What are the policy limits (i.e., coverage limits) in the standard homeowners policy?

[Note: this answer is based on the Insurance Services Office’s HO-3 policy.] The dwelling and other structures on the premises are protected on an “all risks” basis up to the policy limits. “All risks” means that unless the policy specifically excludes the manner in which your home is damaged or destroyed, there is coverage. The policy limit for the dwelling is set by the policyowner at the time the insurance is purchased. The policy limit for the other structure is usually equal to 10% of the policy limit for the dwelling. Losses to your personal property are covered on a “named perils” basis. “Named perils” means that you have coverage only when your property is damaged or destroyed in the manner specifically described in the policy. The policy limit on the coverage is equal to 50% of the policy limit on the dwelling.

(Note: Information is based on the ISO HO-3 Homeowners Policy) Coverages A and B provide protection to the dwelling and other structures on the premises on an “all risk” basis up to the policy limits. The policy limit for Coverage A is set by the policyowner at the time the insurance is purchased. The policy limit for Coverage B is usually equal to 10% of the Coverage A limit. Coverage C covers losses to your personal property on a named perils basis. The policy limit on coverage C is equal to 50% of the Coverage A limit. Coverage D covers the additional expenses that the policyowner may incur when the residence cannot be used because of an insured loss. The policy limit for Coverage D is equal to 20% of the policy limit on Coverage A. The coverage limit on Coverage E-Personal Liability – is determined by the policyholder at the time the policy is issued. The coverage limit on Coverage F – Medical Payments to Others – is usually set at $1000 per injured person, though can be changed.
