Ohio Home Insurance: A Brief Overview

More than 100 companies are currently authorized to sell Ohio home insurance. This creates a competitive market, meaning that insurers employ competitive pricing in order to sell home insurance policies to Ohioans.

Acquiring home insurance is an important part of protecting your home and its contents against unexpected events. Ohio homeowners insurance may pay to repair or rebuild your home as a result of damage, provide you with temporary shelter if your home becomes uninhabitable, and cover damage to your home's contents and your personal belongings in the event they are stolen or damaged. It may also cover medical expenses for anyone injured on your property, damage to another's property, and legal fees and court costs if you are found liable.

"Why should I buy home insurance?"

If you finance your home, the bank will require you to insure it for at least the amount of your home loan. However, most insurance policies require insurance coverage of at least 80 percent of the home's replacement value.

In addition, your Ohio home insurance policy protects you from financial duress by paying for any bodily injury or property damage situation in which you are held liable. Your home insurance company will act on your behalf by negotiating a settlement, defending you in court and paying any judgments against you.

When the unexpected happens, no Ohioan can afford to be without home insurance.

Cost Determination

The cost of your Ohio home insurance is determined by many factors. Some of these include:

  1. The policy type and coverage amount you select
  2. Additional coverages you purchase
  3. The deductible level you choose
  4. Where you live
  5. Your credit and claims history
  6. Your home's construction, age and condition
  7. Distance from fire protection
  8. Any discounts applied

All these factors together culminate in customary home insurance cost levels for Ohio home insurance policies.

Your Options

Many types of Ohio home insurance policies are available, so examine offerings closely to determine which policy type best suits your needs. Most Ohio home insurance companies offer the following types of coverage:

  • Broad Form (HO-2)—Covers only specifically listed perils.
  • Special Form (HO-3)—The most common policy. Offers property and liability coverage for your home and other structures on your property. Protects against all risks except those specifically excluded.
  • Tenants Form (HO-4)—Provides coverage for a renter's personal property, but not the building itself.
  • Comprehensive Form (HO-5)—Covers your home and your personal property against most types of damage except earthquakes, floods and wars.
  • Condominium Form (HO-6)—Covers a condominium owner's personal property, as well as any portion of the building he or she owns.
  • Market Value Form (HO-8)—Insures the structure based on "market value," or what it would have sold for just before damage occurred.
