Home Inventory Checklist
Catastrophe can strike at any time, but before it does, you can be prepared with a home inventory checklist.
We urge homeowners and renters to make an accurate account of their possessions by filling out a home inventory checklist. Having a list of your possessions makes it that much easier to file an insurance claim in the event of damage or theft.
The home inventory checklist provides homeowners and renters a tool that allows them to record their possessions in each room of their house. Each page has examples of items that may be found in each room. The home inventory checklist allows the homeowner or renter to include the item’s manufacturer, model or serial number, date of purchase and purchase price. Homeowners and renters are also encouraged to include any sales receipts of items listed, and you may want to also include a picture of the item.
Once completed, the home inventory checklist should be kept in a safe, fire-proof place. The checklist can always be revisited and updated when new purchases are made.
