The owners policy provides coverage for the dwelling, other structures, private property, and loss of use. They also cover a range of other kinds of property exposures thru the extra Coverages portion of Section one. The standard householders policy makes provision for property coverage under Section one, Coverages A,B,C, and D.
Coverage A makes provision for coverage to the dwelling. Coverage B covers other structures. Coverage C will insure the private property of the insured, and Coverage D will supply loss of use coverage in the case the insured property becomes uninhabitable due to an insured hazard. Loss covered under Section one of the owners policy is subject to a per occurrence deductible. The standard deductible is $250, but the quantity of the deductible, which is explained on the declarations page, can be increased as requested by the insured and agreed to by the insurance company. The deductible applies once per occurrence, not per property coverage. As and example let us suspect that Joe has a householder’s policy with a $250 deductible.
A fire seriously damages Joe’s house and its contents. The damages to the house is covered under Coverage A, and the loss to the contents is covered under Coverage C. The deductible applies once to all covered loss due to the fire.
It doesn’t apply separately to the damage caused to the house and also to the contents. The definition of residence grounds is significant in deciding the extent of coverage available under Coverage A. According to the policy definitions, the gaff grounds is the place where the insured lives an identified in the policy declarations. A residence grounds may include any of the following : * An one-family dwelling, other structures, and grounds * One unit of a two-family dwelling and its other structures and grounds * part of any other building Coverage is provided for 2 other classes of property. In particular covered are materials and supplies found on or next to the crib grounds to be used in the construction, modification, or repairing of the dwelling or other structures. By implication, fixtures attached to the dwelling and considered part of the property are covered as a part of the dwelling. Examples of such fixtures include inbuilt appliances, plumbing and heating systems, and electric wiring.
The policy in particular excludes coverage for land. If land that the house sits is somehow spoiled by and insured hazard , for example a volcanic eruption, the insurer is under no duty to replace or revive the land.
