Texas home insurance policies are divided into sections. The first section outlines four core property coverage items (see http://22.214.171.124/~wiseinsu/home-insurance-core-property-coverage/). Last week, we looked at the second section which outlines liability coverage, or coverage that protects you if something happens to someone in your home or on your property (see http://126.96.36.199/~wiseinsu/home-insurance-liability-coverage/). This week, we’ll continue this by looking at policy deductibles.
A client sent me an email last week stating he has a roof leak in his north Texas home which was probably caused by hail.
Several times a year, I receive a call from an individual or family member who’s very anxious. They’ve found their dream home in north Texas, put their earnest money down, and ordered the inspection. The inspection outlines an issue and they find out days or a week before closing from their insurance agent that this issue prevents them from getting home insurance.
On August 12th, Justin and Kasia Purcell of Surprise, Arizona were away from their home and staying with relatives while awaiting the birth of a child. They received a call that night from a neighbor letting them know their home was on fire. They drove the 45 minutes home after that call and arrived to find firefighters putting out the flames to what had been their home. It was a total loss and no one knows what caused the blaze.
