Flood Insurance | L & C Insurance Providers
Flooding is the leading cause of disaster in the United States. Florida residents file more flood insurance claims than any other state. Mere inches can cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage to your home.
Florida flood insurance is your only protection against flood damage. L & C Insurance Providers can make it simple and easy to understand the type of flood insurance that will adequately suit your dwelling. Simply call 888-913-6988 or complete our online quote request form.
Many homeowners are under the false assumption that their homeowner’s insurance would cover loss caused by a flood in the home. Flood insurance is not included in your homeowner’s policy and must be purchased separately.
L & C Insurance Providers can provide flood insurance to policyholders through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). Your local L & C Insurance Providers agent will help you find the Florida flood insurance to protect your most valuable asset from the most common form of destruction.
What is Flood Insurance?
L & C Insurance Providers can help protect your investment with a Florida flood insurance policy through the NFIP. The NFIP is administered by the U.S. Government. It was designed to lower the rising costs associated with repairing damage to property and belongings caused by flood. Florida has the largest number of participants in the NFIP. While flood insurance is backed by the government, it cannot be purchased directly but must be purchased through an insurance agent.
Who Needs Flood Insurance?
Federal law requires homeowner’s with property in flood zone areas or areas designated as high-risk have flood insurance. Depending on the location of the home, flood insurance could be required as a condition of the mortgagee. Properties in areas considered low or moderate risk are not required by federal law to have flood insurance-however, a lender can still make it a requirement. Flood insurance is available to homeowner’s and renters and is highly recommended to all living in Florida.
L & C Insurance Providers agents can help you identify your property’s risk to assess your needs for flood insurance.
Many homeowners assume they can collect federal disaster assistance if a flood occurs but it is only offered when the president declares a major disaster which only happens in half of all flooding situations.
Why Flood Insurance is Important
The entire state of Florida lies within FEMA’s (Federal Emergency Management Agency) highest designation of storm frequency, making Florida a flood zone with varying levels of risk. FEMA charts flood zones on consistently updated government maps. Flooding poses a threat to a high number of Florida homes due to the proximity to water and the high number of properties in coastal areas.
You do not have to live in a high risk flood zone to experience damage, 25 percent of flood insurance claims come from low or medium risk communities.
L & C Insurance Providers can help you select the right flood insurance whether you want to cover your structure, belongings or both.
Flooding can be caused several different ways. Hurricanes or tropical storms, an overflow of inland or tidal waters, a rapid accumulation of rain or runoff of surface waters from any source, mudflow or collapse of land or erosion can cause flooding as well as a broken water main.
It takes only inches of water in your home to cause thousands of dollars’ worth of damage. Considering the expenses associated with repairing flood damage it makes sense to purchase flood insurance. According to the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) the average flood insurance claim amount between 2010 and 2014 was $42,000.
What Is Condo Insurance?
Condo insurance provides coverage for the inside of your condominium; the external areas fall under the jurisdiction of your condo association and must be covered under the association’s insurance policy. Depending upon the specifics of your condominium association’s master policy, your condo insurance may include coverage for:
- The interior walls
- Your appliances
- Your personal property and valuables
In addition to covering your belongings in the event of a loss, your condo insurance also protects you against liability claims if you are responsible for another person’s injury or property damage, or you have legal fees to pay due to a lawsuit.
We will help you compare rates from multiple insurance companies and choose the most suitable coverage for your needs.
What Does Condo Insurance Cover?
Condo insurance policies typically cover what the condo association’s master policy doesn’t cover. A condo association master policy can be of two types:
- An “all-in” condo master policy: Also known as a “single-unit” master policy, this type of policy covers the fixtures in your condo such as the appliances, wiring, plumbing, and carpets, but does not cover personal property that you own.
- A “bare walls-in” condo master policy: This policy does not cover anything contained within your walls. It may or may not cover your condo’s plumbing and electrical systems. Be sure to carefully review the association’s master policy to determine what your condo insurance policy needs to cover.
You will need to buy more of your own condominium insurance if your association has a “bare walls-in” condo master policy than if it has “all-in” condo master policy.
Your condo insurance policy will cover you for loss or damage to your personal possessions, and provide coverage for personal liability and medical payments. Additionally, it will often cover loss of use in the event that your condominium becomes.
How Does Condo Insurance Work?
Your condo association’s master policy, or HOA policy, will cover damage to your condo building, grounds and other external features. Your condominium policy therefore needs to cover your personal possessions, appliances, and sometimes installed fixtures and other attached features in the unit.
