What does homeowners insurance cover?

Home insurance (or house insurance) is designed to financially protect your home and belongings. A home insurance policy may include three main types of coverage: structural (buildings), personal property (contents) and liability.

Homeowners insurance to protect what you love

Best homeowners insurance quotes Mauritius

Home insurance is not a requirement by law in Mauritius. However, for most people, their home is their largest asset and home insurance can offer you the peace of mind that your home and belongings are protected. That’s why getting the right homeowners insurance is so important.

When buying a home, your mortgage lender will typically require you to have homeowners insurance for the length of your mortgage. But you are not required to buy home insurance from the lender. You can buy this insurance from any provider. Be sure your current policy meets your needs and all discounts are applied that could lower your premium. When you compare insurance, you are making sure you have the right protection — and that you aren’t overpaying for your policy.

Home Insurance Basics

Home insurance (homeowner's insurance) is a type of insurance designed to financially protect your private residence and belongings. For example, if your home is damaged or destroyed in a fire, having the right insurance could mean the insurance provider will pay to replace your belongings and repair or rebuild your home.

Home insurance isn’t a legal requirement in Mauritius in the same way car insurance is if you want to drive on Mauritius roads. However in some cases you may be required to take out cover – for example, if you’re taking out a mortgage on a property your mortgage provider will insist on having buildings insurance as a condition of the loan. If you’re a tenant, you’ll only need to cover your belongings – having insurance for the building itself is your landlord's responsibility. Insuring your belongings is a more personal decision. Again, you’d have to find the money to replace your things if something happened and you didn’t have contents insurance.

Home insurance comes in two parts, buildings insurance and contents insurance, which can be bought separately or together from the same provider. Buildings insurance offers protection for the permanent structures in your home such as the roof, walls, floors, bathroom fittings and ceilings. External structures and installations like garages, pools, sheds and fences may also be covered. Contents insurance is designed to protect your belongings. If it’s something you’d take with you if you moved to a new house, it’s classed as contents. As a general rule, your contents are the things that you’d take with you if you moved to a new house. This includes things such as your furniture, your TV, other electronic equipment and home gadgets, any electrical items, your kitchenware, clothes and jewellery, and any soft furnishings such as cushions and curtains. The homeowner determines the amount for this coverage, but when you file a claim for personal property, the insurance company may require proof of ownership and value.

In all of the different insurance policies, there are some things that are excluded from cover. They are mostly due to wear and tear that gets worse due to lack of proper maintenance. If a home insurance claim could have been avoided with regular maintenance, you can expect it to not be covered - mold is a common example. Other common exclusions include infestations from termites, burst pipes, home businesses, and sewer back ups. Damages due to the bursted water pipes for some instances may be included in your coverage, while for other scenarios it is not. Be sure to check with your insurer about what is and isn’t covered to make sure you get the right home insurance product.

Insurance Quotes

Your own quotes will depend on how likely the insurer thinks you are to make a claim, the value of your building or contents and the level of cover you choose. Insurers use a whole host of factors to price your insurance - home security, risk of flooding and subsidence could all increase or decrease the cost. Every insurer uses a different formula to determine a customer’s home insurance rate. And the rate may vary significantly depending on a number of factors - house location and age, construction materials used, home security, risk of land-slice or flooding could all increase or decrease the premium. For example, if your home is built from concrete or brick, you might have a lower premium than someone with a home made of wood.
