Universal Property & Casualty Insurance Products
Homeowners insurance plans include HO2, HO3, HO5 and HO8 policies. Universal offers plans to meet the needs of an owner-occupant of a private residence. Homeowners coverages include personal liability and property protection for the dwelling, other structures (garages, decks, etc.), personal property, loss of use, personal liability and medical payments. These coverages protect against covered causes of loss including lightning, fire, theft, windstorm and bodily injury or property damage to others.
Condo Insurance is provided to individual condo unit owners who need coverage for their personal property and liability. The Unit Owners Policy insures certain building items that are the unit owner’s responsibility rather than the condo association’s, like appliances and interior surfaces.
Universal also offers extra optional policies to broaden or extend coverages for items not included in the basic policy forms.
The Universal HO4 Renters policy is suitable for a tenant-occupant of an apartment, dwelling, or condominium when the property is used for residential purposes solely.
Coverage is provided for personal property, loss of use, medical payments to others, and personal liability. Additional options to stretch the policy for greater coverage are also offered through Universal.
Universal’s landlord coverage options include DP1, DP2, and DP3, the dwelling property coverage forms that are often referred to as “Dwelling Fire”. These forms help landlords insure rental or investment properties used specifically for residential purposes, rented on a yearly basis.
The Landlord Policy insures the Dwelling, Personal Property, Other Structures, Fair Rental Value, and Additional Living Expenses.
Dwelling property policy forms include coverage to protect against perils of fire and lighting. Additional perils are covered in DP2 and DP3 policy forms to provide coverage for additional exposures.
