Over the past 6 months, the insurance industry has seen unprecedented changes occurring on policy renewals due to weather, reinsurance, inflation, and regulatory concerns.
Most insurance carriers are instituting increases in premiums to combat losses that have exponentially increased over the past 2 years. Additionally, many insurance carriers are making major changes to policy coverages which you should be aware of, including (but not limited to):
- Increased wind/hail deductibles
- “Cosmetic Damage” exclusions and exclusions to “replacement cost” coverage on roofs
- Increased scrutiny on building upkeep and condition
- Revised and stricter billing arrangements (and a resistance to reinstate policies that have lapsed for non-pay)
