ACV (Actual Cash Value) or Replacement Cost? These are the two options that you will have to choose between. Surprisingly, most people end up with an ACV policy. This is bad news for the policy holder. ACV policies take into account depreciation of the home when it comes time to pay out for a claim. If your home is 15 years old, they depreciate the estimate to repair your home by 15 years and give you the balance less your deductible. I have personally seen countless policy holders receive as little as 30% of the cost of the estimate. The insurance company will then expect the policy holder to pay the difference. This is pretty common since ACV policies are rather inexpensive to buy and people are often misled into a false sense of protection.
This policy includes protection against a wide range of perils for your personal property, whether it is inside the property or in an adjacent structure. If anyone who does not stay in your home suffers bodily injury or damage due to your home, the policy will pay for the expenses. Insurance companies charge higher premiums on this type of insurance. The reason is that compared to a regular permanent home, mobile homes are more prone to extensive damages for the same hazards. There are two types of coverage provided by this policy - Physical damage coverage for damage to the home including all portions and liability coverage for damage to the home including all portions. Understanding the benefits of your policy is very important. To decide if your policy offers you the coverage you need, you must know what is covered and what is excluded.
Secondly, a good insurance policy will include liability insurance. Liability coverage protects you, the homeowner, if someone gets hurt on your property or in your home. It can pay for medical expenses and costs associated with the injury. A good policy will also help pay for legal defense in the event that you are sued. It should also cover damages made to the property when the accident occurred. However, it does not cover injuries to you or your immediate family living in the home. To determine the amount of liability coverage that you might need, think about how many people will be in and out of your home on a daily basis. If you have teenagers that are always inviting friends over, liability insurance is a must! It is important to try to make your home and property as safe as possible. Keep the porch and walkways in good repair. Always have adequate lighting and keep your home free of excessive clutter.
A mobile home insurance policy caters to the specific needs of owners of such. The coverage provided by this policy is similar to that of the regular homeowner's policy. However, it is specifically designed to meet the specific needs of the policy holder. Besides the mobile home, coverage also includes personal property and personal liability. Unless specifically excluded in the policy, your policy will cover your home and adjacent structures from all forms of loss. Coverage includes, without limitation, loss or damage by fire, windstorm damage, damage from falling objects, lightning, explosion, and more. Generally the policy will not cover a mobile home while it is in transit.
