In the event of a loss
In the event of property theft, vandalism or an accident, we recommended that you file a police report.
If a tree falls on your home due to wind, we will pay to have the tree removed from the dwelling, to the ground, so your home can be repaired. Your policy does not provide coverage to replace trees damaged by wind in a storm.
"Replacement cost" is the amount needed to repair the damage, rebuild the home to its pre-loss condition and replace any lost, stolen or damaged items with new items. For insurance purposes, the replacement cost of a home is NOT the market value of the home, its purchase price or the outstanding amount of any mortgage loan. Actual Cash Value only covers the depreciated value of an item at the time it was lost, stolen, or damaged. The depreciated value is determined by the wear and tear on the item and the item’s age.
The deductible is the amount you pay out of pocket to cover your loss before the insurance company will pay any loss expenses. The deductible will be applied each time you have a claim on your policy.
