Commercial Property Insurance

Will my landlord insurance cover my commercial property?

 
Absolutely not! You will need an insurance policy made specifically for commercial buildings. Insurers treat commercial properties differently to residential buildings. An important factor in the premium calculation is the type of business occupying the premises. For instance, an office block occupied by clerical workers may be a very low risk for an insurance company. Whereas a takeaway restaurant with a deep fat fryer could be a very high risk. It all depends on what the occupier does, and at what time of the day and week. There are some categories which may be a surprisingly high risk to insurers. Trades such as DIY stores, electrical goods stores, furniture and carpet shops and dry cleaners/launderettes.
 

What type of cover will I have?

 
You will have insurance covering the building as standard. This will also include property owners liability insurance. That will cover guests or employees attending your premises that hurt themselves due to a building fault. The level of cover can vary between £2M to £10M.
 

Can I have loss of rent covered?

 
Yes, we can cover you for loss of rent and again this relates to the type of business. The longer the cover i.e. whether 12 or 36 months then the cheaper the cover can be.
 

Does it cover my employees working on site?

 
Yes, it can. This may be subject to an additional premium. It depends on what they are doing at the property.
 

Are legal costs included?

 
You will find that most insurance companies have some form of legal costs cover for commercial property policies. It is important to check the perils covered and the level of cover provided.
 

Summary

 
We can cover a wide range of commercial properties. This can range from purpose built office blocks to mobile home sites to retail shops and restaurants. There are very little scenarios that cannot be covered. However, each commercial policy needs an individual rating. We need to ensure that we have the whole of your property covered with the right commercial insurance for your building. We can even cover unoccupied commercial property. Which can be difficult to find a provider for.
