A standard Florida Family Homeowners or Condominium policy protects the insured dwelling and contents from a variety of perils such as:
- Windstorm and Hail
- Explosions and Smoke
- and many other causes of loss
NOTE: Some policies in coastal counties exclude the perils of wind and hail. A separate policy is available from the residual market in Florida to cover these perils in this case.
The basic policy also provides coverage for:
Other Structures - insures other buildings or structures, like a garage or guest house, located on the premises. This coverage also covers fences, walls satellite dishes or other structures detached from the main home.
Additional Living Expenses or Rental Value - pays any necessary increase in living expenses for you to live somewhere else while your home is being repaired as the result of a covered loss, if required. If the dwelling is insured as rental property, then you would be reimbursed for any lost rental income. This provision is subject to co-insurance on some policy forms.
Personal and Legal Liability - provides coverage for claims filed as a result of accidental injuries to others and unintended property damage for which you become legally responsible.
Medical Payments - covers actual medical expenses for accidental injury to others caused by you regardless if you are legally liable.
A wide variety of optional coverages can be added to the standard policy. Three of the most popular are:
Replacement Cost on Contents - replaces damaged or stolen household contents at today's retail prices regardless of their original cost to you.
Special Personal Property Coverage - provides protection for household accidents such as paint spills to floors, walls or carpets.
Scheduled Personal Property - provides stated amount coverage on an “all peril” basis for valuables.
