Is Your Home Construction “UP TO CODE?!?”

MA Home Inspection

When you house, garage, barn or other premises is damaged in a covered insurance loss, you are paid to replace the same type of materials as were damaged.

If your town or city passes building construction and repair codes that require upgraded or different materials than those presently used in you current building construction, the additional cost of “bringing your home up to code” after a loss could be staggering.

Typical code requirements involve plumbing & heating equipment, wiring, and even roofing materials!

This additional cost of upgraded materials to repair to “code” is not covered under many homeowner policies.

GOOD NEWS! This important coverage can be purchased on your MA home insurance policy.

MA Home Insurance Inventory Checklist

The homeowner insurance policy is one of “utmost good faith”- meaning that each party involved in the insurance contract (client, agent & insurance company) is acting in good faith and that everyone trusts one another.

At claim time, anything you have in the form of receipts, detailed descriptions, appraisals, inventory listings, video etc., can be extremely helpful.
In the old days, we recommended our clients fill out a home inventory checklists — send us a copy, and keep another copy in a safe, fire-proof location. Checklists can still be helpful but now -even better- is video. If you video your home and belongings and store in the cloud, at claim time, you should have no problems.
