Purpose and some important Fields of Acord 27 form
(Evidence of Property Insurance)
ACORD 27 form provides information about the coverage statement for mortgagees and loss payees who provide mortgages or loans on the residential property, personal property, or small commercial properties and are named in the policy.
This form reveals the requirements of mortgagees and its primary concern is the amount of insurance sufficient to cover the amount of the loan. Additionally, space is provided in the Coverage and Remarks sections of the form to include any additional information that may be required.
Many lenders pay the premium for certain types of policies such as Homeowners, the inclusion of the premium amount is inappropriate on the EPI (Equivalent Premium Income). This information will be communicated to the payor via an invoice.
This form is filled by the agency and approved by the state Department of Insurance. In many states, the text of the ACORD form cannot be modified, unless it is filed for approval by the respective state Department of Insurance.
