Texas Governor Signs New Law Affecting Property Insurance Claims – Takes Effect September 1st, 2019

The following is for general informational purposes only.  In no way is it intended to be construed as legal advice.  We recommend you consult a lawyer if you want legal advice.

Some will view it that the Texas property insurance lobby machine had a huge win following the recent 86th legislative session in Texas.  Texas Governor Greg Abbott signed HB 2102 into law on June 14th, 2019 and the law takes effect September 1st, 2019.

What this means to homeowners affected by a loss that is covered by your insurance policy:

– A contractor cannot represent that you paid your deductible when you in fact did not, or assist the property owner in any way to avoid paying the required insurance deductible

New Texas Insurance Deductible Law – Roof Damage Claims

Effective September 1st, 2019 a new Texas law took effect that means big changes for homeowners insurance claims and the storm restoration industry.  There has been a law in Texas for several decades that made it illegal not to pay your deductible in conjunction with a repair after receiving proceeds from an insurance claim.

The old Texas law, that governed insurance deductible payments, was relatively vague and the Texas courts ended up questioning its validity back in the late 1980’s.  In Texas this most often involved shingle roof related insurance claims that were storm damaged by hail or high winds.  That lead to many contractors offering to absorb, or waive, the deductible so the homeowner would have no out pocket expense in completing repairs in conjunction

Contractor General Liability Insurance – 4 Shocking Details

I recently had an interesting conversation with our business insurance agent.  Some of the things he told me were an eye opener from my own standpoint as a homeowner, not just as a roofing contractor.

It started with doing a regular review of the coverage that Harvey Roofing & Construction has within our own contractor insurance policy.  We highly value the protection it provides our clients and our business, so we are very in depth with maintaining and understanding the policy.  It is also a large expense so each year we review the policy renewal in depth.

That lead to discussing the “competition” and what our agent often sees among other construction contractors, specifically roofing contractors…

These are the 4 key points that shocked me:

1. – He sees roofing contractors put a general liability policy into

The Pitfalls of Property Insurance

When most folks buy property insurance the first thing that gets considered or compared is the premium cost. Unfortunately, the most important consideration needs to be the particular coverage you are getting and the companies reputation for handling claims. Far less consideration is usually given to those details.

It can be difficult to determine which insurance companies best take care of their customers in the event of a claim. But you can fully review the policy that you are being offered before you buy it to decide if the coverage is right for you. If you experience a loss that compels you to file an insurance claim with your policy, you will at least know you are properly covered.

Whether the insurance company will happily meet their obligations on determining
