Home insurance is essentially insurance policies that are in place to help protect the homeowner in case of damage or destruction of the home or the contents. Basic home insurance policies cover things like fire, damage from storms, and damage from theft or break in. It also often covers the cost of replacing items if your home is burglarized. It can also help cover the cost of medical bills of an individual that is injured on your property.
There are no requirements for home insurance if you own your home and do not have any sort of mortgage out on it or any sort of lien against the value of the home. Though you are not required to have home insurance on a home that you own outright, it is still a smart move as a home that is not insured will have to come completely out of pocket when it is being rebuilt.
The requirement for home insurance if you have a mortgage is that you must hold a policy that could help rebuild the home by the exact same specifications based on the current economy. That means that things like inflation, price of materials, and price of labor going up and down must be figured in to the amount of coverage that you are required by law to hold. It is a requirement that homeowners that have a mortgage hold insurance to help protect the interest of the lending agent should there be damage to the home.
