Property Insurance – 3 Terms To Know
Did you know that your property insurance policy will typically provide the replacement cost value for your building and the actual cash value for your business property? Here are three terms you should be aware of:
- Replacement cost value is the amount that is necessary to replace or rebuild your building or repair damages with similar materials, without considering depreciation.
- Actual cost value is the value of your property when it is damaged or destroyed. This amount is typically determined by subtracting the depreciation from the replacement cost value.
- The coinsurance clause requires you, the policyholder, to share the cost of covered services up to a moderate percentage of the actual cash value of the property. This will allow you to receive full coverage for your losses.
