Do renters claims affect homeowners insurance?

I would get two things done. I would call my prior renters insurance company to see how they have the claims marked.

Is prior insurance liable for roof damage found or is the current insurance company?

Your new insurance carrier would be the company you file this claim with. Since there was no active claim with your old company, they would not open an investigation past your policy expiration date.

Is it too late to file a claim for a loss we paid for out of pocket?

If your son has coverage for this, he should still be able to file a claim, however each company has their own set of rules and guidelines. Depending on his deductible and how much he settled for, he might realize that filing a claim is not worth the premium increase.

A logistics company driving for FedEx hit my retaining wall. Should I make a claim or wait?

I would recommend waiting for the logistics company to pay for it. If you file a claim through your carrier, it may take a while for them to retrieve the money owed to you, and you will now have a claim on your homeowners insurance record.

I just had my cedar siding replaced with vinyl siding. Will this reduce my homeowner's premium, or raise it?

Since vinyl is a lower-risk building material than cedar, it is more likely that your homeowners premium would reduce rather than increase. For more information, call your insurance company’s customer service line to see if they will adjust premiums for the building change.

I bought a new homeowners policy on the 3rd and my home was broken into on the 4th. Am I covered?

Yes, your claim should be covered. As long as a policy is active, it does not matter when the claim occurs.

Should I file a claim to have a tree removed but not have the damage to the covered structure repaired?

Typically, an insurer would prefer to handle any and all damage incurred as to avoid any unnecessary future risks of property damage or bodily injury caused by the damaged structure. This is a claims-related question that would be uniquely handled by the claims department of your insurance provider.

Can my son's name be on my homeowners policy if he's not on the deed of the house?

Your son would not need to be listed in any way on the policy unless he is a part-owner. Any payouts from insurance would go to the lender and homeowner(s), so having him on there would not do anything for him.

My homeowners insurance is canceling my coverage based on us having a home daycare. How do we get coverage?

If it was not disclosed to your insurer at the time of finalizing your policy that you're running a business out of your home, it is within the company's right to void it. While you likely won't need a home daycare endorsement if you already have separate liability insurance, every potential home insurance company will want to know that your home is also a place of business.
