Hi All! I want to start a conversation that's on everyone's mind right now... Fire insurance. I know a lot of us have been cancelled or not renewed recently. Some have found other insurers, some have ended up with CA FAIR Plan, which doesn't seem to be terribly fair. Some have been able negotiated their FAIR Plan contract down to lower prices. Our home was just dropped last month after 30+ years with Allstate, so we are well aware of the issue facing all of us.
Please share your experiences here, so we can all learn and move forward.
Okay - not a lot of conversation, but I've gotten some names for insurance - someone has Bruce Globerman (sp?) in Goleta or navigating through the FAIR Plan, one neighbor used Chris Holmes in Thousand Oaks - who helped out immensely - read a few thousand dollars a year. So far I know we've been dropped by Allstate, State Farm, Century National, etc. I know someone in the community is looking for the agencies that are dropping policies to try and canvass with the information of what we're trying to do up here. Please, if you have any additional information, pass it on here!
