Less Known Homeowner Insurance Coverages

While most homeowners are aware of the most common homeowner insurance coverages like dwelling and liability, many policies offer additional protections you may not be familiar with but that offer essential protection. Here is a quick rundown of a few of the lesser known coverages:

  • Other Structures: This coverage will protect all other structures on your property that are not your house. This means that if you have a shed, barn, other outbuildings on your property, they are protected under this coverage. It also covers fencing or any other structures on your property that are detached from your home.
    It should be noted that other structures coverage is typically capped at 10 percent of your dwelling coverage. This means that if you are carrying $400,000 in dwelling coverage your other structures coverage is $40,000.
  • Loss of Use: This coverage protects your finances if you are forced out of your home due to a covered peril. As an example, if your home is damaged or destroyed by a fire and you are unable to live there while it is being repaired loss of use coverage will pay for some of the expenses you will incur due to being out of your home such as hotels, restaurants, and even dry cleaning.
  • Medical payments: This coverage will help cover medical bills if someone is injured on your property, regardless of who’s at fault. Coverage limits are usually capped at around $5,000 for this coverage.

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.
