Does Home Insurance Cover Vandalism

Vandalism is the breaking of property or personage’s by unauthorized use or abuse. It refers to intentionally damaging or adopting a new look for someone or something without their consent.

Vandalism is a crime and can be filed as a hate crime, making it dangerous. The FBI reports that around 1 in 6 Americans has been the victim of vandalism at some point in their life.

Home insurance covers vandalism, though not always when it happens at your home. If someone vandalizes your car, for example, your insurance will not cover the cost of the repair because that would be a different type of invasion of property.

However, if someone comes to your home and breaks things, then yes, your home insurance will cover that! This article will talk about whether or not vandalism constitutes a threat to society and how to protect you and your family from this growing trend.

Vandalism is the intentional damaging or ruining of property due to anger or frustration. It can be relates to graffiti, picketing, or any other incident where property is damaged.

When vandalism occurs, the insured should consider getting home insurance. The home insurance will cover the costs of fixing the vandalism and/or buying a new one to replace what was destroyed.

There are some scenarios where home insurance does not cover everything because of a limit on total cost per incident, but this should be taken into account when writing your policy.

How to report vandalism

If you notice something wrong or damaged at your home, you can report it to the person responsible for your home insurance. This can be a neighbor, friend, or licensed business owner.

You may do this via phone or in person, or you may simply write down what they say and report them to your insurance company. If you know who did it, then write down who called and wrote that it was a call from a reputable business calling to schedule an inspection.

This way, the insurance company can contact the person to schedule an appointment with a inspector!
