Don’t get caught without coverage.
In the process of moving to a new city for a new job, most homeowners may be too busy to think about the insurance implications for the old home they just left.
Most homeowner policies have a maximum number of days that a home can be vacant before some or all coverages are voided. A max of 30 days vacant is common but each state and policy can have different maximum days vacant before coverage is reduced or nonexistent.
To avoid an unwelcome surprise, such as a claim denial or coverage limitation, call your agent to modify your current policy or write you a new vacant policy if needed.
