Homeowners Insurance Coverage Options
Standard Homeowners coverage is mostly based on the insurance carrier you select, type of policy, type of home and your location. However, the following are main areas of coverage:
|Dwelling||Pays for damage or destruction to the home and any unattached structures and buildings, such as fences, detached garages, and storage sheds|
|Personal Property||Covers the contents of your house, including furniture, clothing and appliances, if they are stolen, damaged, or destroyed|
|Liability||Protects you against financial loss if you are sued and found legally responsible for someone else’s injury or property damage|
|Medical Payments||Covers medical bills for people hurt on your property. Medical Payments coverage also pays for some injuries that may happen away from your home, such as if your dog bites someone|
|Loss of Use||Pays for additional living expenses if your home is too damaged to live in during repairs. Most standard home insurance coverage pays 10 to 20 percent of the amount of your dwelling coverage|
