No matter the type of vacation home or the location, you should consider insurance coverage to protect your oasis. There are multiple policies available for your lake home, with the primary form of coverage being homeowners insurance. At Jean Deese Agency, we’re ready to help you sort through your options for coverage.
Types of Lakehouse Insurance
There are a few typical policies recommended for lake homes. Coverage typically includes homeowners insurance. Helps cover your dwelling, personal property, structures, and your home. It would help if you considered covering all of the following on your property:
· Detached garages
· Large storage sheds
· Jet skis
· Golf carts
· Swim rafts
· Water trampolines
· Boat lifts
· Seasonal docks
Additional Coverage Options
It’s important to insure all elements of your vacation home to keep your belongings and others safe. There are additional coverage options for events such as floods, septic runoffs and additional umbrella coverages to protect liabilities:
· Flood insurance—This can help cover water damage to your property in case of a flood or excessive rainfall.
· Septic runoff protection—This can help cover pumping out and maintaining your septic tank and cover damages and repairs if runoffs occur. If septic runoff protection is not part of your homeowners insurance policy, septic tank companies offer protection. Be sure to check with an agent about what your policy includes.
· Umbrella policy—Can help protect personal liabilities. Injuries on your property, autos, boats and docks are typically covered.
It’s common to need multiple coverages to cover your lake home. Be sure to connect with an agent to get started with a policy.
