Insuring your home

As a home owner you will need a home insurance (fire insurance, …) or as a renter (renter civil liability insurance, …). 

Although it is technically not legally required, few people accept to take the risk by themselves and landlords often ask for you to acquire insurance when renting, and as a home owner it is in your best interest to have insurance for your home. These insurances come with options: content, theft... or even family insurance.

Action steps

  • Contact a bank or insurer for a quote. Some of them offer the full process of getting a quote and subscribing to the insurance online.
  • Compare prices and conditions.

Attention points

Make sure to verify your rental agreement to see which insurances are included and which ones are not.
