Honolulu Real Estate Experts Explain 5 Different Types of Property Coverage, Honolulu, Hawaii

In Hawaii, people come for the beaches but stay for the aloha spirit. However, though the Big Island is quite a paradise, homeowners are not immune to the perils of accidents and natural disasters. The local real estate professionals at Lani Properties Corp., in Honolulu stress the importance of having the right comprehensive coverage to protect yourself, your loved ones, and your investments. To give you a sense of what’s available, here they discuss a few common options.

A Guide to Property Coverage

1. Special

As the most common type of homeowners insurance, the special form policy tends to be affordable and offers a broad range of coverage. Rather than outline the specific risks and problems they protect, these plans review what they don’t cover, instead. Anything not included in this list will be taken care of.

2. Basic

real estateAs perhaps the most bare-bones policy, this coverage only protects you in the event of specific perils. These typically include fire, explosions, lightning, hail, theft, vandalism, damage from vehicles or aircrafts, riots, and volcanic eruption. Should anything else happen to your home, however, you would be financially responsible.

3. Broad

A form that includes everything from the basic type of insurance and more, the broad policies cover your home’s structure, as well as your belongings and personal liability. It will also protect you in the event of some additional perils, including falling objects and the sudden tearing apart of household systems.

4. Comprehensive

A comprehensive policy is much more inclusive than those previously listed. However, the contract may have quite a few exclusions, such as water damage, issues caused by pets, war and government action, or corrosion.

5. Older Home

Finally, an older home policy is designed for buildings erected many years ago. Historic homes and landmarks often carry these plans, which are very similar to special forms but tailored to the structure’s age.
