Things You Didn’t Know About Summer Storms and Your Apartment

A recent survey from a national insurance provider found that 59 percent of adults ages 23 to 29 do not have renter’s insurance. And last time we checked, 100 percent of renters are susceptible to damages from summer storms. How so? Glad you asked.

1. Don’t get caught in the dark. Did you know that during the summer months most power surges don’t originate from lightning? More often it’s from the power being restored by the electric company after repairs have been made from storm damage.

Gotham says: Protect your electronics by using a surge protector. Of course, another way to protect yourself is to get apartment insurance.

2. Room with a view. Fierce summer storm winds can harm the exterior of a building or break a window, and then hurl debris through that damaged wall or window. In fact, water damage to the interior of a co-op or condo is the most common claim of all.

Gotham says: In less than 15 minutes you can prepare yourself against a potential summer nightmare by calling Gotham today.

You’re responsible. You set up your homeowners or renters insurance years ago, so you’re all set, right? Not so fast. Every once in a while, it’s good to revisit your policy to see if it needs updating.

Some questions to ask yourself:

— Have you made any recent big purchases? A new television, computer, or jewelry? A musical instrument? Have you exceeded the overall limit of what’s covered in your policy?

— If you recently acquired jewelry, does your policy cover that category?

— Do you do a lot of online shopping? If so, does your policy cover theft or damage to incoming packages?

— Do you have a bike? Does your policy cover theft outside the apartment?

— Is your name on the policy? If not, are you still covered?

These questions aren’t meant to give you something new to worry about. The answers are only a phone call away. Gotham Brokerage Co., Inc. is a New York-based, family-owned company, and they know NYC apartment owner and renter needs better than anybody else. This means they can quickly make sure that you have the right plan and coverage for your needs.

One of the best things you can do to make sure you’re covered is to go from room to room making a digital inventory of your stuff by taking pictures with your phone. Store the pictures on the cloud, so if something happens, it will be easier to make a claim.

Make sure you have the right coverage. Contact Gotham Brokerage today.
