A break-in resulting in a theft is something that no one is ever completely prepared to deal with. One way to prepare to deal with such an unfortunate event is to have an inventory of your belongings kept in a safe place. Many home insurance companies will require you to complete an inventory in order to pay out on a theft claim. Having an inventory of your belongings can help speed up the claims process. After a theft this may be a difficult task to accomplish because you are just going off memory and it is possible you could miss some items.
Following is a link to a Home Inventory Checklist provided by the Texas Department of Insurance.
Along with the checklist they include some helpful hints to complete it.
After having completed the inventory it may be also be a good idea to check with your agent to review your Homeowner’s insurance policy and make sure that you are carrying the adequate coverage should a claim ever occur.
