Most homeowners will be required to carry a homeowners policy if they currently have a mortgage. The lender requires this information before refinancing or approving a new mortgage to protect their investment in the event of damage to the property. However, even if the home is fully paid off, having homeowners insurance is the best way to provide peace of mind and protection if the home is damaged through fire, vandalism, or a storm.
In the state of Florida, if a homeowner does not have the coverage required, the lender can choose an insurance company and purchase a policy that the homeowner must pay for. The homeowner cannot shop around for the most affordable policy, nor can they adjust the level of coverage, which may not provide the necessary coverage.
As your home insurance agency, we take the time to go over the policy and ensure your coverage requirements are met. Different types of home insurance offer different coverage levels and riders, which are additional coverage options added to the basic coverage.
As a general guideline, most homeowners insurance policies include coverage for the dwelling, which includes attached structures like decks and garages, other structures on the property like sheds, fences, and detached garages, as well as personal property coverage.
Personal property coverage includes the items in the home. This coverage provides payment for the items if they are damaged by a covered loss or stolen. Property liability protects the family in the event they are legally responsible for injuring a person or someone else’s property. Guest medical protection helps pay for medical bills if someone is injured on your property or in your home.
Finally, adding additional living expense coverage in Florida is a good decision. This allows you to stay at a hotel or other type of accommodation if your home is damaged due to a covered claim and is not livable until repairs are completed.
Keep in mind, homeowners insurance does not cover flooding or damage from hurricanes and other Acts of God or Acts of War. It is possible to add coverage to the basic homeowners insurance.
Additional coverage may be important to consider depending on where your home is located. Flood coverage is important if the area where the home is located is prone to flooding. Flood zones in the state have mandatory flood coverage requirements, but it may be practical and proactive to take out flood coverage if storm surge or heavy rainfall is a consideration.
Hurricane insurance is another consideration. This is not a standalone policy, but it is a deductible that is an add-on to the homeowners insurance policy. In areas of Florida where hurricanes are a factor it may be included in a catastrophic insurance policy.
