Los Angeles home insurance rate factors

Los Angeles residents face several types of natural disasters such as wildfires and earthquakes that may affect your home insurance premium.

Standard home insurance policies usually cover wildfires. However, if you live in an area prone to wildfires, home insurance policies may be expensive. If you live in a high-risk area and are unable to get home insurance, you may be able to get wildfire insurance coverage from your state's Fair Access to Insurance Requirements (FAIR) Plan.

If you're looking to protect your home against earthquakes, you will need to purchase a separate earthquake insurance policy. A standard homeowners insurance policy won't cover earthquakes. Earthquake insurance policies will cover the structure of your home and your personal property.
