3 COMPARISON OF SELECT STANDARD TEXAS DWELLING FIRE FORMS WITH ISO DP3 COVERED PROPERTY PERILS INSURED AGAINST EXTENSIONS OF COVERAGE VALUATION/LOSS SETTLEMENT
4 PERSONAL PROPERTY OFF PREMISES Which form(s) would provide the broadest coverage? All forms provide for an extension of 10% of the personal property limit to property off premises.
5 BUSINESS PERSONAL PROPERTY ON PREMISES Which form(s) specifically mentions business personal property under the personal property coverage? The TX forms are the only forms that refer to Business Personal Property.
6 MOTOR VEHICLES Coverage on Motor Vehicles are more limited on which form(s)? Power mowers, golf carts, recreational vehicles and farm equipment are specifically mentioned as covered on the TX forms. There could be situations when these vehicles could be covered under the DP3 if used to solely service the Described Location or assist the handicapped but that would not be very common.!
7 WATERCRAFT Which form(s) would provide the broadest coverage? The TX forms provide coverage for watercraft as long as located on land and on the insured premises. There is no coverage for watercraft on the DP3 except for rowboats and canoes but then no coverage for the peril of windstorm or hail.
8 FIRE, LIGHTNING, RIOT, CIVIL COMMOTION AND AIRCRAFT Which form(s) provides the broadest coverage????????? These perils are covered on all the forms however the vacancy clause does not apply to Fire and Lightning on the DP3 but does on the TX forms. The deductible does not apply to Fire and Lightning on the TX forms so it is really a tossup as to which form provides the broadest coverage.
9 VANDALISM AND MALICIOUS MISCHIEF Which policy form(s) provide the broadest coverage? The TDP2, TDP3 and DP3 provide vandalism and Malicious Mischief automatically but must be selected on the TDP1 and a separate premium paid. The 60 day vacancy applies to all the forms however loss to building glass is not covered on the TDP1 or TDP2.
10 THEFT Which policy form(s) provides the broadest coverage? Theft coverage is only provided for building parts on the TDP3 and DP3 however the vacancy clause applies to theft on the DP3. No theft coverage is provided on the contents for any of these forms.
11 WINDSTORM, HURRICANE, HAIL Which policy form(s) provide the broadest coverage? The TX forms all provide the same coverage except that the TDP3 includes wind driven rain on the dwelling as does the DP3. The DP3 form does not exclude the same items that the TX forms exclude such as structures over water, cloth awnings and greenhouses.
12 DAMAGE BY VEHICLES Which policy form(s) provide the broadest coverage for building and contents? All TX forms and the DP3 cover damage by vehicles to building and contents except the TDP1 does not cover damage caused by insured or occupant of the residence.
13 DAMAGE BY VEHICLES Which policy form(s) provide the broadest coverage for fences, driveways, walks, walls and outdoor equipment? Damage to fences, driveways, walks, walls and outdoor equipment are covered by all these forms except that the TDP1 and TDP2 do not cover damage caused by vehicles owned by the insured or occupant.
14 DAMAGE BY VEHICLES Which policy form(s) provide the broadest coverage for lawns, trees and shrubs? Lawns, trees and shrubs are not covered on the TDP1 or TDP2 and not covered on the TDP3 or DP3 if damage is caused by vehicles owned by the insured or resident.
15 WATER DAMAGE Is surface water and flood covered perils? Yes No Surface water and flood is excluded from all forms.
16 WATER DAMAGE Which policy form(s) would provide coverage for surface water that damages the dwelling from a broken water main in the neighborhood? Texas courts have consistently ruled that surface water refers to natural precipitation (rain or melted snow) that falls and passes over the surface of the ground until it evaporates, is absorbed by the land, or reaches channels where it naturally flows into creeks, rivers and streams. So water from a broken water main by court ruling is not surface water and the dwelling would be covered on the TDP3 since it provides all risk coverage. Coverage would also be covered on the DP3 due to specific coverage provided for water damage from pipes off the premises.
17 WATER DAMAGE Which policy form(s) would provide coverage for contents in the previous situation? NONE None of these forms would provide coverage. On TDP3, water damage is limited to discharge from a plumbing, heating or air conditioning system and no coverage either on DP3 since damage was caused by discharge off the premises.
18 WATER DAMAGE Which policy form(s) would provide coverage for damage from rain through faulty roof, windows or doors? Coverage would be provided only for the dwelling due to the all risk perils.there are some troublesome exclusions on the DP3 form that would exclude faulty, defective or inadequate design or workmanship of part or all of any property on or off the premises.
19 WATER DAMAGE Which policy would provide coverage for freezing of plumbing or heating system and domestic appliances? All forms except the TDP1 would provide coverage. The TDP2 and TDP3 would exclude coverage if vacant or unoccupied and precautions not taken while the DP3 would exclude coverage also if precautions not taken without regard to being vacant or unoccupied.
20 WATER DAMAGE Which policy form(s) would cover seepage/leakage over time? Texas forms that provide water cover gradual and slow leaks and seepage but the DP3 does not.
21 WATER DAMAGE Which policy form(s) would provide coverage for backup of sewers/drains? These two TX forms provide the only coverage for backup of sewers/drains.
22 DAMAGE BY ANIMALS Which policy form(s) would provide coverage for damage caused by insured s animals? NONE The TDP3 is the only form that provides any coverage for damage caused by animals to the dwelling but they can not be owned or kept by the insured or occupant.

Some carriers use the dwelling fire policy to provide coverage on vacant dwellings with or without remodeler/renovation coverage, with or without liability and will insure the corporation or business as the named insured.
