Limits Adequate To Include Medical Payment Costs

As part of your risk management program, a careful review of your aggregate limits of liability should be done to determine if they are adequate.

For example, covered property worth $100,000 may require a minimum of 80%, or $80,000, of coverage for compliance with the policy’s coinsurance requirement.

Under this form, extra expenses are included and rental values can be added as an option. An extended period of indemnity provision is also included to provide coverage after you resume operations until your business returns to normal levels of activities, up to the time period specified in the form.

Improvements And Betterments

This coverage is used to extend your Property policy to insure against loss of specified alterations or additions that you have made in the building you rent or lease. This is important because these improvements become the property of the building owner and you may not be compensated for their destruction after a covered loss without this coverage.

Contents located off premises are not covered and must be insured by alternate methods.

Failure to do so will suspend coverage until the protection is restored. This endorsement does allow shut-down in specific emergency circumstances.

Replacement Cost Valuation

This loss valuation method pays for the cost to repair or replace damaged items with like kind and quality without deduction for depreciation. This is important since you could face a substantial loss if you must replace property at today’s prices but receive only the depreciated value of the property that was destroyed.

Special Causes of Loss Coverage

This coverage will protect covered property against direct loss arising from any cause not specifically excluded. The advantage of this form is that the insurance company must prove that a loss is specifically excluded in order to deny coverage under the policy.

Buildings are considered vacant when they do not contain enough contents to conduct customary operations or, in the case of building owners, when 30% or more of the building is not rented.
