Sec. § 40.649
Notice of defect may be presented to insurer; duties of insurer.


1.

If a contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional receives written notice of a constructional defect, the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional may present the claim to an insurer which has issued a policy of insurance that covers all or any portion of the business of the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional.

2.

If the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional presents the claim to the insurer pursuant to this section, the insurer:

(a)

Must treat the claim as if a civil action has been brought against the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional; and

(b)

Must provide coverage to the extent available under the policy of insurance as if a civil action has been brought against the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional.

3.

A contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional is not required to present a claim to the insurer pursuant to this section, and the failure to present such a claim to the insurer does not relieve the insurer of any duty under the policy of insurance to the contractor, subcontractor, supplier or design professional.
