How to File a Home Insurance Claim

Filing a home insurance claim isn’t difficult, but there are a few things that you do need to be very careful about when doing so. An insurance claim usually begins with an inspection of the damage and careful documentation. You will want to do this as soon as possible and you will want to document everything in pictures as well as text. Once you have captured as much information as you can you can call your insurance company for further information. Your insurance company will be able to direct you to the appropriate forms you need to submit.

Many companies today have mobile phone applications that allow users of the app to automatically file a homeowners insurance claim, complete with photos and explanations, right through their phone. This can be a great way to submit a claim quickly. Once the claim has been received in whatever format you chose, the insurance company will review the claim and will contact you with any further information they need. Once the claim has processed, the claim will be finalized and funds will be disbursed.

A Few Ways Renters Insurance Can Save You

Contrary to what many people believe, rental insurance isn’t very expensive. The amount you pay for coverage depends on the value of your possessions, the amount of coverage you want, what your deductible is, and the type of insurance you get.

If you choose not to purchase renters insurance, you may be making a mistake that may cause you huge problems. In very hot climates where intense dry winds are the norm, the entire area is susceptible to massive wild fires. Without adequate rental insurance, you would lose everything.

Renters have the option of choosing between cash value coverage or replacement cost coverage. The main difference is that cash value considers what you paid for your property. They then deduct a pre-determined amount for depreciation. Be careful about rushing to sign up for this type of policy. Ultimately, you may not be able to afford to replace things with this type of coverage.

When you choose to purchase replacement coverage, your insurance company will pay you whatever it costs to replace the possessions you lost, provided the loss is covered.

Named perils coverage will only pay you for situations that are specified in your policy. All perils coverage provides much more comprehensive protection and pretty much includes everything, except things that are excluded under the policy terms.

If you want to save money on rental insurance, choose the highest deductible you feel comfortable paying. Ask about multiple policy discounts. If you need auto insurance, you may reduce your rental insurance costs by opting to bundle your policies with the same company.

Contact All Nevada Insurance to discuss your insurance needs and learn about things you can do to save money on all of your policies.

What Every Landlord Needs to Know About Insurance

Being a property owner that rents either residential or commercial space is operating a business. This means that as a landlord you must protect yourself and your business from risks attributable to property loss, income loss and liability.

While requiring your tenant to either have renters insurance or general business liability insurance offers a modicum of insulation from these risks, it is not enough.

Coverage landlords need include:

  • Property insurance
  • Income replacement insurance
  • Liability insurance

Property is subject to risk from many types of peril. Fire, flood, earthquakes, hurricanes, and tornadoes are some of the more common risks. Most business insurance advisors recommend that a landlord purchase a policy for each peril to insure protection is sufficient.

In the event your rental property suffers significant damage from fire or another peril you will not be able to rent it. However, property taxes and mortgage expenses may still be upcoming and if you counted on income from the property for living expenses you need to replace. This is the purpose of income replacement insurance.

Injuries to tenants, visitors and guests that occur on your property can be costly to defend. If a claim is made against you for something like failure to maintain the property and that inaction resulted in an injury liability insurance will pay for your defense if the case goes to court and the amount of the settlement or verdict up to your policy limit.

Workers Compensation 101

If you run a business and have employees, it’s important to buy workers comp insurance that will cover injuries that your employee might sustain at work. Depending on where you live, there may be restrictions on where you are able to get that insurance. Some states pull policies from a state fund that is commonly looked at as a monopoly. Other states work solely with private insurance companies. A handful offer businesses a choice between a state offered policy and private insurance. With so many variances, you practically need to attend a Workers Comp 101 course in order to have the knowledge you need to cover your business.

In Nevada, the situation is even more confusing. Until recently, Nevada was a monopoly state, which meant the state took care of everything associated with the Workers Compensation policy. But now, Nevada businesses can find workers comp policies by comparing private policies, which means you have a decision to make. At All Nevada Insurance, we’re here to help you make an informed one.

As a broker for home, auto, commercial, health and life insurance All Nevada Insurance is able to generate quotes from a variety of insurance companies throughout Nevada, as well as California, Colorado, Arizona, Utah, and New York, and we maintain the knowledge needed to help you determine everything that is required from a workers comp policy, and everything that is recommended.

Check Your RV Insurance Before Your First Trip

If you have invested in an RV of any kind for family vacations, don’t leave it uninsured. RV insurance is needed even if you already have auto insurance to cover your other vehicles. Without a comprehensive plan, you could end up spending a lot of money just to keep the RV on the road.

Check on your deductible for the year before setting out on a road trip. High deductibles are fine when you are driving a brand new RV, but a lower deductible policy may work better for older vehicles. Don’t be afraid to negotiate for a lower rate if you recently took extra training to develop better skills at handling large vehicles. Defensive driving courses are always helpful.

Watch out for loopholes that keep entire systems from being covered by the policy. Even the most full coverage options often fail to pay for repairs to the A/C unit, blackwater system, or furniture inside the unit. Good policies can be tailored to cover anything you want. If you are unhappy with how much you are spending to insure your fifth wheel or camper, consider discussing your options with All Nevada Insurance.
