- Homes must fall down to be eligible for coverage
By DAVE COLLINS, Associated Press - Sunday Jul 2, 2017
More than two dozen insurance companies being sued in federal court by 40 homeowners recently filed court documents asking a judge to dismiss the class-action lawsuit for a variety of reasons, including that the plaintiffs are only covered if their houses fall down.The motions to dismiss the lawsuit filed June 2 are adding to the dismay of the homeowners, who face living in potentially unsafe homes with plummeting values that can't be sold and would cost hundreds of thousands of dollars to fix.Many other homeowners besides those in the class-action lawsuit also have been told their policies only cover collapse and not cracking or crumbling, said Ryan Barry, a lawyer for the plaintiffs in the class-action lawsuit.Insurance companies later amended their homeowners' policies across the country in response to that ruling and other court decisions, changing the definition of collapse to mean an "abrupt" or "sudden" falling down, Barry said.While insurers have sympathy for the homeowners, they have to follow the letter of insurance policies, said Eric George, president of the Insurance Association of Connecticut, a trade organization that represents insurance companies that do business in the state.

- Insurers must pay even if home damage exceeds property value
By Bob Egelko - Wednesday Aug 9, 2017
Insured homeowners in California whose homes have been badly damaged, but not destroyed, are entitled to coverage for the cost of repairing them, even if that cost far exceeds the property’s market value, under a ruling that has now become final. The state Supreme Court unanimously denied review Wednesday of an insurance association’s appeal from a lower-court decision favoring a Richmond homeowner, and also denied the insurer’s request to bar use of the lower-court ruling as a precedent for future cases. The insurer, the California Fair Plan Association, paid homeowner Marlene Garnes only the home’s market value of $75,000. In a precedent-setting ruling in May, the First District Court of Appeal in San Francisco said a 2004 state law allows homeowners to recover repair costs even when their insurance policies are drafted more restrictively. The California Fair Plan Association is a group of insurance companies commissioned by the Legislature in 1968 to cover homes in high-risk areas. Schaffer said no other insurer in the state has refused to pay full repair costs in such cases, a practice that is also being challenged in class-action lawsuits in Los Angeles.
