HO-2

Similar to HO-1, HO-2 is a limited policy in that it will cover only specific portions of a home against damage. The coverage is ordinarily a “named perils” policy, which lists the cases that would be covered. As above, these factors must be spelled come in the policy.

HO-3

This policy is the most common one written for a owner and is designed to cover all aspects of the home, its structure and it contents. Also includes any liability that will arise from daily living. This includes visitors in the home that might encounter an accident or even injury on the premises. Covered aspects of liability must be clearly spelled out in the policy to insure proper coverage. The coverage is ordinarily called “all risk”.

HO-4

Similar to HO-6, this policy covers those aspects of the living accommodations and its contents not specifically covered in the blanket policy written for the renter’s complex.

Occasionally the HO-6 covers liability for residents and guests on their private property.
