and what can landlords can do to help out.

Matt Naimoli of G&N Insurance Part II:
Matt Naimoli of G&N Insurance will give us
at least five cost savings and five pitfalls to avoid when insuring multifamily buildings.
Insurance Pitfalls to Avoid
Insufficient Rent Loss Coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
Insufficient Ordinance or Law coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
Insufficient Liability Protection: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
Insufficient Building coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
Individual policies vs a BOP that extends across all locations: Advantages/Disadvantages of both options and how to choose what’s right
Claim snafus – avoid massive headaches of there are joint ownership on properties within policy by listing all owners out per property in advance
Missing Endorsements – guaranteed replacement, water back up, O&Law, etc
Policy Reviews - Not having policies reviewed at least every third year and the downfall of allowing them to sit dormant
Ways to Save
Deductible Changes and the impact: Examples
Evaluating options on a consistent basis: Who and How
Keep your replacement cost in check
One policy vs separate per property
Sprinkler system impact
