29.1578 Total loss by fire or miscellaneous insurance-Recovery of full amount.

Print This

A fire or miscellaneous insurance policy, in case of a total loss of any risk insured under the classes specified in this chapter as fire or miscellaneous insurance, must be held and considered to be a liquidated demand against the insurer taking the risk for the full amount stated in the

policy, or the full amount upon which the insurer charges, collects or receives a premium; provided the provisions of 29.1570 through 29.1578 may not apply to personal property. In the event of a total loss or destruction of any personal property on which the amount of the appraisal or agreed loss is less than the total amount insured thereon, the insurer shall return to the insured the unearned premium for the excess of insurance over the appraised or agreed loss, to be paid at the same time and in the same time and manner as the loss shall be paid, and the unearned premium shall be a just and legal claim against the insurer.
