U-Sell By Owner- Residential Brokerage

Person, business, or organization specified as the insured (s) in a property or liability insurance policy. In some instances, the policy provides broader coverage to persons other than those named in the policy if they have the insured's permission to use the property that is insured. For example, someone who drives a car with the permission of the owner is protected by a personal automobile policy (PAP). In other cases, if the owner of a property is not named as an insured party, his or her interests may not be protected by the policy. For example, if two persons own a home and only one is named on the homeowners insurance policy, the interest of the other may not be covered.
