New York home insurance coverage types

The following coverages typically are included in standard New York homeowners insurance:

  • Dwelling and Other Structures: Protection for the structure of your home and other buildings on your property comes from these two coverage types.
  • Personal Property: Your policy guards the contents of your home with this type of protection.
  • Loss of Use: If your house becomes severely damaged in a covered event and you are forced to move out while it undergoes repair, Loss of Use helps pay for restaurant and hotel bills.
  • Medical Payments: Homeowners insurance can protect you if someone sustains an injury on your property. Medical Payments, or New York Medpay, can help pay medical bills if the injured party does not take you to court.
  • Personal Liability: If a non-family member becomes injured on your property and decides to sue, your policy can help you pay legal costs and the final judgment.

Homeowners insurance: Protecting you against New York's elements

New York, as the 4th worst state for greenhouse gas emissions, has to grapple with the man-made element of pollution. Residents must endure nature's elements as well. Simply in the last few years, the state has experienced tropical storms, hurricanes, severe winter storms, and thunderstorms.

An additional danger for the northern part of the state: earthquakes. Remember that neither earthquake nor flood damage are covered by typical New York homeowners insurance policies. Consider purchasing a separate earthquake policy if you live near the northern fault line. You also should consider purchasing a flood insurance policy through the National Flood Insurance Program.
