Factors that affect home insurance costs in Nova Scotia.
Home insurance premiums are determined by many factors. Here are some to keep in mind when getting an insurance quote.
Where you live
The frequency, type and cost of claims in your area is factored into your home insurance premium. Homes located in areas with frequent or more costly claims will typically be more expensive to insure.
Distance from a fire hydrant
Close proximity to a fire hydrant or station can lower your home insurance premium because a potential fire can be put out faster, potentially resulting in less damage to your home.
Your claims history
Prior home insurance claims can indicate home systems that are out of date. Older plumbing, electrical or heating systems present an increased risk of leaks or fires, which may result in a higher premium.
Age and condition of your roof
An older roof is more likely to be a contributing factor in water damage to your home or require significant repairs. If your roof is 15 years old or older, your premium may be higher.

Insure your home and your personal belongings with coverage that fits your needs.
Home insurance can cover your home and its contents in the case of theft, loss or damage to the inside and outside of your home or property.
It could also help you cover additional living expenses if you're temporarily unable to live in your home such as living in a hotel or a rental home.
While the government doesn't require you to purchase home insurance, your mortgage-holder probably will - at least enough to cover its share of ownership.
There are various kinds of home insurance that cover general and specific kinds of damage to your home, and you should research your options carefully.
You can also buy specialized insurance to cover a condominium, home business, or other kind of property or valuables found in your home.
Home insurance may also include liability coverage for people who are hurt on your property.
Some insurance policies require that you estimate the total value of your possessions and the building itself.
