Home is where we spend most of our daily lives. For many people, their home is part of their self-definition, which is why we do things like to decorate our houses and take care of our lawns, etc. And when it comes to buying a home insurance policy one often hesitates as to which home insurance in Dubai is the best. 

Buying home insurance in the UAE is worth every penny since it can save you any unexpected financial losses. Unfortunate events can occur at any given time to anyone & due to this very fact, you must consider buying the perfect home insurance policy in Dubai as per your requirements. 

Here are some top reasons why you must invest in a Home Insurance in Dubai,

Protection against legal liabilities

Liability insurance (a section of your home insurance policy) protects you from financial losses from property damage and personal injury to others if you are found legally responsible for it. This also covers damages caused by your family members. Liability protection covers legal expenses, depending on your policy.

Common liability also assists in such claims that include you being found liable for causing injury like any person tripping and falling in your house, or your tree or its branches fall over onto a neighbor’s property, causing damages to their property, etc.

The same concept applies to Tenant’s Liability coverage wherein if the policyholder is a tenant, then he is covered for expenses that he/she might incur for the damages that he might cause to the landlord’s property.

Natural Disasters are very real

Accidents can happen in the blink of an eye, even in the comfort of your home. Home Insurance in Dubai usually covers two things- the house, and the contents in it. Clothing, furniture, appliances, and most of the other contents of your home are covered if they’re destroyed in an insured disaster. 

If you live in a “high-risk” area then this factor is of significance to you. Generally, natural disasters like floods, hurricane or tornados are not covered by a basic home insurance policy if you live in a high-risk area. Your home insurance provider can put a special clause to cover a particular type of natural calamity. 

Once a natural disaster knocks down your property, your insurance provider should help fix your home and provide the assistance you require.

Man-made Dangers

Despite the most intricate safety devices and security apparatuses, real-world threats such as burglaries, crimes, riots, etc. are a real risk of modern life. If an intruder breaks in(which we hope never happens) and robs valuables from your house, you are covered. Most policies include coverage for your valuables even if it is away from the home, subject to limitations (you may ask your insurance provider in advance)

However, the private property limits are initially set as a percentage of your home coverage, which determines how much your insurance provider can reimburse you for the theft. 

Carefully set sensible limits based on the value of items in your house so you don’t end up losing a big chunk of your much-deserved claim amount during the process.


The best way to buy perfect home insurance is by doing your research before investing your hard-earned money and time. If you are unsure then you must speak or consult with an insurance expert before making a final purchase.
