Is this NOT a Writer/Editor’s Nightmare (Quick post)

This is a sentence from the insurance book:

 

“‘Basic property insurance’ means insurance against direct loss to real or tangible personal property at a fixed location from perils insured under the standard fire policy and extended coverage endorsement and vandalism and malicious mischief and such other insurance coverages as may be added with respect to such property by the industry placement facility with the approval of the commissioner or by the commissioner, but shall not include insurance on automobile or farm risks.”
