Understanding Vacant Properties
The law defines the term vacant as “completely empty”, meaning a lack of both people and personal property. Also, vacancy can also be defined as “empty of personal property necessary to sustain normal occupancy.” Hence, a single family home with an only a television and dishwasher may be considered vacant. On the other hand, unoccupied means that the property has been abandoned but still contains all personal possessions and normal living items. This status would hold true if the home appeared to be in a state as if the owners were to return at any time.
Therefore, it is common to see a vacancy section in homeowners insurance policies. This vacancy section’s exclusions will remove coverage for vandalism, water damage, theft or attempted theft if the damage occurs within 1 to 2 months of the home being vacant. The exact time frame would depend on the homeowners policy. Coverage for fire and wind remain intact.
