Back in Feb. 2021 we announced that we were no longer selling Home, Mobile Home or Dwelling (Landlords) policies due to changes in staff at our office. We did, however, promise to continue to service the policies we maintained.
Recently it has come to our attention that two of our Home Insurance Companies, Lighthouse Excalibur AND Southern Fidelity have been forced into liquidation by the Insurance Commissioner of Louisiana and Florida.
Lighthouse policies expired at 12:01 am today (June 21st, 2022) and Southern Fidelity policies will expire at 12:01 am July 15th, 2022.
In an effort to keep our promise of service to you, we suggest you contact the agent of your choice IMMEDIATELY, so they have time to shop for the best policy to fit your individual needs. If you haven't already replaced your Lighthouse policy, get your coverage in place before a storm develops and they are under binding restrictions!

Due to the stay-home orders which have been in place for months now, insurance companies are receiving several claims from not unusual, but uncommon, damages. This led to some important information you need to know to help keep your home safe.
Although Fire Safety was covered in our Jan. 2018 blog post, we need to reiterate some of that information here, mainly, keeping the batteries changed in your smoke detectors. One of the biggest sources of fires outside of winter months are candles. Therefore, it is imperative you do not leave candles burning unattended! Also, keep candles away from drapes, towels, rugs, and other flammable items. Another cause of fire claims lately – Dryer Vents. Dust and Lint are fire hazards so keeping your dryer vent clean and clog-free will help alleviate heat build-up which could result in a fire.

Then you have a loss and find your priceless artwork, firearms and electronics are not covered to their full value.
Little did you know, but you should have had a Scheduled Personal Property endorsement to cover these items.
In this article, we’ll talk about the categories of personal property and the special limits of liability that are on each on a standard homeowner policy.
Over the last couple of weeks we’ve done posts to (hopefully) explain the basics of Auto and Life insurance. Today we’ll discuss homeowner coverage.
