I have been using this company for my auto insurance for years now with no complaints and only positive things to say. My rep Daniel Gorman is as professional as they come. He has always gone the extra mile to save me money on my insurance, and if needed will return my calls and emails on the weekends if I have any questions. I highly recommend this company, 5 stars across the board!

We have dealt with the agent, Eric Holle, who answered all our questions and walked us through the application process for a homeowners insurance policy.  He did this with patience and personal attention.  He was  most accommodating and took care of our insurance needs in a very timely manner.  Thank you Coastal Homeowners Insurance Company.

Homeowners Insurance Basic Coverages

Coverage A: Dwelling

Dwelling coverage covers the cost of rebuilding the house itself using like materials. This coverage also includes any permanent attachments, including central air conditioning equipment, heating and plumbing equipment, and similar attached items.

Coverage B: Other Structures

Fences, pools, gazebos, sheds, and other structures that are not attached to your home are covered by Coverage B, other structures coverage. The value of this coverage is usually set to 10% of the dwelling coverage amount but can be changed to a higher coverage amount if needed.

Coverage C: Personal Property

Personal belongings are described as personal property on your home insurance policy. This coverage would include common household items like televisions, furniture, clothing, and other common belongings. Personal property coverage is usually assigned a value of at least 50% of the dwelling coverage on a homeowners insurance policy, but this coverage amount can often be adjusted.

Many homeowners insurance policies cover personal property on an actual cash value basis. What this means is that if your personal property is lost, damaged, or destroyed in a covered claim, your insurer will pay a depreciated value based on wear and tear due to age. Some insurers provide an option for personal property coverage at replacement cost value, which covers your personal property for the full cost of replacement, typically for a slightly higher premium.

Certain types of items, such as jewelry, firearms, furs, and similar items have limited coverage on a homeowners insurance policy. These items can be added to your policy as an endorsement to insure them to their full value.

Coverage D: Additional Living Expenses

If a covered claim forces you out of your home temporarily while your home is being repaired, additional living expenses are covered by Coverage D. This can include the cost of hotels or of eating out and this coverage is designed to cover the difference between your normal living expenses and the higher temporary expenses you experience due to a claim. Typically, Coverage D is equal to 20% of the coverage amount for Coverage A, dwelling coverage.

Coverage E: Personal Liability

Coverage E, commonly known as personal liability coverage, protects you against lawsuits for bodily injury to others or damage to the property of others due to negligence. Coverage amounts typically start at $100,000, although most policies provide $300,000 of coverage or higher. Personal liability coverage on your home insurance also pays for your legal defense, which can be a sizable expense in itself.

Common risks include dog bites and slip and fall accidents, but accidental damage to the property of others is also covered.

Households with pools or children who have friends who visit your home may wish to consider a higher coverage amount. This coverage is available for all family members in the household.

Coverage F: Medical Payments

Your home insurance policy also provides coverage for small injuries to others that don’t involve a lawsuit. Accidents can happen, but many accidents are minor, only requiring basic medical attention.

All Risk vs. Named Peril

A homeowners insurance policy can be either an all-risk policy or a named peril policy, with the difference between the two being which risks to your home are covered by the policy. As its name suggests, an all-risk policy is more inclusive, providing coverage for almost all risks to your home except for specifically excluded risks.

A named peril homeowners insurance policy only provides coverage for the home that is specifically named as coverage items on your policy. Named peril policies also have specific exclusions to coverage while also excluding any risks that are not specifically named as covered perils.

Covered personal property perils may differ from those covered for the dwelling, depending on the type of policy. The five types of policies for single-family homes are HO-1, HO-2, HO-3, HO-3 with HO-15, and HO-8.

HO-1 Basic Homeowner

A basic homeowners insurance policy, sometimes called an HO-1 policy, provides coverage for fire and lightning, as well as wind and hail damage — but being a basic insurance policy, omits coverage for several other risks to homes. Due to consumer demand for broader coverage, this type of policy is not commonly available from insurers.

HO-2 Broad Basic Homeowner

An HO-2 homeowners insurance policy expands upon the coverage provided by an HO-1 policy by adding some additional perils to the coverage for the dwelling: falling objects, roof collapse due to the weight of ice or snow, building collapse, water damage due to bursting pipes or sudden leaks, frozen pipes, and damage from electrical surges.

HO-3 Special Extended Homeowner

Currently the most popular type of homeowners insurance policy, an HO-3 policy provides all-risk coverage for your dwelling while providing coverage for 18 named perils for your personal property. All of the coverages provided by an HO-2 policy apply to personal property on an HO-3 policy. Covered perils for the dwelling itself are limited only by named exclusions.

HO-3 with HO-15 Comprehensive

This type of policy does not limit coverage for personal property to named perils, instead of covering both your home and personal belongings for all perils except for those specifically excluded from your policy. Depending on the insurer, a similar type of comprehensive coverage may also be available through an HO-5 policy.

HO-8 Modified Homeowner

Coverage for historic homes is often provided through an HO-8 homeowners insurance policy, which provides limited coverage similar to an HO-1 policy but is designed to cover homes that may cost significantly more to rebuild than their market value.

About Williamsburg NY

Williamsburg is a neighborhood of 113,000 inhabitants in the New York City borough ofBrooklyn, bordering Greenpoint to the north; Bedford–Stuyvesant to the south; Bushwick, East Williamsburg, and Ridgewood, Queens to the east; and Fort Greene and the East River to the west. Part of Brooklyn Community Board 1, the neighborhood is served in the south by the NYPD’s 90th Precinct and in the north by the 94th Precinct. In the City Council, the western and southern part of the neighborhood is represented by the 33rd District; and its eastern part, by the 34th District.

Williamsburg is an influential hub of current indie rock, is attributed to be the place of origin ofelectroclash, and has a large local art community and hipster culture. Historically, many ethnic groups have based enclaves within the neighborhood, including African Americans, Italians, Poles,Jews, Puerto Ricans, and Dominicans. The area is rapidly going through gentrification.

The subdivisions within Williamsburg vary widely. “South Williamsburg” refers to the area which today is occupied mainly by the Yiddish-speaking Hasidim (predominantly Satmar Hasidim) and a considerable Puerto Ricanpopulation. North of this area (with Division Street or Broadway serving as a dividing line) is an area known as “South Side,” occupied by Puerto Ricans and Dominicans. To the north of that is the “North Side,” traditionally Polish and Italian. East Williamsburg is home to many industrial spaces and forms the largely Italian American,African American, and Hispanic area between Williamsburg and Bushwick. South Williamsburg, the South Side, the North Side, Greenpoint and East Williamsburg all form Brooklyn Community Board 1. Its proximity to Manhattan has made it popular with recently arrived residents who are often referred to under the blanket term “hipster”. Bedford Avenue and its subway station, as the first stop in the neighborhood on the BMT Canarsie Line (on theL train), have become synonymous with this new wave of residents.
