  1. HO-2 vs HO-3
    • covers fewer causes of loss (limited to named perils)
    • only differs in Section I perils
    • burden of proof: with HO-2 burden is on insured to prove loss is covered; with HO-3 it's assumed covered unless insurer can prove otherwise
  2. HO-5 vs HO-3
    • HO-5 is essentially HO-3 modified to provide Coverage C (personal property) by any peril not excluded
    • broader: covers personal property damage due to flood or rain entering by open window, even if no damage to the building
    • special limits extended: ($1,500 jewelry and fur, $2,500 firearm, $2,500 silverware) also applies to items misplaced or lost

    • Coverage D = 30% of C (instead of 30% of A)
    • additional coverage for building additions and alteration, limit = 10% of C
    • excludes furnishings provided by landlord
    • ordinance or law is 10% of alteration instead of 10% of A
  4. HO-6 vs HO-3
    • tailored for condo owners
    • HO-6 definition of residence is the unit where insured lives
