  • right to repair“Right to Repair” – Be Careful
    Homeowners may be unaware of a “Right to Repair” clause in their policy. This could allow the insurance company to repair the property using its own contractors rather than giving you money to pay a contractor that you trust. The insurance company may offer a slight discount or force you to accept a “Right to Repair” clause. Proceed cautiously. Many property owners have reported delays, disagreements, undervaluation and inferior repairs with this method. You may want to shop for coverage that excludes this. Many people are concerned that insurance companies may change policies to provide less coverage for homeowners, forcing them to use unfamiliar, unproven contractors to repair their homes. “Right to Repair” clauses can be dangerous. Homeowners should be able to select contractors that they know and trust. Review your policy to make sure you’re adequately protected.
