Is It Covered? Garages, Fences, & Other Structures

Many assume that coverage for garages, fences and other outdoor property is automatically included in their insurance policy as these items are located on the same land as the main house. Coverage for “Other Structures” is usually always included in standard Homeowner’s policies. However, coverage for investment properties operates differently, and some “detached structures”, or “outdoor fixtures” may not be included unless your client specifically requests coverage for those items.
