You are required to obtain and maintain a fire (hazard) policy. If the home is non-owner occupied, this type of policy may also be referred to as a landlord’s or commercial policy. If your fire (hazard) policy specifically excludes windstorm damage, you are required to obtain a separate windstorm damage policy. If your property is in Puerto Rico, you are required to obtain and maintain earthquake insurance. Although earthquake insurance is not required outside of Puerto Rico, you may want to consider obtaining this coverage in some locations. If any structure is located in a Special Flood Hazard Area as identified by FEMA, you are also required to obtain and maintain flood insurance. If the home is a condominium or town home, please check with your homeowners association to verify what type of coverage the association’s policy provides.
