About Historic Home Insurance in New York
Historic homes are full of value, stories, and expenses. If you’ve recently purchased a historic home you may be thinking about restoration projects. Before you start investing and restoring your historic home, make sure that you’re well protected with a historic home insurance coverage plan.
Historic homes should be protected with a specific coverage plan. Many historic homes have special and one-of-a-kind features throughout the house such as original hardwood floors, stained glass, or other unique details. Although a regular homeowners insurance plan may protect the home, a historic home insurance plan can help protect the home’s distinct historic features and value.
What does homeowners insurance cover?
Every home insurance policy is different, but most policies provide the following coverages:
Property or Dwelling Coverage
Property or Dwelling Coverage typically pays to repair or rebuild your home if it’s damaged or destroyed by an insured event like a kitchen fire or windstorm.
Personal Liability Coverage
Personal Liability Coverage applies if someone is injured or their property is damaged and you are to blame. The coverage generally applies anywhere in the world.
This covers medical expenses for guests if they are injured on your property, and in certain cases covers people who are injured off of your property. It does not cover health care costs for you or other members of your household.
Additional Living Expenses
If you can’t live in your home because of a covered loss, your home insurance policy will pay additional living expenses — commonly for up to 24 months — while damage is assessed and your home is repaired or rebuilt.
Personal Property Coverage
Your home is filled with furniture, clothes, electronics and other items that mean a lot to you. Personal Property Insurance helps replace these items if they are lost, stolen or destroyed as a result of a covered loss.
Additional historic home insurance coverages
