Maryland home insurance protects you and your family against loss from theft, fire, accident and other calamities that happen in homes across the country daily.
Eventually, most everyone will be touched by at least one of these situations in some way. It is important to prepare now with the Maryland homeowners insurance you need, rather than waiting until disaster strikes.
If you finance your home, the bank will also require you to insure it for at least the amount of your home loan. Most insurance policies require insurance coverage of at least 80 percent of your home's replacement value.
In addition, your Maryland home insurance policy protects you from financial strain by paying for any bodily injury or property damage situation in which you are held liable.
Compare Policy Types
Many types of homeowners insurance policies are available, so examine offerings closely to determine which type best suits your needs.
Most Maryland home insurance companies offer the following standard types of coverage:
Broad Form (HO-2)—covers only specifically listed "perils" (causes of loss)
Special Form (HO-3) —the most purchased policy. Offers property and liability coverage against all losses on your home and property, except those specifically excluded.
Tenants Form (HO-4) —provides coverage for your personal property in a rental situation. Does not cover the building itself.
Condominium Form (HO-6) —covers your personal property and any owned portion of your condominium.
Market Value or Older Homes Form—Insures your home based on "market value," (what it would have sold for just before the damage occurred.)
These policies offer varying amounts of protection against property damage, liability, medical payments and additional living expenses. Talk to a licensed, qualified Maryland home insurance agent to determine what protection levels you need.
