Subject: Arkansas Valued Policy Law

Mr. Flynt:

I have attached a link to a copy of our valued policy law. If the loss was due to fire or natural disaster other than flood or earthquake the valued policy law would apply. Please feel free to contact me if you have additional questions.

Mr. Flynt, we have received your email on Arkansas Valued Policy provisions. Both people who could best answer your question are out of the office until Monday or Tuesday.

If your question is urgent, I will be glad to try to find you an answer--but if it isn't urgent, you really would be better served to wait until they come back. Please feel free to contact me directly.

In Mississippi the valued policy law only applies to Fire in a mobile home. That was a Supreme Court ruling in I believe 1988 in the case of Jimmy Lowery vs Foremost Insurance Co. Arkansas also limits Valued Policy to certain perils. Tom Toll would be a good source for that information. He is in the roster.
