Congratulations on the pending purchase of your first home! Besides the mortgage and taxes you will now be paying, you are also going to need to fork out some money for homeowner’s insurance. This insurance option is required by your mortgage lender, so make sure you understand what you are buying and how to use it if you should need to someday.
Why Homeowners Insurance Is Needed
Homeowner’s insurance is necessary to cover damages to a property for unforeseen events. Your lender will require it, because without it they could lose all of the money they invested into your home if you had a fire or other disaster. You need it because it protects your home and items within the home from damage or theft. It also protects you from liability for injuries that happen on your property.
Some insurance policies also cover living expenses if your home should become unlivable after a disaster. For instance, if you are forced to move to a hotel after a fire, your insurance policy may cover that cost, as well as some of the cost for the food you eat while repairs are underway.
How to Find Coverage
To find homeowner’s insurance, talk to your favorite Canada insurance provider. Most of them will offer homeowner’s policies. However, do not purchase a policy from the first lender that you find. Take some time to shop around, because the cost of home insurance varies tremendously from provider to provider. You can also talk to your mortgage broker or real estate agent to see if they have any good ideas about insurance providers. Friends and family who are homeowners may have names for you as well.
What Is Covered?
Most basic home insurance policies cover the same things. A basic policy will cover your belongings and your home against damages due to natural disasters, accidental fires, and theft or vandalism. These types of policies typically carry exclusions, including things like floods or earthquakes. To have these situations covered, you will need to purchase additional coverage or a rider to add this policy.
Discounts Are Available
In light of closing costs and the other expenses that surround a new home purchase, insurance is not typically a big expense. However, there are many things you can do to lower the cost of your premium if you need to. One is to increase your deductible. Canada insurance providers always lower premiums when a deductible is increased. Choose a deductible amount that you could pay if you had to, but make it as high as is feasibly possible if you need to lower your insurance cost. You can also get a discount by installing a home security system in your home to deter thieves. Insuring your home with the insurance provider that also carries your car insurances or some other insurance product will also earn you a discount.
Always Check Maximum Payouts
When shopping for home insurance, make sure that you check the maximum payouts on the policy. For instance, your garage may be covered, but it may only be covered for up to $2,000 worth of damage. You need a policy that has adequate coverage, because if you do have to make a claim someday, you do not need to be left holding a substantial bill. You will have many other expenses after a disaster to deal with, so make sure your insurance covers what it covers adequately.

Hong Kong Romantic Comedy from 1988 Joey Wong plays May, a girl who was born with one leg an inch shorter than the other and thus walks with a slight limp. One day while she and her family are sprucing up the dumpy supermarket they just bought, May is involved in an accident with a runaway taxi driven by Joe (Chow Yun-Fat). His insurance had expired two days before, so he ends up being a sort of indentured servant to May’s family to repay her medical costs and to assuage his guilt over having crippled her for life (or so he thinks, and May doesn’t disabuse him of the notion). Nina Li Chi plays Scarlet, May’s hot-to-trot cousin who has her sights set on the nerdy Joe. Joe falls for May, and Joe’s brother Sea falls for Scarlet and… well, you get the idea. From IMDB Sorry about the dodgy subs, it’s only for the first three parts then they’re fine.

AEI Event: ” The Deflating Bubble, Part VI: The Lessons of the Bubble and Crisis,” Cosponsored by the Professional Risk Managers’ International Association, October 22, 2009 www.aei.org Credit markets have recovered, although they still reflect massive government financial intervention. The financial panic of 2008 and 2009 has passed, though now bank failures are notably increasing. The net worth of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation is dropping, and estimates for its deficit are growing, but its obligations are ultimately US Treasury obligations. Average house prices seem to be stabilizing, but commercial real estate prices are dropping. Huge losses from the deflation of the great twenty-first-century bubble have been recognized or realized, and though more remain, financial markets have regained their appetite for risk. At this event, our expert Deflating Bubble panel defined the lessons of the whole twenty-first-century financial experience and made related recommendations for future financial policy. Speakers included AEI economists Desmond Lachman and John H. Makin; New York University professor of economics Nouriel Roubini; R. Christopher Whalen, managing director of Institutional Risk Analytics; and Thomas Zimmerman, managing director at UBS Investment Bank. AEI resident fellow Alex J. Pollock moderated.

Understanding your insurance coverage is always important, but it’s even more critical when you are a landlord. The responsibilities and duties that accompany being a landlord require that you are well aware of the insurance protection you own for yourself, your property and your tenants.
What is landlord insurance and why do I need it in the first place?
Landlord insurance provides cover for property owners who rent out their homes or buildings and generate income by doing so. Landlord insurance policies range in coverage protection but usually cover:
- Your rental building
- Legal expenses
- Other structures on your property (i.e. garages, barns, etc)
- Personal property
- Fire damage
- Theft and vandalism
- Loss of rental income
There is no shortage of reasons why you should have a landlord insurance policy but here are just a few of them:
- To protect you and your property from damages- If your building needs repairs after a storm, damage caused by a tenant or after being vandalized, insurance will cover your damages.
- To protect yourself from personal injury claims-If a tenant or a visitor to your property is injured then you won’t have to face personal liability if you have proper landlord coverage.
- To provide liability protection- Aside from personal injury claims, claims against you can be made in others forms too which is why having general liability protection is warranted.
- To cover legal and court costs- Defending yourself against liability claims can be very expensive and take away from your ability to run your property. Having insurance that will pay for your legal fees can help you effectively deal with any claims made against you without costing you a thing.
Before you purchase a land insurance policy you should first consider how much coverage you will need. How much is your property and its contents worth? How much income would you lose if you were unable to rent for an extended period? How much would it cost to totally replace the entire building if it were destroyed? Asking questions like these can help you to properly assess how much coverage you need.
You should also shop around. Getting insurance protection that you can trust and depend on is important, and so too is finding an insurer who offers affordable policies. Use personal referrals and the internet to compare prices on land insurance policies and to get the best prices.
Choose the right landlord insurance policy, choose 1Cover.
A Landlord Insurance Policy can save you the stress of owning an investment home. So get cheap landlord insurance today.

