Hazard insurance - Insurance against losses caused by perils which are commonly covered in policies described as a "Homeowner Policy".

Highest and best use - The reasonably probable and legal use of vacant land or an improved property that gives it the highest value for what is physically possible and financially feasible to build and appropriately support.

Hold-over tenant - A tenant retaining possession of a leased property after a lease's expiration.

Home inspection - An examination of a building's structure and mechanical systems to determine a home's safety. A home inspection makes the potential home buyer aware of any repairs that may be needed.

Homeowner's insurance - Insurance that covers damage to the insured's home and personal assets included in the policy's coverage. Liability claims made against the insured are subject to the policy terms, conditions, provisions, losses not insured provision and exclusions.

Home warranty - A warranty that offers protection for mechanical systems and attached appliances against unexpected repairs not covered by homeowner's insurance. Coverage extends for a specific period of time and does not include the home's structure.

Homeowner insurance - An insurance policy that combines protection against damage to a dwelling and its contents along with protection against claims of negligence or inappropriate action that resulted in someone's personal injury or property damage.
