Or, if you’re still browsing, we can help with that, too. Here are a few types of home insurance:
This is a very simple policy. It protects against things like explosions, burglary or theft, fire damage, lightning, smoke, hail, and windstorms.
Broad Form Policy
This covers slightly more than a basic policy. You’d be covered in the event of damage from falling objects, damages to electrical appliances, and damage to plumbing or heating systems caused by water, snow or freezing temperatures.
Special Form Policy
This policy covers a home from many physical misfortunes, with a few notable exceptions including earthquakes, floods, and damage from war or nuclear fallout.
Contents Broad Form
This type of policy is designed for tenants who rent a house or an apartment. Normally, Contents Broad is an inexpensive policy for renters. It’s useful if someone gets hurt on the property. It also protects the renter against damage or theft of personal property.
Comprehensive Form Policy
This is a very inclusive policy, as it provides all the protection found in the Special Form Policy plus additional coverage. When and if a home sustains any type of damage that’s not specifically mentioned as an exception, the Comprehensive Form will cover it.
Unit Owners Policies
This is specifically for owners of apartment complexes or condominiums. The Unit Owners Policies provide personal property coverage and protect against damages from earthquakes, lightning, hail, storms, and fire.
Market Value Policy
This one is similar to the Basic Policy because it provides very minimal protection, but it’s more suited for older or historical homes that have unique physical characteristics that may be more expensive to repair or replace than the current estimated market value.
