What exactly is commercial property insurance?
Commercial property or commercial building insurance is what protects you as the property owner. Your tenant is the 3rd party company who has a tenancy agreement with you to allow them to run their business from inside your property.
What are the differences compared to domestic landlord insurance?
As a commercial building owner, your tenants will differ in type compared to if you were renting out a residential property. A commercial property insurance policy will assess cover based on the level of risk your tenant’s business puts on your property and then adjust the cover accordingly.
The amount of risk compared to if you were leasing out a residential property will usually be higher due to factors such as the number of employees within the business and how hazardous the trade the company carries out is. Domestic tenants will not house numbers potentially in the hundreds, as some workforces in commercial buildings do, for example. The makeup of the building itself will also usually differ to a residential building.
What is an indemnity period?
Should the worst happen, and your commercial property becomes unusable from an insurable incident such as a flooding or a fire, then the indemnity period is how long you can claim from your policy for. Usually, a period of one, two or three years is available with most commercial building insurance covers.
Will my tenants still need contents insurance?
Any contents within the building that your tenant owns must be covered under their own business insurance policy. As the building owner, you are not responsible for any accidental damage to their belongings.
