    em, video surveillance, antenna, etc..);

- ┬źresponsibility" can be both during construction and in the whole year.The tariff will "dance" to the degree of complexity of the work.Fact - old or new communication plays an important role.Just like that, they hire someone for the job.The professional team of officially registered construction firms increases the chances not to overpay for insurance.Due to questionable workers respectable insurer may refuse to sign the treaty.

How to determine the price of the object of insurance?

sum insured (value of the property) determines the employee of the insurance company (the underwriter of property), then it agrees with you.If there is a contract with the developer, the documents that confirm the cost of building materials, etc., the amount determined by him.Otherwise, an employee of the insurance company inspects the facility and then calculates its value on their own or based on customer application form.

Usually when insuring expensive objects leaving the employee is required.No inspection insured cheap objects with a market value of 1.2 mln. Rubles.

On what lines and on what to insure?

traditional country buildings are insured against fire and water damage (eg pipeline rupture), natural disasters, illegal actions of third parties (theft and damage, for example, the front door).You can insure against vehicle collision, falling any objects (flying, trees, power lines).

There are a number of risks, from which you do not insure .This includes damage to or destruction of the home or property as a result of natural processes of aging, corrosion, fermentation, putrefaction and others.It does not cover damage resulting from military actions, strikes and other civil unrest, the impact of nuclear energy, confiscation by the authorities.

probability of occurrence of the insured event to determine the risk depends on the season.For example, in the summer - it fires in the spring - hurricanes, winter - stolen, the consequences of drifts, etc.Therefore, we can insure the property for the season, assessing the probability of risks and their character.However, it can hardly be called a cost-effective solution.Firstly, the cost of insurance for less than a year more expensive, and, secondly, would be a shame to get anything, once in the winter on the ashes.
