Utah Home Insurance
Utah home insurance offers the necessary property damage coverage for you home. When you buy a home in Utah with the help of a mortgage lender, they usually require you to carry Utah homeowners insurance for the length of the loan. There are a few policies that deal with single family homes. The HO-2 policy, a basic policy, covers damages caused by fire, smoke, vehicles, aircraft, water overflow from water heaters and air conditioners, theft, vandalism, explosions, and riots. The HO-3 policy, a broad more popular policy, covers these perils, but also provides bodily injury liability protection. This coverage pays for medical expense if someone has an accident on your property.
