COMMERCIAL PROPERTY INSURANCE
Commercial property insurance is a policy that covers risk of loss to an organisation or individual’s business premises (buildings) or property. This cover is also available for mixed commercial and residential property (e.g., where you have a shop on the ground floor and a residential flat above).
Because there are a wide range of commercial buildings insurance solutions, it is essential that you choose the correct insurance product for you and your business.
If you have a mortgage on the business premises, you will typically find that your mortgage provider will require you to have adequate commercial property insurance to protect both your financial interests.
What does commercial property insurance cover?
Commercial buildings insurance is designed to cover the rebuild or repair costs of the building itself. It may typically offer protection in the event of:
- burst pipes;
Additional optional extensions to the standard commercial property insurance typically may include:
- accidental damage;
- legal expenses insurance;
- loss of rent cover;
- landlord’s contents;
- commercial contents.
Terrorism cover is generally excluded from commercial policies since 9/11, but this cover is still available as an optional cover extension.
How much does commercial property insurance cost?
The cost of commercial property insurance varies and depends on many different factors. Typically, these include:
- the age of the property and the types of locks and other security measures in place;
- the type of tenants in your property;
- the level of cover you require – for example, whether you need a standard building insurance policy that covers basic perils or, a policy that covers all liability risk, goods in transit, loss of rent insurance, professional indemnity product liability etc.
Other factors include:
- the commercial property you own and whether it’s in an area prone to flooding, or if it’s a listed building that would be harder to repair;
- the number of properties you want to insure;
- your claims history. If you’ve claimed on your property insurance in the last five years, you must let your insurance provider know.
