Farm Insurance Collin County Texas Coverage Scenario Part 2 – The Use of The Building Determines How It Is To Be Insured!

In a previous article we were introduced to Tom, a farmer who has just lost a detached garage to a fire and a substantial amount of farm equipment and tools along with it.

Tom filed a claim for the loss of the garage with his insurance company, assuming the structure is covered by his homeowner’s insurance.

The question we posed last time is: Will Tom’s homeowner’s insurance policy cover the damage?

Unfortunately for Tom and his family, the answer is probably not.


You may recall that the detached garage was initially covered as an extension of Tom’s homeowner’s insurance policy. This coverage applied so long as the garage was being used for personal reasons and not business-related ones, such as storing a recreational vehicle.

A farm is a business, however. The moment that Tom began to use the detached garage as a storage building for his farm equipment he effectively changed the purpose of the building from a personal use to a business use, potentially nullifying the building’s coverage under Jim’s homeowner’s policy.

Typically, homeowner’s insurance policies explicitly exclude coverage for business use and Tom’s policy is no exception.

A building used in connection with farming is not covered unless it is scheduled on the farm’s policy and a separate premium is paid. To retain coverage, Jim should have notified his insurance agency about the new use of his detached garage so that they could schedule it on his farm policy.

In other words, the use of a building will determine how it is to be insured, so make sure that you alert your insurance company of any changes in the use of a structure.
