Homeowners Insurance in Wilmington, NC and Throughout Coastal North Carolina
A homeowners insurance policy is a multi-peril policy, which means it combines property and casualty coverages in the same policy. A multi-peril policy offers numerous advantages to consumers as it conveniently packages a range of coverages under one policy and is normally less expensive than if all coverages were purchased individually.
Homeowners insurance is sold as a personal package policy – designed to cover a broad spectrum of perils associated with owning or renting a home. A peril is an event that causes damage to a property, like fire or theft. Although insurance on your home is not required by North Carolina law, it is likely that your lender will require it if you have a mortgage. Additionally, if you rent, your landlord may require renters insurance as a part of the lease agreement.
Homeowners insurance also protects you against liability in the event that an accident occurs that results in an injury or someone else’s property gets damaged.
