Liability: This portion of the policy protects you if a person is injured at your home. It will help cover their medical bills as well as lost wages and funeral costs if necessary. It will also help pay your legal bills if your injured guest decides to sue you.

In addition, the property liability section of your policy will pay for damage you do to another person’s property. As an example, if your child puts a baseball through the neighbor’s window, your liability coverage will pay to replace the window.

Loss of Use: This coverage will help pay bills that you incur if you are not able to live in your home after it is damaged by a covered peril. As an example, if your home burns to the ground you may have to move into a hotel or rental while it is being rebuilt. This coverage will help cover bills such as the hotel, restaurant, and even dry cleaning.

Flood and Earthquake coverage: As mentioned above, a standard homeowners policy excludes coverage for flood and earthquake damage. If your home is at risk of flooding or earthquake damage you will need to purchase a separate policy to be fully protected.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost value?

Homeowners insurance is available in both actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost value (RCV). Knowing the difference is important:

Actual cash value: When valuing your personal possessions, an actual cash value policy will take depreciation into account. This means that your 10-year-old TV will be basically worthless according to your insurance company. While an ACV policy tends to be cheaper, if you have to make a claim you may be disappointed in your claim payout.

Replacement cost value: A RCV policy will replace your possessions with brand new items of similar quality regardless of how old they were at the time they were destroyed. While RCV policies are slightly more expensive, they are well worth the cost if you have to make a claim.
