Home Insurance Benefits
You’ve worked hard to have a home of your own. Now you need to protect it from threats like fire, severe weather, and other known perils.
Your lender may require you to carry a certain amount of insurance while you have a mortgage. Whether required or not, home insurance offers you many benefits. Consider the policy to be financially protected should the unthinkable occur. Damage from fires and other perils are very costly to repair or replace if the home should be effected. Our team at Richards Insurance Group are ready to work with homeowners in the Lincoln, NE area to help them understand their insurance options.
What can Home Insurance Do?
Home insurance not only protects the physical house, but it also covers the home’s contents. It will also include any buildings or structures on the property, such as pergolas, fencing, or sheds. For valuable collections, such as firearms or artwork, additional coverage may be needed. The liability portion of the policy will protect you if someone is injured in an accident on the property and you are deemed responsible. Should they decide to take you to court, the legal expenses and medical bills can be challenging to handle. Our agents will help you have a clear understanding of everything that is covered by the policy and, more importantly, what isn’t.
What does Home Insurance not Include?
Most home insurance policies will not cover flooding or earthquakes. These situations need to be handled by a separate policy which you can obtain in a flood or earthquake policy.
Should a disaster occur, personal belongings and the contents of the home will be covered. If your house is not habitable or has been destroyed, the home insurance policy will cover your expenses on hotels and restaurants until you can return.
