This is particularly helpful in understanding the way in which claims are handled by each Insurer. Nobody wants to have a claim under a home policy but it is of course what insurance is all about. High value insurance brokers are very well equipped to deal with and advise on the handling of the claim at every stage of the process. Their key role is to keep the client informed of what is happening and managing their expectations on all matters relating to the claim. If the correct amount of time and effort has been invested originally when arranging the Insurance policy the likelihood of problems occurring are considerably lower. However should a dispute arise it is comforting to know that high value home insurance brokers will always have your best interests at heart and will always act in your interests to ensure a swift and fair claims settlement.
Aside from the circumstances mentioned above, this type of home insurance policy will cover your house as well as the other valuable items inside it against 10 different types of peril as declared in the agreement. The thing with this type of policy though is that a lot of companies have already discontinued offering it because they found it to be redundant in many states. The second type of home insurance policy is the HO-2. This is actually a little more comprehensive than the first type of policy since it widened its coverage to as much as 16 different perils or causes of damage to your house as well as the fixtures and valuable items therein. For instance, this type of policy already covers the damages that are due to plumbing, heating, ice/sleet, power outages and AC. And if you happen to be situated in a freezing area, then this policy can be a good choice for you.
Another option you can try is the third type of homeowner insurance which is the HO-3. This is actually termed as the Special HO Policy. Unlike the other policies, this type specifically focuses on the structure of your house. More so, it is able to cover all the hazards that can cause damage to your house-except those hazards which are particularly cited by the insurance company from which you will buy the policy. On the other hand, if you want a total package, then you should do for the HO 5. This is actually the most extensive of all the homeowners insurance policies. And that is also why this is also the most expensive of all of them. This type of home insurance policy will give your home protection against practically every factor that might damage your house. The only exemptions are war, earthquakes as well as floods. The thing with this type of home insurance policy though is that not all insurance policies carry it.
There are different kinds of coverage which go from an HO0 category which covers damage from fire, smoke, lightning, explosion and others which are very general, up to an HO5 category which covers most anything that can happen to your home. An HO5 home insurance policy will cover everything with the exception of items specifically mentioned in it, some of the items most insurance companies will not cover are floods, earthquakes and termite damage. Beware just because you buy this category of home insurance, it does not mean you are covered, the policy you buy must detail specifically what is and is not covered.
