FAQs about HOME INVENTORY

Please review answers to some frequently asked questions:

My insurance policy covers my home's contents. Why do I need an inventory?

The policy states a maximum coverage value for the home's contents, but when submitting a claim, the burden of proof identifying exactly what was actually lost is the homeowner's responsibility. A well-documented home inventory meets that requirement.

What is replacement cost coverage and what is actual cash value coverage?

Replacement cost coverage is insurance that pays the amount needed to replace damaged personal property with items of like kind or quality without deduction for depreciation. Actual cash value coverage is insurance under which the policyholder receives an amount equal to the current value of the lost or damaged property. If you have 'actual cost value' coverage you will be reimbursed for what the lost items are worth which is usually only a portion of the real cost of replacing them. Please discuss this with your insurance agent to see what is best for you.
