Premium and coverage: Carefully evaluate the different risks that your house may go through in the future. Consider the geographical condition of the area and make sure your home insurance covers these risks. If you buy a policy without checking the kind of risks covered by the policy, then it’s of no use. Consequently, you feel cheated. Also check if the home insurance premium fits your budget.

Claim settlement ratio: A good insurance company is judged by the time it takes to settle claims. The very purpose of insurance will be defeated, if you do not get a claim when required. Do not buy policies from insurers with low claim settlement ratio. Always make sure to check the claim settlement record of insurers before zeroing in on the insurer.

Mis-selling home insurance: Sometimes your insurance agent or bank will try to convince you to buy a home insurance plan. Make sure to read the terms and conditions of the policy and the exclusions thoroughly, before investing. Your bank or agent may not disclose the terms or the exclusions and you might feel cheated later on.
