You’ve just bought a new house! You’ll be planning your move, once you’ve signed the papers at the notary. Before you start packing, call your insurer to make sure your new property is insured.
Let your insurer know when you’ll be moving. He’ll ask you questions about your new home. He’ll need to know its
so that he can update your file. The cost of your home insurance could change, either up or down.
This is also a good time to reassess whether you’ve got sufficient coverage. You may have taken this opportunity to buy new furniture. You should also take a close look at coverage amounts. For example, if there’s a pool at your new house, you must purchase the Spa and Swimming Pool endorsement to make sure the swimming pool is covered.
Are you moving in with your new partner? Adjust the coverage amount to reflect the combined value of your possessions. And don’t forget to put your home insurance policy in both your names!