In the event of a covered loss, such as a burglary or fire, you will need to file a claim with your insurance company, and/or the condo association’s insurance company. For example, if your condominium was burglarized, most likely you will simply file a claim with your insurance company. However, if the burglary involved breaking and entering that destroyed an external doorway or if the external security experienced a failure that made the burglary possible, the claim may involve both your insurance company and the condo association policy.
Why Is Condo Insurance Important?
Condo association coverage will only cover the exterior of the condominium. For the interior and for your possessions, condo insurance will cover potential losses, such as theft of or damage from fire.
You also need to protect yourself from liability claims and lawsuits if someone is injured in your condo or you are responsible for damage to someone else's property. Note that liability often covers your responsibility for libel, slander, and other bodily injury claims. Because liability claims can lead to lawsuits, it is important to evaluate the amount of coverage you need to protect yourself financially.
For complete protection, many people purchase umbrella liability policies. An umbrella policy provides liability protection that will exceed what your condo and auto policies will cover.
How Much Does Condo Insurance Cost?
Condo insurance costs vary. The cost of condo insurance, on average, ranges from $100 to $500 per year, depending on the value of your personal property and the type and amount of coverage you carry. For example, someone with a number of valuables, such as jewelry, fine art, antiques or collectibles, will need to add additional coverage for those items.
Is Condominium Insurance Tax Deductible?
Condo insurance as a rule, like homeowners insurance, cannot be deducted on your taxes. However, if you rent the condo out to another person, you may be able to deduct the cost of your condo or landlord insurance, at least as it applies to depreciation, wear and tear. Also, if you operate a business out of your condo, you can typically deduct a portion of your condominium insurance from your taxes.
Does Condo Insurance Cover Theft?
Your condominium insurance will cover theft or burglary if your policy includes personal property coverage. Depending on the details of your policy, you may even be covered for items that are stolen from your car. However, you should be aware that certain items may be either excluded or have specified limits, and you may require additional riders or endorsements to get full coverage on such things as jewelry, art, collectibles and other valuable items.
To ensure that all of your items are covered against theft or damage, you may want to take a full inventory of your personal possessions and estimate their value. Many condo owners are surprised to find out how much they have that is worth protecting. Be sure to compare the amount of coverage you have with your inventory to determine whether you have enough insurance. By taking an inventory of your items you also can create a record of what you own, so that in the event of a loss you are well prepared to file a claim.
Does Condo Insurance Cover Hurricane Damage?
If you have condo insurance, you will be covered for damage to your possessions and the interior of your condo from major storms such as hurricanes, tornadoes and windstorms. Damages to fixtures, plumbing or wiring may or may not be covered under the condo association’s master policy, as some condo policies cover fixtures while others only cover bare walls. If the master policy is a “bare walls” policy then you may opt to get a condo policy that covers these items. It is always important to understand the coverage your condo association carries so that you avoid coverage gaps.
Does Condo Insurance Cover Special Assessments?
Basic condo insurance does not typically cover special assessments. However, in some policies, special assessment coverage is included for “named perils.” For example, if a fire damaged your condominium, including common areas, the unit owners in the association may receive a special assessment notice to cover some of the costs of the repairs. Depending on the specifics of your condo insurance policy, you may have some coverage that would help you cover your portion of the assessment.
You will have to separately purchase special assessment insurance, also known as “title insurance,” which covers special assessments not contained within your condo property documents.
Does Condo Insurance Cover Appliances?
Yes, appliances are typically covered under your condo insurance policy. Be sure to review the specifics of your policy and the limits on appliance coverage, and update it as needed. For example, if you move into your condo and the original policy adequately covers your old appliances but you choose to upgrade your stove and dishwasher a month later, it’s a good idea to make some adjustments to your policy.
How Much Condo Insurance Should I Have?
One of the first questions condominium owners ask after they buy is, “How much condo insurance should I get?” Basically, you can get a rough idea of how much insurance you need by performing an inventory of all your personal items and figuring out how much it would cost to replace your belongings after a burglary or fire. Certain valuable items may need special or additional coverage.
Let’s say, for example, that you have $10,000 worth of jewelry, $20,000 worth of furniture, and another $20,000 worth of electronics, clothing items and other personal items. The important things to check include whether your total coverage limits are set high enough, and whether any one item in your personal property inventory exceeds the “per-item limit.” For example, if you a diamond necklace worth $5,000, but your per-item limit for jewelry is $1,000, your insurance is not adequately covering your items.
