Key 2 Your Move Real Estate

Provision in an insurance policy that indicates what is denied coverage. For example, common exclusions are: hazards deemed so catastrophic in nature that they are uninsurable, such as war; wear and tear, since they are expected through the use of a product; property covered by other insurance, in order to eliminate duplication that would profit the insured; liability arising out of contracts; and liability arising out of Workers Compensation laws. Exclusions are also listed in a boiler and machinery insurance policy, business automobile policy, business income coverage form, homeowners insurance policy, liability policy, and commercial package policy.
