Home personal insurance is a class of property insurance. It pays for the losses and damages to an individual’s residence, along with furnishings and other valuable things in the home. Liability coverage against accidents in the home or on the property is also provided by this insurance.
How does HOME Personal Insurance Policy work?
Every home insurance policy has a liability limit that determines the amount of coverage the insured should receive when an unfortunate incident occurs. This insurance policy covers usually four kinds of incidents on the insured property. These are—interior damage, exterior damage, loss or damage of personal assets/belongings, and injury that occurs while on the property. When a claim is made on any of these incidents, the homeowner will be required to pay a deductible, which in effect is the out-of-pocket cost for the insured.
A claim is made to an insurer for interior water damage that has occurred in a home. The cost to bring the property back to livable conditions is determined by a claims adjuster to be $10,000. If the claim is approved, the homeowner is told of the amount of his or her deductible, say $4,000, according to the policy agreement entered at the time of purchasing the policy. The insurance company will issue a payment of the excess cost, in this case, $6,000. The lower the deductible on an insurance contract, the higher the monthly or annual premium on a homeowners insurance policy and vice versa.
