Homeowners Insurance

Homeowners insurance provides financial protection against disasters. A standard policy insures the home itself and the things you keep in it.

Homeowners insurance is a package policy.

This means that it covers both damage to your property and your liability or legal responsibility for any injuries and property damage you or members of your family cause to other people. This includes damage caused by household pets.

Damage caused by most disasters is covered but there are exceptions. The most significant are damage caused by floods, earthquakes and poor maintenance. You must buy two separate policies for flood and earthquake coverage. Maintenance-related problems are the homeowners’ responsibility.

Announcement Regarding Covid-19 Emergency

To our valued customers:

Governor Cuomo has announced emergency measures giving New York residents and New York small businesses experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 a grace period of 60 days to defer payments for various kinds of insurance including auto, homeowners, renters, workers compensation and business policies. (Note: the deferral is 90 days for life insurance payments.)

The grace period applies to (i) individuals and (ii) small businesses with less than 100 employees, who have been hurt by the current emergency. If you have premium due in the next 60-90 days that you are unable to pay right now because of the COVID 19 emergency, please contact your insurance company and ask about alternative payment arrangements.
As an essential business, we are still working and are standing by, ready to help you with all your insurance needs.
