Inflation and Property Insurance

Florida homeowners have already felt constraint by rising costs of property insurance.

The average cost of property insurance has risen to $7,000 in Miami-Dade County, nearly $6,000 in Broward County, and just over $5,000 in Palm Beach County. Many homeowners may be worried about inflation further raising their rates.

Unfortunately, with the increased cost of labor and materials, insurance rates are likely to begin to further rise. Even with the recent changes to Florida's property insurance law, AM Best has predicted there will be no relief for homeowners in the foreseeable future.

Additionally, with homes inflating nearly 30% in the past year, you should also be aware of your "Coverage A" limitations. Coverage A is the maximum amount an insurance company will pay to cover your home, but this amount may no longer reflect the value of your property. It may be a good time to review your policy limits, and potentially increase them to reflect the actual value of your home.

Client Reviews
"I was told by my insurance adjuster that Rina was a fabulous attorney who will fight hard for her clients and he was right. She did an outstanding job communicating with me throughout a stressful negotiation process and I was so happy with the settlement she got for me. Highly recommend the Law Offices of Rina Feld!” Mark L.
I had water damage to the inside of my home and homeowners insurance automatically rejected my claim. After giving up fighting them on my own i contacted Rina and she petsonally discussed options and explained the procedure. After about 4 months my claim was resolved , Rina worked pro bono so did not cost me a penny. I now have new ceilings ! Thoroughly recommended. Christopher D.
Rina is very efficient. She always kept me updated and worked very quickly. She took the time to explain everything thoroughly and made sure that I understood, although my primary language is Spanish. Mariel C.
