Insuranceopedia Explains Form No. 5 Comprehensive Homeowners Insurance (HO-5)
HO-5 insurance is considered the all-perils policy for
homeowners. If the property is damaged, the policy owner does not have to link the cause of the damage to one of the items listed in the policy, as would be the case with named perils insurance.
Insurance companies tend to be cautious when issuing HO-5 policies and usually sell them to houses that are quite new, well maintained, or located near the fire department.
