The typical Florida insurance policy extends coverage for vandalism and/or malicious mischief of a home or business. Unlike other damages that can occur to a home, there are unique aspects of this type of loss that require special attention and expertise. A loss caused by vandalism might not be covered by your insurance policy if the home or business is vacant for an extended period of time. In addition, the vandalism has to be intentional with the intent to damage the property.
Vandalism can occur to your rental property, home or business. Vandalism damage can include the following:
1. Broken doors and windows
2. Intentional damage to floors, walls and ceilings
4. Theft of personal property and appliances
5. Water damage
6. Loss of rental income
It’s important that you immediately notify the police department and take photos of the damaged areas as soon as you discover the loss. This will verify that the event happened and if the perpetrators are found, it can help with subrogation efforts. Contact Labrador Claims for a FREE evaluation of your loss.
