Christmas has gone by and you may have received new valuable things. If you’ve received fancy gifts, make sure you take their value into account by including it in your personal property inventory.
Renovations and Home Upgrades
If you’re planning to do upgrades and repairs at home, make sure you have reliable liability coverage for any injuries. Keep in mind that the replacement cost of your home may go up after renovation. Thus, you should inform your insurers before you do anything.
Houses have the risk of getting burglarized. Hence, when you decide to install safety devices to protect the contents of your home, it would be wise if you contact your insurer. Most insurers usually offer discounts for such updates – thereby, reducing your home insurance premiums.
Getting a New Pet
If you decide to own a pet, it would be best if you talk to your agent to know whether your liability coverage covers pet attacks. If not, ask how you can get coverage for such instances. Note that there may be dog breeds that won’t be covered. That includes pit bulls and wolf hybrids. To make sure that your dog is covered, ask your insurer about restricted dog breeds.
Some people start a home business without even getting a separate coverage for their business. Note that your home policy may not cover home-based businesses. To know how to get it covered right, ask your agent.
Renting Out Your Property
Vacation exchanges have become a “thing” recently, because it can be a more affordable vacation accommodation than hotels. If you decide to rent out your home, consult your agent first. Renters are usually not covered by your home policy.
