If you own a home, condominium, or rent an apartment you can be covered by a homeowners insurance policy form. Technically speaking there are six different versions of a homeowner's insurance policy. A homeowner's insurance policy (depending upon the specific policy form) protects the home itself, detached structures on your property, your personal property, and can even provide money to cover extra expenses while your home is being repaired or rebuilt. Additionally a Homeowners insurance policy can provide liability protection against claims or lawsuits involving damages from bodily injury or property damage. Your homeowner's insurance policy can also cover medical payments to others. What is the most common Homeowners Insurance Policy? The HO3 is the most common policy purchased by consumers. Is this particular home insurance policy the best for your circumstances? It depends on your individual insurance needs. The biggest disadvantage with the HO3 homeowner's insurance policy is that your personal property (Coverage C) is only covered if the direct physical loss is caused by one of 16 different perils. Some companies may only insure against 15 named perils. So in other words if something happens to your personal contents of your home and it is not listed in one of the named perils it will not be covered. Please note common perils covered under the HO3. We cover direct physical loss to property insured under Coverage C â€“ Personal Property caused by:
1. Fire or Lightning 2. Windstorm or Hail This does not include loss: Caused directly or indirectly by frost, cold weather, ice other than hail, snow or sleet whether driven by wind or not; b. to property in a building caused by rain, snow, sand, sleet or dust unless the building is first damaged by the direct force of wind or hail, creating an opening through which the rain, snow, sand, sleet or dust enters; or c. to watercraft and their trailers, furnishings, equipment and motors unless inside a fully enclosed building. 3. Explosion 4. Riot or Civil Commotion 5. Aircraft, including self-propelled missiles and spacecraft. 6. Vehicles, meaning impact by a vehicle. 7. Smoke, if the loss is sudden and accidental. This peril does not apply to loss caused by smoke from agricultural smudging or industrial operations. 8. Vandalism or Malicious Mischief 9. Theft or attempted theft, including loss of property from a known place if it is likely that a theft has occurred. This peril does not apply to theft: (1) committed by an insured person or by any other person residing on the insured premises. (2) in or from a dwelling under construction or of construction material and supplies until completed and occupied. (3) from that part of a residence premises rented by an insured person to other than an insured person. b. This peril does not apply away from the residence premises to theft of: (1) property while in any other dwelling or its premises owned, rented or occupied by an insured person except while an insured person is temporarily residing there. Property of an insured person who is a student is covered at a residence away from home if the student has been there any time during the 45 days immediately before the loss. (2) watercraft, including its furnishing, equipment and outboard motors. (3) trailers and campers. 10.

In this peril, a plumbing system does not include a sump, sump pump or related equipment. 14.

This peril does not include loss on the residence premises while the dwelling is vacant, unoccupied or being constructed, unless you have used reasonable care to: a. maintain heat in the building; or b. shut off the water supply and drain the systems, waterbed, water heater, aquarium and household appliances of water. In this peril, a plumbing system does not include a sump, sump pump or related equipment. 15. Sinkhole Collapse. Sinkhole collapse means actual physical damage arising out of, or caused by, sudden settlement or collapse of the earth supporting such property and only when such settlement or collapse results from subterranean voids created by the action of water on limestone or similar rock formations. 16.
