Having a place of your own is exciting and can be seen as a major milestone in life. It doesn't matter if it's a house or an apartment, own or rent, big or small, or where it is--it's yours. Unfortunately, a home can be stressful and carry a lot of responsibilities.

Between the upkeep and maintenance costs, there are a lot safety issues that can bring harm to your home and your family. These hazards can be a product of the environment or from the actions of others. You worry about what you would do if faced with these hazards and wonder if your home is protected.
