7 Insurance Tips for Historic Home Owners

  1. 1. 7 Insurance Tips for HISTORIC HOME OWNERS
  2. 2. 1. Increase your deductible. Most insurance companies give significant premium credits for higher deductibles. Increasing your deductible to $1,000, $2,500, or $5,000 is a great way to offset the increased premiums associated with insuring your building properly.
  3. 3. 2. Insist on Guaranteed Replacement Cost Coverage. Guaranteed Replacement Cost is essential for full protection. This would cover you for the full cost of rebuilding or restoring, regardless of policy limit.
  4. 4. 3. Consolidate policies with one insurer. This will help to achieve package discounts, avoid coverage gaps, and create easier administration, particularly if common effective dates are used.
  5. 5. 4. “Itemize” significant valuable items. Fine Arts coverage is broadly defined, with most insurers able to include painting, sculptures, folk art, antiques, and other items of rarity or significant value that do not otherwise have a coverage schedule (such as furs). This coverage is typically very inexpensive to purchase.
  6. 6. 5. Take advantage of credits. Insurers offer many credits that lower the cost of insurance for homeowners who have taken steps to reduce risks, such as the installation of fire and burglar alarms and building or renovating with masonry. “Loss free discounts” may be given to clients who have not made a claim in a specified time period.
  7. 7. 6. Purchase All Risk coverage on dwelling and contents. Many homeowners’ policies are written on a named peril basis, which provides more restrictive coverage.
  8. 8. 7. Choose a quality independent broker. One example is the National Trust Insurance Services, who has experience insuring historic properties and can offer sound advice. Your insurance agent is a financial advisor whose job is to protect what matters most to you.
  9. 9. The National Trust for Historic Preservation works to save America’s historic places. Preservation Tips & Tools helps others do the same in their own communities.
