General Information

Homeowners insurance provides coverage for loss or damage to your house and its contents caused by perils such as fire, hurricane, windstorm, earthquake and other insured perils.

Building insurance covers the cost of replacing your building or repairing damage to the insured structures on your property caused by an insured peril.  

Content insurance provides coverage for loss or damage to your personal possessions. For example, furniture, appliances, clothing, laptops, jewelry, paintings, gadgets etc.

If a guest is accidentally injured in your home and you are legally responsible for the injury, your homeowners insurance will pay for medical expenses and damages up to the limits stated in your policy documents.
