If you had been victimized by theft, whether this happened in or out of your house, your homeowner's insurance could allow you to restore your stolen items. Additionally, your coverage may assist you in covering the cost of restoration to any property destroyed by a robber.
Unfortunately, some forms of theft are not protected by your homeowner's insurance coverage. So, here is the necessary information you need to know if you want to secure yourself from financial loss in the event of theft.
Is Theft Covered by Home Insurance?
You might have coverage or theft if you availed of an HO-3 policy, the most prevalent form of homeowners insurance. Theft is one of the stated risks that come standard with this policy. Here are three items that make up conventional insurance to provide your theft coverage.
Is Theft Still Covered If I'm on Vacation?
Your property insurance might also extend to you when you travel, so if your baggage is robbed while on a trip, your items should still be insured if the damage exceeds your deductible.
However, if your home is robbed while you are away, you will most likely be insured for the damage to your property and the stolen valuables. But, if you are absent from your house for an extended time, your insurer may deem it unoccupied and refuse covering.
Thus, if you are thinking of going on a long vacation, call your insurance carrier to explore your alternatives ahead of time.
Stay Insured for Less Loss
Your house may contain high-value items and goods that have emotional worth for you and your family, which is why, in the unfortunate case of theft, having the appropriate home insurance coverage is important.
