hoj. Home Insurance. January 03rd , 2018.
Over the last few years manufactured homes have developed into a beautiful places to live. These homes, when placed on a city lot, can often not be determined from a standard built home. They fit in beautifully with a landscape, have excellent designs, and in general are a welcome addition to a neighborhood. These homes need protection with Manufactured Home Insurance, the same as insurance for a standard house.
People sometimes become confused in identifying various homes. A site-built home is constructed on a building site, while a modular home is built in sections at a factory and transported to a site by truck. A manufactured home, on the other hand is constructed at the factory and is built on a steel chassis, with wheels. It is then pulled to a building site or mobile home park. Once the home is in place the wheels are removed, however it is possible to move it at a later time.
The insurance on these homes is very similar to what one would have on any other home. You can obtain personal property protection (for the loss or damage to personal property), family liability protection (against any judgments), guest medical protection, home and structure protection, plus living expenses for temporary housing if required because of damage to the home.
A manufactured home, as defined by Mobile Home Insurance companies is a single family house, constructed in a factory, and built to the required federal code. The insurance for this type of residence it is virtually the same as for a regular house. When purchasing insurance for manufactured homes part of the cost will depend on where you live, as well as the construction of the home and its condition.
The term for example 'replacement cost' means that your policy will cover the cost of replacing whatever has been damaged, depending on your policies limits. When insuring your manufactured home, you need to insure against damage to the home, property theft, and your liability for any injuries that occur there. There are insurance pricing factors that you cannot control. Such things as flooding or high crime rates, known to exist in the area, will result in higher premiums.
One of the things that will affect your insurance cost is what is its exposure to risk. The fact that these homes are lighter than those built on a site, they can be damaged by storms and severe weather. This is especially true in hurricane areas. Other possibilities are frozen pipes, because of poor insulation, as well as danger of fire. This is especially true in a mobile home park when where the units are located very close to each other.
There are also a number of options regarding actual or replacement costs if the home is 10 years old or less. In some cases, a full reimbursement of lost items is available. There are also a number of discounts available with different insurance companies, which can save you some money. If you are looking for Manufactured Home Insurance, it will pay you to shop around, as there are some excellent options available.
