To ensure that your home is well protected against theft and the elements, it is important to make certain that your house is physically secure, and that you take out adequate household insurance cover. Unfortunately, natural disasters and incidences of theft occur throughout the world, more severely in some places than in others. South Africa unfortunately is notorious for theft and violent crime, therefore household insurance cover, and adequate security, is essential.
However, regardless of where you live, it is important to make sure that your home is adequately insured, to avoid financial issues in the event that your house is damaged by fire, water, wind or storms. In addition to insuring your house against natural damage, you also need to insure your home against human interferences, such as theft, as discussed above. Household insurance is therefore a required element in guaranteeing the physical and financial security of your home.
If you are concerned about the cost of insurance premiums, there are ways to lessen the cost of taking our household insurance. According to an article on www.insurance.za.org, entitled “Household insurance cover”, there are a number of different insurance options available that can reduce your insurance premiums. These different options will allow you to decide on a tailor made insurance plant that will suit your budget and your needs, by deciding on the amount of excess you will pay in the event that you claim from your household insurance policy.
As with homeowners insurance, the household insurance premium will be determined by several factors. These include the location of your home, the security measures that are installed on your property, and the construction of your home’s roof and walls, as non-standard walls and thatched roofs increase the risk and premium of household insurance.
Other factors that determine household insurance premiums are the number of claim-free years on your record, and the amount of excess you have agreed to pay when claiming from your insurance policy. Therefore the more solid your insurance history is, the less you will need to pay on monthly insurance premiums- which will contribute to the financial security of your home in the future.
