This class will look at characteristics that lead to hoarding and examine reasons why insurance companies may not want to insure the increased risks hoarding can bring. It will take a look at some famous hoarders in history, and the obsessive need to keep items. 

We will discuss some of the different types of items that are hoarder and the general issues they can cause. We will review actual insurance claims involving hoarders and discuss other possibilities that could lead to claims, whether damage to the property or from the property.

We will discuss how carriers can try to address the problem and discuss differences that make these unique claims handling situations.
