Property insurance provides protection against most risks to your property, such as fire, theft, earthquake and weather damages, including specialized forms of insurance such as flood insurance.
TAM suggests and offers clients to have property insurance at very reasonable prices so that landlords can avoid any possible harms that could happen to their property.
Property insurance provides financial protection in the event that your home or its contents are damaged. It also provides protection if a third party got injured or damaged because of any action happened in the property. It’s also required by most mortgage lenders.
There are different types of insurance policies that cover your property. They range from a basic policy, to those that will provide a much broader range of protection. Not all policies and coverages are available in all states.
Most property insurance policies will cover damage caused by such perils as fire, windstorms, hail, lightning, theft or vandalism. There are other property policies that cover additional perils as well. Typically, floods and earthquakes are excluded. It’s important to talk to the insurance agent or representative to learn what your policy may and may not cover. And for those perils that are not covered, there may be supplemental insurance you can purchase.
