When debt service is low, and equity is high the preservation of capital becomes a priority. When the incremental cost of purchasing earthquake insurance is financially bearable, property owners tend to place an earthquake policy to reduce the risk of a major financial loss.

When financing is predicated on purchasing earthquake coverage, the property owner is required to place this coverage. We see these requirements typically with larger investment funds as a fiduciary responsibility, some traditional or local lenders, seller carries, and hard money loans.

Self-Elective to Purchase
