What makes the best home insurance policy?

There are a few factors you must consider seriously while buying home insurance to ensure that it is the best fit for you. Your home comes with a unique set of requirements that is very different from your neighbour’s and so tailoring your home insurance plan to suit those needs becomes top priority.

  • Coverage against unique risks: There are risks that can be unique to your location. If your home is located in a low-lying area, it definitely needs to be protected against the risk of flooding. If you happen to live in an area that is notorious for robbery and thieving, it would be wise to get a theft and burglary cover. 
  • Riders that can reduce premium: If your house has CCTV surveillance, 24x7 monitoring of entry and exit and any other security measure, this will be factored in while calculating your premium for the burglary cover resulting in reduced premium. It is best to declare this up-front while buying insurance.
  • Financial Rating of insurance provider: It is preferable to do some research to determine the financial rating of the provider to get an idea of their claim settlement capability.
  • Tenure of the policy: Higher the tenure, more attractive the policy! HDFC ERGO offers 5 year long term covers for home owners.
