Belize Home Owners Insurance

Belize home insurance

At RF&G Insurance, we offer protection for the roof over your head and everything under it! Our Homeowner’s Insurance Policies protect you from loss or damage to both your home and its contents from a wide range of perils including Hurricane, Fire, Flood and even Burglary. Our policies were created with the customer in mind and are designed to suit the type of home you own.

Your Home

The home that you live in will most likely be the largest investment you make, so be sure to protect it with an RF&G Homeowner’s Policy. To be certain your home is adequately insured, get an appraisal or survey done on the building, and be sure to include any other structures such as a swimming pool, fence, patio, or pier. If you are unsure about how much your home should be insured for, contact us or any one of our Agents countrywide to help you make sure you are fully protected.

Contents

What’s inside your home can be just as important as the walls and roof that make up the outside. Make a list of all your personal belongings and how much it would cost to replace them. It is important to have enough insurance to cover everything.

You might need to list valuable items separately. Some policies don’t cover these items, or limit how much you can claim to replace them. A valuable item might be a big screen TV, a brand new Laptop, or paintings and other valuable pieces such as carvings, statues, jewelry, etc.

It is a good idea to have some photos, receipts, or other evidence of the value of the items you are insuring. This will help if you are making a claim by verifying what you had stated.

The "Average Clause"

What is it? Why is it important for you to understand?

Know the "Average Clause"

Let’s say the replacement value of your building is $100,000, but you decide to insure only half its value, $50,000. Then a hurricane strikes! Your building is badly damaged and repairs will cost around $50,000, the same amount you insured for. Do you have sufficient coverage?

YOU DO NOT!
Since you only insured your building for half of its value, your claim amount will be reduced to half the amount for the cost of repairs, $25,000.

TIPS:

  • Have an appraisal or survey done on your building to make sure you have an accurate and current valuation of your building
  • If you have a swimming pool, fence, patio, pier or any outside structure, include these as separate items in your valuation
  • Make sure to distinguish between the value of your building and the value of the contents inside
  • If you are not sure that your building is adequately insured, contact us or any one of our Agents countrywide to help you make sure you are fully protected.
