When to Update Your Homeowners Insurance
In Case of Lifestyle Changes
If you adopt a new lifestyle, hobby, or activity, you should update your homeowner’s insurance. A new lifestyle could mean a change in the risks your home is exposed to. If, for example, you retire, you may get a discount on your home insurance. Insurance providers assume that retired people have more time to perform maintenance on their homes. Buying a dog may cause your premium rates to increase.
If Your Current Policy Isn’t Enough
If you feel that your current insurance policy does not offer you adequate protection against liability claims or other risks, you may need to update it. Get a policy that offers you all the coverage you need. You may get additional coverage such as umbrella insurance for extra protection.
If You Have Made Improvements
Any improvements to your home increase its value. If, for example, you add a swimming pool, the value of your home will become higher than it was. It also increases your liability risks because other people could drown in your pool. In such cases, you will pay higher premium rates. Adding an alarm system may lower your premium rates because it reduces the risk of thieves stealing from your home. Contact your insurance provider every time you make improvements to your home and update your homeowner’s insurance.
