Homeowners Insurance Bergen County | Named Perils
Knowing what the named perils are is an important part of understanding your New Jersey homeowners insurance. Peril is the name given by insurance companies to represent what is covered in a policy. Named perils is a term given to issues covered by a policy. This is important to recognize as many homeowners purchase additional policies to cover those perils not included in the standard policy. Your Bergen County insurance agent will walk you through what is included on your policy and what is not.
Common named perils include weather related incidents as well as theft. A good example of what is not included as a named peril is damage as the result of a flood or an earthquake. These incidents require additional policies.
Typical named perils include damages as a result of:
- Smoke Damage
- Civil Unrest
To many these issues seem unlikely but it is important to be prepared for anything and everything. Your Bergen County homeowners insurance policy will cover the standard claim issues that arise with a host of weather and human related issues not to mention water damage occurring from major plumbing issues like burst pipes or a cracked water heater. These named perils should be considered when weighing your coverage and help you determine any additional coverage that may be needed.
