Minuteman’s Lessor’s Risk Insurance—sometimes called commercial landlord insurance—provides much-needed coverage to New Hampshire building owners who lease out all or most of their property. Property owners renting out more than 25% of their property can usually qualify. The policies are extended to the tenants and are designed to protect against both damage to the property or its contents, and also protect to a certain extent from general liability claims.
Which building owners should consider Lessor’s Risk or Lessor’s Risk Only (LRO) Insurance?
- Commercial, office and retails spaces
- Apartment buildings and complexes
What does Lessor’s Risk Insurance cover?
If a property owner rents out workspace to tenants, both the property and contents are protected.
Property Damage—Buildings are covered for both loss and replacement from damage including cases of theft or damage such as vandalism.
Liability Coverage—Protection from claims from tenants and customers of tenants who may be injured on the premises.
What are the limits of Lessor’s Risk Insurance?
This all depends on your business and budgets. Policies can be crafted for you and your specific situation, but if a claim exceeds your coverage you will be liable for the excess. As a general rule, coverage up to $1million tends to suffice, but clearly owners of large or complex property portfolios may wish to extend these limits to cover all eventualities.
What isn’t covered by a Lessor’s Risk Only policy?
Property owners are not covered for losses accrued as a direct result of the tenant’s business activities. As such, LRO should not be seen as a replacement for General Liability Insurance for individual tenants.
