Home Inventory Checklist

If your personal property is ever stolen, damaged, or destroyed, you will have to file a homeowners insurance claim to receive proceeds under your homeowners policy. Use this handy checklist to document vital information about your belongings. Keep the list in a safe place to provide an accurate record of your possessions if you ever suffer a loss.

  • Include model and serial numbers, if available, in the description
  • Take photographs or videotapes of your possessions
  • Have valuable items and collectibles appraised
