Michigan Homeowner Insurance Requirements

While the state of Michigan does not require residents to carry insurance on their home or personal property, the majority of lenders will. In most cases, if you finance your home, your lender will protect their financial interest in the property by requiring you to purchase coverage for the buildings.

In the event you fail to provide proof of coverage, your lender will likely purchase a homeowners insurance policy themselves and make payments on it using your escrow funds. This is known as “force-placed” insurance.

Even if you are not financing your home, purchasing homeowner insurance is a wise idea, as replacing your home and possessions if they suffer damage could be quite costly.

FAQs About Homeowners Insurance In Michigan

What affects my homeowners insurance rates?

The age of your home, roof, and materials are one of the most influential factors because they become more susceptible to damage from external and internal conditions as they age. Improvements made to your home can drive up your premium because they are more expensive for your insurance carrier to replace, so the cost of materials and construction for a home remodeling project will likely get figured into your rates.

Known in the insurance world as attractive nuisances, pools and trampolines can increase your premium, along with wood-burning stoves and owning a certain breed of dog that’s considered aggressive. Conversely, installing a home security system may reduce your premium.

Finally, previous claims can cause a spike in your homeowner premium because insurers perceive you as a higher risk. If the claims start to stack up, you may lose your coverage altogether.

Which home insurance terms should I learn?

  • Premium – The rate charged by a homeowner insurance company to provide coverage and pay claims.
  • Deductible – The amount of money for which you are responsible to pay before your insurance company will cover the remainder of the claim. A high deductible usually means a low premium and vice versa.
  • Limit – The maximum amount an insurance policy will pay out for a covered loss.
  • Liability coverage – Covers losses for bodily injury or property damage suffered by others while on the homeowner’s property, as well as medical and legal expenses accrued as a result of lawsuits.
  • Property coverage – Protection of property or land against damage or loss.
  • Dwelling coverage – Protection for the physical structure of your home.
  • Guest medical coverage – Covers medical expenses incurred by anyone who sustains injuries while on your property.

How do I compare homeowner insurance quotes?

It is imperative to compare apples-to-apples in order to get accurate quotes. This means comparing the set of coverages, deductibles, and limits across every single insurance company. Most homeowner insurance policy terms are 12 months in length, so this detail should remain consistent.

While you may be tempted to choose a lower insurance rate, remember that your deductible will be higher. Along the same lines, a higher insurance rate will result in a lower deductible. It is up to you to decide which situation is right for you.

Along with the basic coverage, take into account any additional coverage you may need. For example, if you have expensive appraised jewelry at home, you may want to consider purchasing scheduled personal property insurance.
