Understanding South Carolina Homeowners Insurance

Will I be required to purchase South Carolina homeowner's insurance?

Once your loan is paid in full, you may cancel your South Carolina homeowner's insurance, but doing so puts your home—and your wallet—at great risk for loss.

Broad—protects your home from the basic 11 perils plus six more. Additional perils include weight of snow or ice, building collapse and water damage from home appliances.

Special—protects your home from all perils except for particular exclusions such as earthquake and flood.

How long will my policy last?

Typically, the duration of your South Carolina homeowner's insurance policy will be determined by your agent. It is important to understand that there are expiration dates on homeowner's insurance and your policy will need to be renewed at some point to keep it in tact. Be sure to ask your agent about these deadlines.

What if my agent decides not to renew my South Carolina homeowner's insurance?

By law, an agent or company can non-renew for any reason.
