Why do I Need Homeowners Insurance?
A standard homeowners insurance policy generally insures your home's structure (house,) and your tangible belongings in the event of a destructive occurrence, such as a fire or windstorm.
In addition, homeowners insurance policies generally include coverage for your personal liability—that is, legal responsibility—for any injuries and property damage to others caused by you or members of your family (including your household pets), unless they are specifically excluded from the policy.

Homeowner Insurance FAQ’s
Am I required to have homeowners insurance if I own a home?
Unlike driving a car, you can legally own a home without homeowners insurance. However, if you finance your home with a mortgage, your lender most likely will require you to have home insurance coverage to protect your home in case of damage cause by unforeseen circumstances, such as fires or natural disasters.
Why should I complete a home inventory?
When you purchase a home and a homeowners insurance policy, you should create an up-to-date home inventory to expedite a claim settlement if you ever need to make one. With a complete home inventory, your insurance company can verify property easier, which makes settling your claim easier. Plus, you can easily verify losses for your income tax return with an updated home inventory.
