Insuranceopedia Explains Residence And Outside Theft Insurance

Most property insurance covers for losses that happen within the insured property, especially a building and its contents. But the coverage might not apply to the contents when they are used elsewhere, such as a laptop that was stolen while it was not within the bounds of the insured property.

To cover these risks, a policyholder can ask to add riders to their policy. Each rider can cover a specified item. The policyholder pays an additional amount for every rider but each will cover a loss even if it takes place outside the policyholder’s home.
