There is no legal requirement for home insurance, but if you’re getting a mortgage or re-mortgaging, the lender may require building coverage. This is because their money is secured by the property.

If you rent, the building’s structure is your landlord’s responsibility. Check your lease/tenancy agreement to ensure this isn’t a condition.

Why You Should Make Sure You Have Home Insurance 

Home insurance is an investment you make to protect your home and the things in it that are important to your family. It comes in two different types: buildings insurance and contents insurance. You can also get a plan that covers both, which is called an all-in-one plan.

Your home is unquestionably the most valuable thing you own, and many of you probably saved for it for years. Without insurance, you probably wouldn’t be able to afford to fix any damage caused by a fire or flood. This is why it’s so important to have it.

Hurricanes and tornadoes don’t happen often. However, winter storms can cause a lot of damage. Your home can be destroyed by natural disasters, and putting it back together is never easy. So, even though these disasters can’t always be stopped and can’t always be fully predicted, it’s still important to protect your home with building and contents insurance that covers this kind of event.

You should also make sure you have contents insurance to cover valuable things like jewelry, paintings, and furniture, in addition to building insurance. All insurance policies are different, and you should always read the fine print to make sure you know what is covered, but in general:

  • A standard policy should cover damage caused by things like fire, wind, hail, explosion, smoke, and criminal acts like vandalism.
  • Buildings insurance covers the structure of a building, like the floors, painted walls, fixtures, and fittings, like radiators, baths, and showerheads.
  • Contents insurance covers everything in your home, including laptops, electronics, furniture, jewelry, pictures, and so on. Some insurance policies also cover bikes and cell phones.
  • Contents insurance will also pay for damage caused by fire and theft. It can also cover things that get broken or stolen while you’re away from home. It will either pay to replace your things or give you their market value.

Your home insurance policy documents might not be the most interesting things to read, but you should still read them, so you know what is covered, what isn’t, and what your rights and responsibilities are.

As with most things, it’s best to check anything you’re not sure about or don’t fully understand right away rather than risk problems if you need to make a claim later.

Home insurance gives you peace of mind every day, so you can enjoy living in your home without worrying about it.
