Dogs are a liability.
You love your dog, but dogs are a liability. Depending on the breed, they may even be excluded from your coverage. Be sure to mention any dog you may have when getting your home insurance.
Home insurance has exclusions.
Home insurance covers many things and offers lots of protection, but there are exclusions which are things your policy won’t cover. Some of the things that are excluded include:
- Owner neglect
- Earth movement
- Sewer backup
- Nuclear accident
- Dangerous dogs
You can choose how to cover your contents
When it comes to covering your content, you have options. You can choose to cover your personal property for its value today, which allows for depreciation, or you can cover the cost of replacing it today. It is less expensive to go with today’s value.
Some types of content coverage have limits.
When looking at your policy, you may notice that things like jewelry, art, and antiques have limits. They are usually relatively low, so if you want them to be protected, you should have an appraisal and get a rider to increase the limit on that category. If you have expensive items, you need additional coverage.
