Our Home Buyers Checklist

What should you look for in a good homeowner’s policy?

Get an “All-Risk” policy—NOT a “Named Perils” policy.

An all-risk policy covers everything except what is specifically excluded in the policy. Under an all-risk policy, the burden is on the insurance company to prove that the peril causing the damage is not excluded; otherwise, coverage applies.

A Named Perils policy covers only what is specifically noted in the policy. When coverage is written on a named peril basis, the burden is on the insured to prove that one of the named perils caused the loss.

Get all applicable water endorsements, including:

Coverage for slab leak

Water back-up

Seepage, sudden/accidental leaks

Flood—in some cases you may want flood coverage even if you are not in a flood zone

Make sure you have Replacement Cost coverage—NOT ACV coverage

“Actual Cash Value”—a depreciated settlement for coverage that usually gives you around 30 cents on the dollar

Comprehensive Loss Underwriting Exchange (CLUE) Report

Insurance companies use CLUE reports to learn about your claims history before they will finalize an offer to write your insurance. As an informed consumer, you should take advantage of this tool to understand whether a house or car you are planning to buy has had any claims in the last five years.  
 
We are happy to run a CLUE report for your home and auto.
