Top 5 things that Define Home Insurance

Home Insurance is designed to protect your home against damages to the Structure itself, or to possessions in the home. Home insurance also provides liability coverage against accidents in the home or on the property.


Home insurance provides coverage for damage to your home and separate structures, such as a detached garage, typically caused by wind, fire, and vandalism (subject to limitations and exclusions). Extended Replacement Cost coverage is available.

Possessions Liability

Your personal property is covered anywhere in the world. Coverage is comprehensive, including many types of damages and broad causes of loss(subject to exclusions). Contents Replacement Cost is included and pays for the cost of repair or replacement without deduction for depreciation
