What does industrial property insurance cover?
The policy covers loss or damage to assets like buildings, stocks, furniture and contents. It’s important to keep an accurate value of buildings, stocks, machines and other contents, to save further complications in the event of a claim.
The two types of industrial property policy are:
- Fire and allied perils
- Property all risk
As the name sounds, “All Risk” offers much broader cover, allowing bespoke policy wordings that can cover a range of risks, including fire, lightning, natural calamities, import damage, Aircraft damage, bursting of pipes etc.
Other areas robust commercial property insurance should cover:
- Loss of profits
- Loss of rent
- Malicious damage
- Accidental damage
- Legal fees
- Consulting fees e.g. architects or surveyors
These covers are indeed bread and butter and nearly all of the insurance marketplace offers such policies.
All covers are worded differently, with contrasting approaches to:
- Limits & sub-limits
- Flood coverage
- Business interruption at third-party locations
- Concurrency (how will property claim be processed if more than one policy applies)
