What does apartment insurance include?

The cost of the insurance is determined as the rebuilding value of the structure. Contents insurance: Insures the mobile accessories in the home (furniture, decorative items, clothing and contents of closets, and of course valuables such as jewelry, and Jewish ritual objects).
Third party liability: Insurance that covers the liability of the insured to a third party to any person that does not reside in the house that may be injured by the insured. The insurance covers the household workers.
