If you have a mobile home (or you are thinking about buying one), you may not need or want to get insurance for it. However, there are some good reasons why you might want to insure your new home.
Here are some good reasons why you may need insurance for your mobile home.
Your mortgage company may require insurance. If you are taking out a loan in order to purchase your mobile home, there is a good chance that they will require insurance for it. They want to make sure that it is going to be protected while you are paying for it.
You can’t afford to replace it. You should also consider getting insurance for your mobile home for peace of mind. If you can’t afford to replace it if something happens to it, you are going to want to know that you can get it fixed (or a new one). You may also want to remember that it will also help to replace your belongings if something happened.
So, what is covered with mobile home insurance?
Mobile home insurance is similar to homeowners insurance and it covers the following:
Physical damage. Your home insurance will pay for any damage to your home and any structures that are on your land. This may include a deck or a shed in your backyard. You may need some extra insurance for floods and natural disasters, depending on where you live.
Liability. Liability insurance will cover your expenses if someone is injured at your home and they decide to sue you. However, this won’t cover any accidents and injuries for those who live there.
What else can you do?
If you don’t want to get full coverage for your mobile home, you may want to look into a named perils policy. These policies are cheap, but they only cover certain things. This may be a good option for you and your home.
