Live Without A Worry - Get Home Insurance:

Jan 6, 2008
Everyone dreams of having their own home but most can not afford it due to the financial commitment it requires. But many still prefer to make this commitment because it provides security to them as well as their loved ones in case they get ill, die or are no longer able to pay for their homes for any other reason. Further protection can be provided to the loved ones by getting home insurance.

Usually, a mortgage lender will require that buildings insurance is put in place as a condition of any mortgage being lent to you to buy the property. It really does pay to shop around and ensure you get the best deal instead of just accepting what the lender offers you. Very often the lender's insurance will be expensive or not provide cover that can be obtained at better terms elsewhere.

It is a point to note that the buildings cover in insurance does not include the fittings and other contents of the home like the furniture. There are several incidents where the insurance replaces a damaged roof or wall while they politely decline their offer for the furniture or your refrigerator. So it is always better to take some time and understand what all are covered under your home insurance policy.

If you want to protect your precious items then you will need to get them insured as well. There are combined insurance policies that you can get to protect your home as well as the items within. This is a much cheaper deal since everything is covered within the same insurance policy. But once again you must refer to different insurance companies and deals they offer before finalizing anything since difference companies have different quotation for same set of items.

Arranging home insurance is simple and easy to do. Not only is it simple to set up but the cost is usually not prohibitive. If you are setting up a policy on a new home, it pays to check what the seller's previous claims history has been as this may give you some warning of issues that are otherwise not apparent from a simple inspection of the property. If they have been claiming for burglary for instance, how often and if it is a common occurrence what does that say of the neighbourhood?

If you want to determine the insurance value of the building then get hold of any surveyor's report or valuation report. Different companies have different methods to determine this value for example some may require that the value should include all types of sale prices which include the site clearance as well.

It is always a surprise for the policy holders to assess the value for contents cover. You might even be astonished when someone calculates the things that cost you to replace contents within home. When we consider the furniture and the electronic appliances, they alone can consume what we have accumulated.

Protecting our home is of utmost importance but it will go a long way if you do a little bit of research before making the final decision. It is recommended that you read the terms and conditions clearly because sometimes there are some factors that might affect the insurance greatly.
