Home insurance: why you need it, features

In Ukraine, the insurance of apartments and houses is not yet in great demand. Many are used to relying on themselves and thinking that natural disasters, force majeure or robbery raids will happen to someone else. Unforeseen situations cannot be prevented; it is much easier to avoid the serious financial damage associated with them. This is possible if you take out a home insurance policy.

Living space in a new building is most often at risk of being damaged, as in many neighboring ones, renovations are being carried out in parallel. If the property was purchased with a mortgage, then it is often offered to draw up an appropriate contract additionally on favorable terms.

This service also applies to old apartments purchased in the secondary housing. Any unpleasant situation can happen to them - flooding, fire, explosion of household gas. Eliminating all losses without reimbursement is not cheap, even if you are the injured party in the event of a flood. If you have a policy, all financial problems are solved much faster and easier.

• explosion of household gas;
• accidents that have arisen due to problems with utilities, a breakthrough in a water supply or sewer pipe;
• illegal intrusion - burglary, damage to the property of third parties (for example, as a result of flooding).
