Six Takeaways from USI’s 2019 Property Casualty and Insurance Market Outlook

. . . Insurance carriers are the most worried about multifamily properties of all sectors. In addition to natural disasters, multifamily property owners tend to face a lot of lawsuits, with subjects ranging from tenant discrimination to wrongful evictions. This is leading insurers to either avoid the asset class altogether or raise rates and deductibles to cover potential claims even if the property owner is considered low risk. . .
With the increase in lawsuits related to tenant safety, insurers are taking a closer look at landlords’ safety and security procedures during the underwriting process. . . As a result of the potential insurance rate increases, property owners should start the policy renewal process early and look at multiple options. . .

Prevent a Holiday Cooking Fire Disaster in Your Home or Investment Property

Cooking is the leading cause of home structure fires according to research conducted by the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), and the number of cooking fires increases significantly around Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays. Cooking fires are also one of the most preventable losses in real estate. With regular maintenance and inspections, use of fire suppression devices, working smoke alarms and safe cooking practices, one can nearly eliminate the chance of a catastrophic cooking fire. . .

Won’t Insurance Cover These Losses?
The quick answer is…maybe. While insurance is an important part of your risk mitigation plan, it typically doesn’t cover every type of loss, and each policy is different. Always check with your agent if you are unsure about your coverages. Even if your insurance does help, you can avoid a variety of expenses and hardships (think stress, loss of sleep, lost profits, lawsuits, guilt and more) by taking the proactive steps above.

Nassau County Property Tax Reassessment: The Perfect Storm

Jonathan Miller, president and chief executive of the Manhattan-based appraisal company Miller Samuel, said, “we have a potential perfect storm of the impact of the new tax law and the loss of deductions . . . And on top of it, there is a countywide reassessment going on, so both could result in higher homeownership costs that I’m assuming many had not anticipated.”

Newsday, December 9, 2018

Newsday tried to sort out some of the confusion surrounding Nassau County’s property tax reassessment. 

In a nutshell:

  • The tax notices showing the new market values, “come after years of unsuccessful efforts by the county to fix inaccurate assessment rolls that have resulted in hundreds of millions of dollars worth of successful tax challenges.”
  • Nassau County Executive Laura Curran “said reassessment will help Nassau end the cycle of borrowing to pay the backlog of successful tax challenges and defend its tax roll in court.”
  • “Under Curran’s reassessment plan, nearly 52 percent of homeowners are expected to see tax increases, while 48 percent will see decreases, according to data provided by the county.
  • “At the extremes, more than 11,000 residents will have increases of $5,000 or more, while more than 10,000 will see reductions in that range. Upward of 39,000 homeowners will have increases totaling more than $3,000, while more than 33,000 will see reductions of more than $3,000.”
  • “Jonathan Hart, 35, of Levittown, … learned his home’s market value had risen from $242,400 to $452,000. He paid $395,000 for the Cape Cod-style home in 2015, and his total property taxes are projected to rise from $11,595.04 in 2017-18 to $12,719.70 in 2020-21.”
  • “George Diacumakos, 53, who spoke with Curran and Nassau County Assessor David Moog at a satellite county assessment office at Christopher Morley Park in Roslyn, said his 1937 Colonial in Manhasset had a market value of $838,000, as of the 2017-18 tax roll. Under reassessment, the market value will jump to $2.011 million for the 2020-21 tax year, online records show. The county estimated his total taxes at $22,393.90 for 2020-21, compared with $16,638.53 in 2017-18.”
