South Dakota Home Insurance
South Dakota home insurance offers property damage coverage for your home. There are a few policies that offer coverage to single family homes. The basic HO-2 policy covers damages cause by fire, smoke, vehicle damage, aircraft damage, water overflow from water heaters and air conditioners, theft, vandalism, explosions, and damages caused by riots. But that policy does not offer bodily injury liability. The HO-3 policy offers that protection as well as added property damage coverage. If you bought your South Dakota home with the help of a mortgage lender, they likely require you carry South Dakota home insurance for the duration of your loan.
