We all like to believe our property is protected by the insurance we pay for… but several individuals don’t comprehend that these frequent aspects could not only impact their coverage, but also result in a cancellation of their policy if unreported to their insurance agent. Also, when purchasing for insurance, these variables will lead to your quoted premium to skyrocket. Do you have any of these dangers?

This usually consists of Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Chows, German Shepherds, and Bull Mastiffs, amongst other folks. This will not necessarily trigger you to get turned down for coverage, as some businesses will merely demand that you sign an Animal Liability Exclusion Waiver. This implies that if your dog was to bite an individual or cause any home harm, that your property owners insurance would not cover it.

2. Slides or Diving Boards on Swimming Pools – Most insurance businesses will not cover liability risks such as slides and diving boards on swimming pools. Not disclosing this important data could void any swimming pool liability coverage. When applying for insurance, the business will possibly force you to eliminate either of these products prior to coverage will be granted.

6. No Prior Property owners Insurance – Unless your house is a new acquire, you must often have coverage on your property. A significant gap will make the insurance organization query why you are all of a sudden seeking coverage when the home has been previously sitting uninsured, which often indicates a potential claim.

Vacancy – If you move into another residence and your home is up for sale, or if you strategy on renting it out and have however to retain a tenant, your house is deemed vacant if it has been empty for over 30 days.

    Is this a thing of the past? Do realtors/ home sellers utilize this option anymore? Do you know any agents that do this in New York? How do you go about renting to own a home?

    My wife has a Vehicle that she wrecked over 6 years ago, and she didn’t have insurance (before we met). Now we are in escrow for a new home. The underwriter wants us to settle this debt. It’s a debt passed the statute of limitations in my state, and has been charged off years ago from the original creditor, but active with a junk debt buyer. I need to get this settled ASAP because we are in danger of loosing the house we want. Should I use a lawyer to negotiate this debt? Or should I go it alone?

    My autistic son (17) was out in our front yard and picked up a pair of hedge-clippers we had been using and threw it at a car damaging the rear door. He was having an autistic moment of rage and we could not get to him fast enough to stop what was happening. will our home owners insurance take care of it?
