If you are financing any portion of your new manufactured, modular or mobile home, your lender will require you to have and maintain Homeowners Insurance as part of the loan agreement.
If you didn’t know, Home Owners Insurance is pretty straightforward: It provides financial protection against disasters. A standard policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it.
Homeowners insurance is typically a package policy. That is, the policy covers both damage to your property and your liability or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. This often includes damage caused by household pets.
Damage caused by most disasters is covered, but there are exceptions. Examples of exceptions are those damages caused by floods, earthquakes, and poor maintenance. In most cases, you will need to obtain flood and/or earthquake insurance as separate, standalone policies, if you seek that sort of protection.
Please note: Common household and property maintenance-related problems are always the homeowners’ responsibility and are not covered by your Homeowners Insurance policy.
Homeowners Insurance is fairly easy to obtain. It is similar to getting insurance for your motor vehicle. If you have an established relationship with an independent insurance agent, we suggest speaking with them first. They will almost certainly be able to rapidly and affordably assist you. If you do not have an agent, we have a number of readily available insurance companies that specialize in modular, manufactured, and mobile home policies. Our staff can help you find and secure the best policy and rates available for your unique situation.
