Filing a claim after a loss from theft or a natural disaster inevitably requires showing what you lost and how much your lost possessions are worth. The more accurate your records, the less likely the problems.
Here’s how to finesse the home inventory:
• Make a video of your belongings and, as you focus on an item, record a verbal description of the item.
• Take digital photos, too. Include close-ups of individual items as well as images of each room and everything inside closets, cabinets and drawers.
• Compile a list including details such as brand names, serial numbers, purchase dates and prices. Keep receipts.
• Store your inventory records away from your residence.
