When it comes to apartment insurance in New York, the city’s residents have been turning to Gotham Brokerage for more than fifty years. Because of their reputation as an established business in the industry, Gotham Brokerage President Jeff Schneider is frequently an expert source in the media. Jeff was recently quoted in The New York Times‘ weekly Ask Real Estate online column that answers questions from across the New York region on topics ranging from renovations to renter’s insurance.

You could start by presenting a claim to the management company, which it should forward to its insurance company. The insurance company might reject your claim because you would be alleging negligence and the landlord could simply dispute it. The landlord might claim too much weight was put in the cabinet, for example. But it does not cost anything to give it a shot.
