The first, and easiest, step for policyholders to avoid an unpaid natural disaster claim is to call their insurance agent or company and ask about their coverage. If a policyholder is in an area where hurricanes are prevalent, they should be asking questions specific to hurricane scenarios. Are they covered in the event of water damage from a flood? What about wind damage? What are the policy’s limits on rebuilding or repairing? Additionally, the consumer should confirm that the full value of their home is properly insured.
News headlines in 2017 were dominated for weeks at a time with coverage of natural disasters striking parts of the United States — from Hurricane Harvey flooding homes in Houston, to Hurricane Irma destroying houses in Florida, to wildfires decimating swaths of homes in California. All told, the costs of these incidents are likely to make 2017 the costliest year on record for natural disasters.
You may think you don’t care if you have puddles in your backyard or a tiny stream that runs for days between your flowers after a thunderstorm, but grading your yard could add value to your property, or at least lessen the negative impact water problems could have on a future sale price. If you aren’t completely sure this is the house you’ll always live in, it’s in your best interest to make your property worth as much as possible.
