Homeowners Insurance Information
Your home is likely to be the biggest asset you will ever have, so protecting it against disaster makes perfect sense. If you have a mortgage you won't have a choice - you will be required by your lender to have insurance to cover the cost of rebuilding your home in the event of a fire or other crucial damage. Don't rely on the coverage levels mandated by your bank or mortgage company. Those levels are designed to protect the house itself, but not necessarily your possessions.
Because everyone's needs are not the same, it is best to consult your agent to help assess your needs and find the insurance policy that is right for you. Contact First Commercial Insurance Agency to discuss your homeowner insurance needs.
Homeowners insurance provides financial protection against disasters. A standard policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it.
Homeowners insurance is a package policy. This means that it covers both damage to your property and your liability or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. This includes damage caused by household pets.
Damage caused by most disasters is covered but there are exceptions. The most significant are damage caused by floods, earthquakes and poor maintenance. You must buy two separate policies for flood and earthquake coverage. Maintenance-related problems are the homeowners' responsibility.
