The majority of Homeowner policies provide Open Peril coverage on your Home and Other Structures (such as a garage or shed) on your property. Open Peril states that it covers direct physical loss with named exclusions. Your personal property is covered by a list of 16 named perils typically covering against loss by fire, lightning, smoke, windstorm, hail, vandalism, damage by vehicle, water from the bursting of a plumbing system and theft. A deductible will be applied to each occurrence.
In addition, the policy provides for Personal Liability and Medical Expenses to Others which results from injury cause by you or on your premises. It also covers limited damage to the Property of Others that you may have in your possession.
Coverage for Renters is also available for Personal Property as well as your Personal Liability. Most apartment complexes will require a policy before you take possession. Their demand for this coverage is because the Personal Liability part will cover fire damage caused by your negligence up to your limit of liability on the policy.
