Homeowners Insurance: Key Endorsements - CLEQ


Standard homeowners policies are designed to meet the coverage needs of many insureds. But rarely does a policy address all exposures without modification, and sometimes, insurers too have underwriting requirements that require modification. Endorsements are used to address these needs and may impact the policy's coverage in significant ways.

This course addresses some of the more important homeowners endorsements used in the 2011 and 2022 editions of Insurance Services Office, Inc. (ISO), homeowners forms. These endorsements make changes that are needed frequently enough-by either the insured or the insurer-that standard language has been developed for them.
