Roof and 4-Point Inspection Form Updates
February 09, 2018
Citizens updated the following forms to evaluate risks better and determine whether a property meets Citizens’ eligibility guidelines:
- 4-Point Inspection Form (Insp4pt 01 18)
- Roof Inspection Form (RCF-1 01 18), formerly Roof Condition Certification Form
- The Agents website: Select Personal → PR-M → General
- The Public website: Select Insurance → Get a Policy → Inspections
Agents and licensed inspectors should begin using the updated forms immediately. After September 1, 2018, if the agent submits a previous version of the form(s), Underwriting may request additional information or create other underwriting actions.
4-Point Inspection Form
The changes on the 4-Point Inspection Form are outlined below.
|Section of 4-Point Inspection Form||Description of Changes|
|Minimum Photo Requirements||Photos now are required for:
|Legal Disclaimer||Clarifies that the inspection is for underwriting use and does not guarantee systems condition|
|HVAC System||Expanded to include servicing/inspection date and a question regarding blockage or leaking|
|Plumbing System||Photos now are required for:
|Roof||The Any visible signs of damage/deterioration? section has been expanded.|
Roof Inspection Form
The Roof Condition Certification Form (RCF-1 09 13) has been updated to mirror the roof condition requirements listed on the updated 4-Point Inspection Form.