When you buy a car, you need to get insurance for it. It’s as simple as that. You would be breaking the law if you didn’t and yet no one ever really thinks about a time when there was no such thing as car insurance.
So how long ago did it first come about?
Its origins lie with the ancient Chinese – long before the modern car was even thought of. They used to insure their ships against anything that may happen to jeopardise the vessel or the cargo that was on it.
When the modern motor car came along it would be some years before car insurance was required for it. The car first appeared as the 19th century turned into the 20th century, but since very few people could afford to buy one, they were considered something of a luxury at first. Insurance wasn’t even thought of.
Perhaps unbelievably, the First World War would have to take place before any thought of insurance came about. As the 1920s got underway, more and more cars were starting to find their way onto Britain’s roads.
Now whenever you buy something new, it takes you some time to get used to how to use it. The situation was no different when the motor car first arrived en masse. As you might expect, this led to more than a few accidents starting to happen.
Most people know that there are some forms of insurance that are required by law, and some that are optional. This is how car insurance was to begin with. Policies were created and offered for sale when all these accidents started happening, but they didn’t become a legal requirement until around 1930.
In short, it took some three decades for car insurance as we know it now to come into force. The situation was much the same in many other parts of the world too. In America the requirement for car insurance came into force three years earlier than it did in the UK.
Modern times have seen other changes to the insurance that is offered. Back in the early days a car insurance policy would be exactly the same no matter who you bought it from. Now you can get quotations from lots of different companies and then choose the one you like the most.
Car insurance has certainly come a long way since it was first made a requirement more than seven decades ago. Many car insurance companies are now available to give instant quotes online. That would have seemed unimaginable to people who lived during the 30s and had one of the earliest motor cars of all!
It has developed a lot over the years, but it still has the same purpose it had right at the beginning. It’s good to know some things do stay the same.

When I was hit by a drunk driver, the last thing I wanted was to mess with insurance. The other guy’s insurance company was willing to pay for massage therapy. But I didn’t have the time. And as a result, I was not fully protected.
Massage Therapy is one of the most effective healing tools available. It calms the muscles and mind down after a traumatic incident. It increases blood flow to the muscles, which increases healing. A great massage therapist will ask about the accident, and learn which muscles were tightened and harmed during the accident. As a result, your body will heal. Massage Therapy is the science of healing muscle. It is the only industry focused exclusively on healing muscle tightness and soreness. Seek out a massage therapist immediately if you are in a car accident to prevent those muscles from staying tight because of whiplash or injury.
I have outlined the steps describing how to get massage therapy for a car accident (or any accident) with the other person’s insurance company paying for it. These steps are the first 4 steps you should take immediately. Within 24 hours of the accident, take these steps to protect yourself. You must act quickly, or you may forfeit your care to the insurance company’s policies. To ensure you are well, follow these 4 steps below.
1. VISIT a Doctor or Chiropractor for a Doctor’s Note
You need a doctor’s recommendation for a massage. It’s a medical recommendation, like any other activity or prescription. Schedule a single doctor’s visit, and have your doctor recommend massage therapy as treatment. If you are injured on the weekend, visit a 24 hour clinic. Any doctor can prescribe massage therapy if you ask for it. But you must ask for it.
2. TREAT Yourself Immediately
The insurance companies have a policy called having a “Gap in Care.” It means that if you are not getting your treatments consistently and immediately after the accident, then you are not really hurt. If you are going to get massage therapy to remedy accident pain, then start immediately. And don’t stop getting regular treatments until you are better. Changes to your treatment plan or providers is fine, but do NOT stop getting some sort of treatment, or the insurance companies will claim you have a “gap in care.” And they will not accept your claim.
3. BEWARE of Delayed Pain
Whiplash can show up several weeks after accident. What happens is that the body goes into hyper-protection mode, as a safety measure. It pours adrenaline, and other chemicals into your body for several weeks to protect you from hurting (so you can escape the dangerous land of other cave people, ya know, with deadly mountain lions and other creatures). Then your body starts repairing weeks later. That repair period is when the pain really start.
Often, you won’t seek immediate treatment because you feel fine, then you start feeling really bad weeks later. Continue your massage therapy treatments for at least a month to make sure you prevent serious whiplash from affecting your productivity. The insurance companies understand this too. So continue treatment for at least month. And longer if you are genuinely in pain.
4. ASK Questions of the Insurance Company
Some insurance companies pay as you go. Other insurance companies want to pay out the claim at the end of treatment. Ask them lots of questions on their process. The adjustor is simply following a set of rules. If you can learn the rules, you can make the most of the claim (and save yourself a lot of headaches). Work within the system, not against it. Some great questions include, “How does the claim process work?” “Can I get checks as I submit receipts, or do you pay out all at once towards the end.”
Regardless of what happened, everyone involved wants to see you get better fast. So act quickly. And start a consistent treatment, and continue with it, until you are better. Good luck and Feel Better!
