On July 1, Florida’s second major property insurance reform law went into effect, complimenting 2019’s HB 7065, the original AOB reform law. This means more hurdles to clear with insurers as they continue their clamp-down on AOB claims for mitigation companies, GCs, roofers, electricians, and plumbers.
While the AOB requirements will remain the same, the SB76 Property Package legislation adds additional obstacles for AOBs including:
1. Preventing contractors from soliciting homeowners directly.
2. Reducing the time to file claims from three to two years, with an additional year to file supplemental claims.
3. Adding new requirements and post-loss conditions for insureds that can impact the AOB claim.
