Our Homeowner’s Insurance Policy provides protection for you and members of your household (i.e. members of your family and domestic employees who normally reside with you). Your home may be the biggest investment you make and you should always be prepared to thoroughly protect it in the event of a loss. Our policy protects you against loss, damage or legal liability that is incurred during the policy period.
At What Value Should you Insure?
You should always insure for the full replacement value of the property. If you insure your property for less than the full replacement value and you suffer a loss, it may be very expensive for you to replace the portion that was not insured.
Is a valuation required in order to insure?
A valuation is the only means of knowing the full replacement value of your property.
