Collapse: Homeowners Policy

Definition

Collapse: Homeowners Policy — additional coverage provided by the homeowners policy. Collapse is not treated as a peril per se, but as an additional coverage with separate treatment, language, and restrictions. For coverage to apply, the proximate cause of the collapse has to be a covered peril. For example, if the faulty design of the home (an excluded peril under the homeowners form) results in the collapse, no coverage is provided.
