You have a lot to coordinate when moving home, don’t let insurance get lost in the midst.
From packing, to scheduling movers, to dealing with piles of paperwork, there is a lot to get done in the process of moving home. It is important not to let your homeowners insurance policy be forgotten, as you may need it more than ever during this time.
Just as your old home is not your new home, you cannot keep your existing homeowners insurance policy. Your new home may be a different zip code, have more features, and be built of different material and this will affect the insurance coverage and cost. If you have a mortgage, your lender may require you to cover a specific amount of insurance on your new home.
In most cases, you’ll need proof of insurance at closing when you buy the new home. You can call your agent in advance of closing to discuss a timeline for the move, so that coverage remains in place. More often than not, moving dates are pushed back, and it is important to keep your insurance agent up to date with any changes.
