If you own the house, your homeowners insurance should take care of some of that. If you are a renter, ALWAYS get Renters insurance. There are too many people renting places that actually burn down, and the only one who benefits from that is the Owner! NOW! about the robbery! From now on, anything you have left, or buy anything new, PLEASE make a list of any Serial Numbers on the items. Ones that don't have one, Scratch a special mark somewhere on it and add the image to your list. You can also photograph everything, especially jewelry Believe me! I've been there, TWICE!!! It feels like you have been raped! You may not like dogs, but I got one, and stopped me from being robbed the third time! Yes, I know, some places don't allow animals! I didn't care and got one anyhow!! Right after the Police left, I started calling pawn shops, and after the third call I hit the jackpot!! Unfortunately, I had to PAY to get my stuff back, no thanks to the Cops! I did the job for them! GRRRR!
