5:23 am
that area. reporter: since the glass fire tore through their neighborhood burning down 60 homes on their street, they have made investments to reduce their wildfire risk, something known as hardening your home, adding things like sprinklers on the roof and cleared out five feet of their structure. >> we trimmed all the trees off of the house, we put hardscape in the entry. reporter: the same story with their neighbor. >> my husband was cutting down trees for about six weeks straight, exhausting work. spent another $4500 hiring someone to do the trees we could not do. we had cal fire do an inspection. we had the local fire company doing inspection. reporter: walter says she contacted 25 different providers. >> none of them were providing policies in our area. >> we are continuing to push the envelope when it comes to forcing insurance companies to be accessible. reporter: in february the insurance commissioner proposed a regulation that aims to prevent this. >> it will mandate that 100% of
5:24 am
all insurance companies have to give california consumers discounts for hardening their home. it is the only way we will be able to bring down the risk so that californians can keep their insurance, keep it affordable. reporter: if approved, it will go into effect by the, bringing benefits aside from mandating discounts like requiring insurance company's provide consumers their companies -- their property's risk score. the reality is not as pretty as the press release. >> it is a big loophole. reporter: they are still not getting insured. >> that is a huge loophole that can swallow its promises. reporter: the executive director of consumer watchdog says while the regulation sounds good on paper, it does not tell the whole story. >> there are two parts of the insurance transaction. one, insurance companies decide if they will sell you coverage and second, they decide what
5:25 am
prices they will charge you. this regulation addresses price, which is important to all of us, but it does not address the sales question, whether or not you will get a policy at all. reporter: in other words, insurance companies are not required to consider mitigation steps when deciding whether to sell a consumer a policy. residents living in areas with high fire risk may be left unprotected. even the states former insurance commissioner was not renewed by his carrier despite spending tens of thousands of dollars on mitigation according to an op-ed published in the l.a. times. just like these families. >> i don't know of anybody who has been able to get insurance. reporter: both say they are only left with one real option. >> it looks like we will have to go through the california fair plan. reporter: for california fair plan is the insurer of last resort providing access to fire coverage for california homeowners unable to find insurance in the traditional marketplace. >> it is extreme a confusing. reporter: and it is not cheap. >> at least double what we paid
5:26 am
before with less coverage. >> are coverage is about 3.5 times more than what we had before and it is also with a $20,000 deductible. reporter: without the deductible the california fair plan would have been around seven times more expensive than her existing policy. >> the plan is to be affordable and available for every single california. reporter: problem is it is not affordable or comprehensive. what are you doing to change that? >> what we need to do is to provide a comprehensive policy option that currently does not exist in the fair plan so that people are not having to pay the extraordinary amount of administrative fees that only adds to the cost. reporter: to eliminating administrative fees is one step consumer advocates argue unless the regulation is amended, the loophole leaves the most vulnerable communities. >> we are working really hard. reporter: paying the price. >> it is unfortunate. liz: that will stephanie sierra
5:27 am
reporting for the i-team. consumer watchdog along with several other consumer organizations since several levels -- several letters calling on the commissioner to use his good authority to close this loophole but the department of insurance rejects these claims and will still require insurance companies to recognize and reward consumers mitigation efforts by offering discounts. still to come on abc7 morning, the redacted affidavit authorizing the search on trump's mar-a-lago home that is not public. details on the heavily redacted documents taken by fbi officials. business is at san francisco's ferry building in a big way. they look at what is driving the post-pandemic rebound.
