 Water and Mineral Rights Damage
The Homeowner’s Policy provides coverage if a homeowner’s existing improvements, including lawns, shrubbery and trees, are damaged because someone exercised a right to use the surface of the land for extraction of minerals or water.
Supplemental Tax Lien
The Homeowner’s Policy protects homeowners
if a supplemental tax lien is filed and assessed against the property because of new construction or a change of ownership happens prior to the policy date.
Map Inconsistencies
The Homeowner’s Policy provides coverage if the map attached to the homeowner’s policy does not show the correct location of the land, according to public records.
Continuous Coverage
The Homeowner’s Policy covers homeowners forever, even if they no longer have the title.
The policy insures anyone who inherits the title because of the homeowner’s death and the spouse who receives the title after dissolution of marriage. The Homeowner’s Policy also allows homeowners to transfer their home into a trust after the policy date and receive uninterrupted coverage, at no extra cost.
Value-Added Protection
Traditional title policies don’t increase their coverage as the value of a home increases. Not so with the Homeowner’s Policy. The policy amount automatically increases by ten percent per year for five years, up to 150% over the original policy amount. This automatic increase in coverage is included at no extra cost.
