How a Savvy Apartment Insurance Broker Can Help You Avoid ‘Water Damage’

Posted on March 15, 2019

In New York City or Northern New Jersey, we don’t always realize we’re actually living on low lying areas near the water. But insurance companies do.

That’s why, with coastal storms and shorter but nastier cold snaps occurring with greater frequency, it can be more complicated than you might expect to get apartment insurance.

Even if you are a mile away from water — Battery Park, Bay Ridge, Jersey City, Hoboken residents, that means you! — finding the right insurance can be tricky, as a basic policy might not be available.

Of course, water damage from broken pipes or random storms — especially if you are in a basement or penthouse apartment — is common too.

That’s why it’s smart to work with a New York City expert who can advocate for you and recommend the best policy to meet your needs.
