds or detached garages has coverage under this section of your policy.
Possessions Coverage: This coverage pays for belongings if they get lost or damaged in a covered incident. Most policies pay the item's actual cash value at the time of the loss.
Liability Coverage: Your actions or inactions might cause harm to someone else. This coverage can help you pay for the costs of that person's recovery. This coverage might pay when a friend falls down your stairs, or if you hit a golf ball into a neighbor's living room, causing damage.
Loss Of Use Coverage: Following damage in your home, you might have to temporarily move out. This coverage can help pay for things like your hotel bills until you can return home.
You can also expand your coverage with more-specific perks that might allow you to file for additional compensation in case of certain losses:
High-value items endorsements/Scheduled items riders
Pet bite liability insurance
Equipment breakdown endorsements
Replacement-cost possessions insurance

Homeowners Insurance Frequently Asked Questions
What is not covered by homeowners insurance?
Most policies define what types of accidents they will and will not cover. The policy might list the exact perils it will cover, all else excluded. Other policies will cover losses except for a list of specific exclusions.
Does home insurance cover mold?
If you have let mold grow unchecked over a number of years, then your policy is not likely to cover you for your losses. However, if the mold develops as a result of a tree falling on the house and letting in water, then cleanup and remediation may be covered.
Can I get homeowners' insurance on a home I don't own?
You technically do not need homeowners insurance if you don't own a home. If you rent the home, then you will probably need renters insurance. However, if you have bought a home, but are financing it through a lender, then you will likely face a requirement to get a policy. The lender has an ownership interest in the home as long as you have the mortgage.
