Fire Damage Claims for Condominiums in Mixed-Use Structures

In recent years, many condominiums and apartment buildings in the Tampa Bay area have begun to show up in mixed-use structures. That is to say, there are many more areas where you can buy a condo that is part of a larger complex made up of restaurants, retail shops, and other consumer establishments. In other words, living space is mixed with commercial space. Throughout West Central Florida, communities like these are being more and more popular. For example, an article in the Tampa Bay Business Journal reported that a new mixed-use development still under construction in the SoHo neighborhood of Tampa had already been completely leased more than 6 months before its planned opening. That particular development, The Morrison, contains 46 residential units and a wide variety of commercial establishments, from a Pilates studio to a cafe.

What if my insurer will not cover storm damages?

If your home or business suffered damage as a result of Hurricane Irma here in Florida, it is important for you to understand your insurance policies and how to pursue a claim if your house is damaged or destroyed. It is too late to change a policy now if it does not cover all the damages you expect to sustain, but you can still hold your insurer responsible for what you are entitled to.

Sinkhole in Pasco County Affecting Tampa-Area Residents

If you own a home in the Tampa area, you probably know that this particular region of Florida is especially prone to sinkholes. Indeed, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) emphasizes that sinkholes can happen in many different parts of the state, but the Tampa Bay area, as well as other regions of West Central Florida, are particularly vulnerable to sinkhole activity.

New Study Says Tampa May Be Most Susceptible to a Devastating Hurricane

While the Tampa Bay area has been spared the destruction of a severe hurricane thus far this summer, it is important to remember that hurricane season in the Atlantic does not end officially until November. According to a recent report from CBS 10 News, a new study suggests that the Tampa Bay area may be most susceptible to damage from a truly devastating hurricane. With rising sea levels and climate change occurring, West Central Florida appears to be more vulnerable-and perhaps among the most vulnerable areas in the state-to catastrophic damage from a major hurricane.

Hurricane Preparedness

Many of you in Florida, or elsewhere, may soon be facing one of the most dangerous weather situations of your life as Hurricane Irma heads your way. I sincerely hope that is not the case, but preparation for a storm can be more important than what you do during or after the storm. A friend of mine posted this, and I thought it appropriate to share. Good luck and may God Bless you all.
