What are the insurance coverage types for homes in Lakeside?

The thing about Lakeside homeowners insurance that many people don't know is that it comes in a variety of different types, each one designed for the type of housing unit it protects.

Here is the information you need to know about the different homeowner insurance types in Lakeside, CA:

HO-3: The majority of homeowners policies that are in force in Lakeside, and most other places, are HO-3 type policies. The policies cover damage from any peril that is not specifically excluded in the policy details. HO-3 policies only protect your personal property from specific perils that are listed in the policy. As with most homeowner policies, flooding and earthquake damage are excluded.

Be sure to read your policy in full and understand any other exclusions that apply to your coverage.

HO-6: These policies are written especially for condos and co-op buildings. They provide protection for all of your personal property as well as the parts of the building that are your property, such as the walls and mechanicals of your particular unit.

HO-8: If you love older homes, this type of policy is for you. It protects older, historical homes where the cost to rebuild or replace the home exceeds the value of the house.

The fact that these policies will have a payout that is lower than the cost to replace the house makes them affordable. These policies are usually written because the home is too old to qualify for a traditional HO-3 policy. The main disadvantage is the fact that these policies only cover damage from 11 specific perils.

HO-4: If you are renting an apartment, you still need protection for your personal property and liability protection in the event that someone is injured in your apartment.

A HO-4 policy offers the protection that you need when living in an apartment. If your personal property is damaged or destroyed, you will be covered and it will also cover the medical bills and any legal bills if someone is injured while visiting you.

What is the difference between actual cash value and replacement cost value?

Homeowners insurance is available in both actual cash value (ACV) and replacement cost value (RCV). Knowing the difference is important:

Actual cash value: When valuing your personal possessions, an actual cash value policy will take depreciation into account. This means that your 10-year-old TV will be basically worthless according to your insurance company. While an ACV policy tends to be cheaper, if you have to make a claim you may be disappointed in your claim payout.

Replacement cost value: A RCV policy will replace your possessions with brand new items of similar quality regardless of how old they were at the time they were destroyed. While RCV policies are slightly more expensive, they are well worth the cost if you have to make a claim.
