Your homeowners policy will typically have limits for dwelling coverage, personal property, other structures, and liability. Here is what each of those are referring to.
If the terms “actual cash value” and “replacement cost” have you puzzled, here’s a quick synopsis. Actual cash value, sometimes shortened to ACV, commonly reimburses you for the current value of the item. This means the original cost, minus depreciation. Replacement cost value (RCV), on the other hand, typically will reimburse you for the current cost to replace the item. For example, if there was a fire in your kitchen and you needed to replace your cabinets and appliances, replacement cost could give you the amount to go out and purchase these items new. Actual cash value, on the other hand, would reimburse you for the cost of the cabinets and appliances, minus depreciation, meaning you may not have enough to replace everything that was lost.
