About Homeowners Insurance

If you are moving into your first home, you may not know all the basics about homeowners insurance, or if you even need it. There is no law in New Jersey that requires homeowners to have homeowners insurance, but those with a mortgage through a government lender are usually mandated to carry a policy.

Even if you don’t have a mortgage, it’s recommended that every homeowner get a policy that can help protect their biggest investment. What’s more, they’ll have financial protection in the event of damage to their home. Standard homeowner policies could cover damage caused by:

  • Natural disasters like wildfires or tornadoes
  • Severe weather like storms, lightning, high winds, and hail
  • Fires, explosions, and smoke
  • Theft and vandalism

However, typical homeowner insurance policies do not cover flood or earthquake damage, as these may require specialized policies.

What Does Homeowners Insurance Cover?

Home insurance policies can vary depending on the type of coverage you choose, but they typically cover damage to your home, property, and personal belongings, along with liability. Common types of coverage for homeowners insurance can include:

Dwelling Coverage

Dwelling coverage could pay for repairs or rebuilding to your home and any connected structures like the roof, garage, or chimney, if it was caused by a covered peril, like a storm, vandalism, or tornado.

Other Structures Coverage

Other structures coverage covers any detached areas of your home, such as separate garages, sheds, driveways, and fences.

Personal Property Coverage

Personal property coverage helps pay for your personal belongings, like clothing, furniture, and electronics. There is a coverage limit for personal property, typically between 50 and 70 percent of the total dwelling coverage.

Liability Coverage

Liability coverage helps pay for the damages if another person has been injured or their property has been damaged at your home. It helps pay for the medical fees incurred from the bodily injuries and can also cover legal fees and lawsuits if you’re sued.

Loss of Use Coverage

Loss of use coverage helps pay for living expenses and costs you will incur if you need to stay in another location like a hotel when repairs or renovations are being completed.
