How Much Home Insurance Do You Need?
Every homeowner has different needs. Each should have enough coverage to cover the replacement value of their home, but that value varies. When calculating your home’s replacement value, keep in mind that this amount is different than the price you paid for the home. Instead, the replacement cost value of your home is a combination of the square footage and the amenities and fixtures within the home.
Most home insurance policies in California come with:
• Dwelling: Dwelling coverage helps cover the physical home from fire, smoke, lightning, wind, hail and more.
• Personal Possessions: Personal possessions coverage covers your personal belongings from the same dangers as covered under dwelling.
• Liability: Liability coverage for home insurance steps in if you or a family member causes bodily injury or property damage to someone else.
• Additional Living Expenses: Additional living expenses, or ALE, helps with the expenses of moving somewhere else temporarily while the home is being rebuilt or repaired after a disaster.
Common exclusions include floods and earthquakes. In California, earthquake insurance is crucial. Thankfully you can purchase this coverage as an additional policy.
What Does Renters Insurance Cover in California?
Renters insurance is similar to home insurance, as it works to cover your personal possessions, personal liability and additional living expenses in case of a disaster. The main difference is that renters insurance doesn’t cover dwelling. The physical dwelling of the rented property should instead be covered under your landlord’s insurance.
As with home insurance, renters insurance policies often exclude flood and earthquake damage. You can also purchase earthquake coverage to add to your renters insurance policy.
