Homeowner’s Insurance also known as hazard insurance is an insurance policy that combines various personal insurance protections, which can include losses occurring to one’s home, contents, loss of use, or loss of personal possessions of the homeowner as well as liability insurance for accidents that may happen at home or at the hands of the homeowner within the policy territory. Homeowner’s policy is referred to as a multiple-line insurance policy, meaning that it includes both property insurance and liability coverage, with an indivisible premium, meaning that a single premium is paid for all risks.
The cost of homeowner’s insurance often depends on what it would cost to replace the house, not the land and which additional endorsements or riders are attached to the policy. The insurance policy is a legal contract between the insurance carrier and the named insured. It is a contract of indemnity and will put the insured back to the state the insured was in prior to the loss.
Vehicle insurance is designed to cover risk of financial liability or the loss of a motor vehicle the owner may face if their vehicle is involved in a collision resulting in property or physical damages. Some states require a motor vehicle owner to carry some minimum level of liability insurance. The privileges and immunities clause of Article IV of the U.S. Constitution protects the rights of citizens in each respective state when traveling to another. A motor vehicle owner typically pays insurers a monthly fee, often called an insurance premium. The insurance premium a motor vehicle owner pays is usually determined by a variety of factors including the type of covered vehicle, the age and gender of any covered drivers, their driving history, and the location where the vehicle is primarily driven and stored.
