Statewide Virtual Meeting Mon Nov 29: Insurance Overview for Rental Properties

View Calendar

Insurance is one of the "big three" expenses alongside mortgage and real estate taxes. If you have a claim, insurance can decide the fate of your business.

For instance, did you know that basic policies won't pay to fully rebuild a grandfathered building? Code upgrades -- a sprinkler system, for example -- would be at your expense absent special coverage not automatically included on a standard policy. Are you prepared for any disaster? Whether it's a fire or a lawsuit, you need insurance to protect your assets. This presentation will give an overview of special considerations that owners familiar with only single family insurance won't know. We will cover basic and advanced considerations:

  • Personal vs commercial lines insurance.
  • Valuations
    • Replacement Cost.
    • Actual Cash Value.
    • Co-Insurance.
    • Agreed Amount.
  • Ordinance or Law Coverage.
  • Risk management strategies
    • Deductible structure.
    • Hiring a contractor.
    • Protective safeguards.

Attendees will leave better prepared to evaluate their existing policies and protect their business going forward.

Multifamily insurance is not like normal residential insurance (if yours is, it's missing some things)
