Building Ordinance

Most insurance policies are written to allow a building owner to rebuild to the condition it was in prior to a loss; this type of coverage is referred to as replacement cost.

Building Ordinance

If an ordinance requires more—such as being brought up to code if it sustains more than 50 percent damage to the entire structure—an owner could face significant out-of-pocket expenses, which may range from slight modifications (installing hard-wired smoke detectors) to vastly more complicated and expensive modifications (installing fire sprinklers). To combat the cost of these projects, building owners can purchase ordinance and law insurance, which protects an owner or association against losses resulting from the enforcement of new laws, ordinances or changes to existing laws.
