1. Additional Living Expense If a loss covered under Section I makes that part of the "residence premises" where you reside not fit to live in, we cover any necessary increase in living expenses incurred by you so that your household can maintain its normal standard of living. Payment will be for the shortest time required to repair or replace the damage or, if you permanently relocate, the shortest time required for your household to settle elsewhere. 59
2. Fair Rental Value If a loss covered under Section I makes that part of the "residence premises" rented to others or held for rental by you not fit to live in, we cover the fair rental value of such premises less any expenses that do not continue while it is not fit to live in. Payment will be for the shortest time required to repair or replace such premises. 60
3. Civil Authority Prohibits Use If a civil authority prohibits you from use of the "residence premises" as a result of direct damage to neighboring premises by a Peril Insured Against, we cover the loss as provided in 1.Additional Living Expense and 2. Fair Rental Value above for no more than two weeks. 61
4. Loss Or Expense Not Covered We do not cover loss or expense due to cancellation of a lease or agreement. The periods of time under 1. Additional Living Expense, 2. Fair Rental Value and 3. Civil Authority Prohibits Use above are not limited by expiration of this policy. 62
63 There are 12 additional coverages.
1. Debris Removal a. We will pay your reasonable expense for the removal of: (1) Debris of covered property if a Peril Insured Against that applies to the damaged property causes the loss; or (2) Ash, dust or particles from a volcanic eruption that has caused direct loss to a building or property contained in a building. This expense is included in the limit of liability that applies to the damaged property. If the amount to be paid for the actual damage to the property plus the debris removal expense is more than the limit of liability for the damaged property, an additional 5% of that limit is available for such expense. 64
Here are the key points to remember about this section: 1. Removal coverage applies only to the debris of covered property. 2. If there is no damage to covered property or the cause of loss is not a peril insured against, debris removal does not apply. 3. Coverage is not restricted to debris that is located on the residence premises. 65
If a tree is blown down by wind or hail it is not covered and a tree owned by the neighbor is not covered property of the insured but this section makes some exceptions up to 1,
67 The tree has to either damage a covered structure or must block a driveway or ramp designed to assist the handicapped.
2. Reasonable Repairs a. We will pay the reasonable cost incurred by you for the necessary measures taken solely to protect covered property that is damaged by a Peril Insured Against from further damage. b. If the measures taken involve repair to other damaged property, we will only pay if that property is covered under this policy and the damage is caused by a Peril Insured Against. This coverage does not: (1) Increase the limit of liability that applies to the covered property; or (2) Relieve you of your duties, in case of a loss to covered property, described in B.4. under Section I – Conditions. 68
This is a post loss benefit. 69
70 This is the part of the policy where agents heard the following: I need 4 new pine trees. They were all blown down during Hurricane (Insert any one).
The aggregate limit is 5% of the Coverage A limit provided as an additional amount of insurance with sublimit of $500 for loss to any one tree, shrub or plant. 71
4. Fire Department Service Charge We will pay up to $500 for your liability assumed by contract or agreement for fire department charges incurred when the fire department is called to save or protect covered property from a Peril Insured Against. We do not cover fire department service charges if the property is located within the limits of the city, municipality or protection district furnishing the fire department response. This coverage is additional insurance. No deductible applies to this coverage. 72
5. Property Removed We insure covered property against direct loss from any cause while being removed from a premises endangered by a Peril Insured Against and for no more than 30 days while removed. This coverage does not change the limit of liability that applies to the property being removed. 73
Up to 30 days. 74
75 It is not required that the card have been stolen; any basis on which it is subjected to unauthorized use is covered.
Covered Perils: Example #1: Sue has an HO-3 policy and is assessed for fire damage to the HOA clubhouse. Since fire is a covered peril under her HO-3 her policy responds less deductible. Example #2: Sue is assessed for flood damage to the same clubhouse. Since flood is not a covered peril under her HO-3 there is no coverage. 77
Assessments Example, if a clubhouse were damaged by fire and the HOA made an initial assessment of $3,500 the homeowners policy pays the $1,000 limit (assuming it has not been increased). If, three months later, another assessment is made for the same fire loss there is not an additional $1,000 available for another assessment. 78
79 "an abrupt falling down or caving in, with the result that the building or part of the building cannot be occupied for its intended use."
Additional wording to ISO policy : of a building or any part of a building 80
81 damage to, or by, glass is actually a result, rather than a cause.
10. Landlord's Furnishings We will pay up to $2,500 for your appliances, carpeting and other household furnishings, in each apartment on the "residence premises" regularly rented or held for rental to others by an "insured", for loss caused by a Peril Insured Against in Coverage C, other than Theft. This limit is the most we will pay in any one loss regardless of the number of appliances, carpeting or other household furnishings involved in the loss. This coverage does not increase the limit of liability applying to the damaged property. 82
The insured must reside in one unit; however, the others may be rented. 83
84 Gurns O&L problems: $200,000 house sustained $50,000 of damage in the fire. $50,000 would put the house back just as it was, but contractor says it will take an additional $25,000 to bring the house up to code.
12. Grave Markers We will pay up to $5,000 for grave markers, including mausoleums, on or away from the "residence premises" for loss caused by a Peril Insured Against under Coverage C. This coverage does not increase the limits of liability that apply to the damaged covered property. 85

The state of Florida has taken a very strong position on the issue of unauthorized entities. An unauthorized entity is an insurance company that is not licensed by the Florida department of financial services. Agents and brokers have responsibility for conducting reasonable research to ensure that they are not writing policies or placing business with unauthorized entities. Lack of careful screening can result in significant financial loss to Florida residents due to unpaid claims and/or theft of premiums. 93
Agents may be held liable when representing these unauthorized entities. It is the agents and brokers responsibility to give fair and accurate information regarding the companies they represent. Any question about the authorized status of a company can be checked by calling the Florida department of financial services at or for out of state agents, We urge all agents and brokers to adhere to this admonition. 94
