Your Massachusetts Home Owners Insurance is important; it protects what is probably your greatest asset. The following coverage definitions should help you understand your Homeowners policy--but be sure to consult with us to assure that you have the right coverage.

Dwelling Coverage/Coverage A:

The dollar amount carried to cover your home and any structures attached directly to it. Ideally, the amount of coverage you carry should equal the cost of rebuilding your home after a total loss.

Other Structures/Coverage B:

Covers other structures set apart from the dwelling on the residence premises such as a detached garage. This coverage applies up to the limits provided in your policy and can be increased if necessary.

Personal Property/Coverage C:

This coverage provides worldwide coverage for personal property owned or used by the insured.

Loss of Use/Coverage D:

This coverage is available when you cannot live in your home due to a covered loss. It pays living expenses which go over and above your normal living expenses up to the limit provided in your policy.

Liability/Coverage E:

Liability coverage protects you in two ways. First, it provides for your legal defense against a liability claim--whether the claim is legitimate or not. Second, it will pay any court judgments against you up to the policy limit.

Medical Payments/Coverage F:

This pays emergency medical bills for anyone injured on your property or any injury caused by a member of your family or a pet regardless of where it happens. All bills are paid, up to your policy limit, whether or not you're legally responsible.

Homeowners policies have many other optional features available to you depending on your individual need. These include earthquake and scheduled personal property coverage.

Also offered are policies to insure your condominium, personal property (if you rent a home or apartment), rental property and watercraft . These policies have some of the same coverages as a homeowners policy with special coverages provided to accommodate each unique situation. Consulting with The R.L. Summers Insurance Agency is your best option to be certain of proper coverage.
