4 Aspects Covered by Homeowners Insurance

1. Personal Property

From furniture and computer equipment to appliances and televisions, the policy provides coverage against a number of perils. This includes damage causes by natural disasters, plumbing leaks, fire, and theft. Depending on the insurance plan, the policyholder's personal items may also be covered if they're used at other locations. 

2. Structural Damage

Once the policyholder pays their deductible, the carrier assesses whether repair or replacement is the better solution. From there, the claims filed by the policyholder are paid by the insurance provider. 

3. Liability

If someone is injured on your property, homeowners insurance will typically pay for the person's medical expenses if the homeowners is found to be negligent in causing the injury. Coverage can also extend to paying for wages lost while the injured person recuperates, as well as any legal claims. Liability protection includes damage to the property caused by the policyholder, family member, and other persons, too.

4. Temporary Living Expenses

Houses damaged by storms and other natural disasters may cause the structures to be uninhabitable. A standard homeowners insurance plan may pay for living expenses while the property is being repaired. This can include hotel stays, food, and transportation costs.
