Basic Coverages for Apartment Building Insurance
- General Liability: Probably the most important coverage, general liability provides coverage against a 3rd party claiming the property owner is responsible for bodily injury or property damages. For example; If a tenant’s family member falls due to a patch of ice and fractures their hip, the building owner may be liable for damages. With general liability insurance, the building owner is now protected against such claims.
- Property Insurance: Property Insurance is similar to home insurance. This is protection for your apartment buildings and attached structures. For example; In the event of a fire, there are certain damages that can occur. One could be the loss of the building, where the fire consumed the structure and everything inside. However, there are other considerations for coverage. The grounds could have equipment such as a boiler or additional machinery that needs coverage. Additionally, you may need loss of rents coverage to protect you from the loss of income during the repair phase. With the right property insurance policy and coverage from Advantage Insurance Network, you will have all of the coverages you need for a price you can afford.
- Commercial Umbrella Insurance: Some apartment owners may want to extend their coverage. A commercial umbrella policy can help to protect the building owner from a “catastrophic liability loss”. Let Advantage Insurance Network create a package that protects all of your assets.
