Course Description

This class gives you an overview of property insurance issues and challenges, so that you are better able to recommend the right types of coverage for your client’s unique situation. Specifically, the concept of “insurable interest” is explained and supported with examples (homeowner, business owner, rental property, etc.) with the intent of helping you avoid the pitfalls of recommending or purchasing coverage that is different from the intent of the parties. Paul delves into the complex and often misunderstood realm of actual cash value, replacement cost, and co-insurance.

Every property insurance policy brings into play a myriad of questions and issues, including but not limited to: Who may insure the property? What is the nature of the property which may be insured? To what extent may one insure their property interests? Since insurance policies don’t fully address all of the issues, this class provides a framework to identify and eliminate potential gaps in coverage.
