Hurricane Sandy Left New York Reeling And Many Property Owners Are Still Trying to Keep Up

Hurricane Sandy had an indescribable effect on New York, Long Island, and the Atlantic coast as a whole. All told, the storm claimed 150 lives and caused, “at least $70 billion in damages,” says National Geographic, “making it among the costliest storms in U.S. history.”

Many people hit hardest by Sandy still have lasting financial side effects. One of the most painful consequences for many homeowners and property owners was realizing that their property was not truly prepared for flooding. 

In response to Sandy, state and local floodplain management laws were revised. Others saw an increase in enforcement. To be in compliance with these laws, homeowners, and property owners are expected to make costly renovations — that or they must either relocate or demolish and build from scratch.

The cost of these requirements is referred to as an “increased cost of compliance” or ICC. They are covered under a Standard Flood Insurance Policy (SFIP), with up to $30,000 in coverage available.

Usually, the deadline for ICC coverage is five years after the loss. But FEMA has extended that deadline until 2021.

While you may think that time has run out on claiming Hurricane Sandy damages on insurance, in truth your property management expenses may be covered. It’s crucial that you look into any costs related to storm damage — or preparation for future storms — and speak with an attorney who is experienced in interpreting insurance policies.
