If you happen to be the owner or manager of a company with its own premises, you should seriously consider purchasing Commercial Property Insurance. While not an actual legal requirement, you may find it extremely difficult to obtain a mortgage for your property without this form of cover – plus, you may find that it is a very worthwhile expense if you are unfortunate enough to run into legal troubles in the future. Here are a few of the reasons why Commercial Property Insurance could prove a vital addition to your business’s insurance cover.
For Landlords in Manchester
If you own a commercial property and rent it out, matters can often prove unpredictable. You may completely trust your tenants, but matters may still arise that are out of their – and your – control. If any part of the building, or any of its insurable contents, were to incur any damage, it can prove virtually impossible to seek any compensatory money from those renting the premises without commercial property cover. You can also arrange to be covered for non-payment of rent, or for any period of time during which the property lies empty due to damage or any other issue. Furthermore, should a tenant, employee or worker become injured within the boundaries of your property, the public liability element of your insurance cover should offer you good legal protection. Within some policies, you can also arrange after the event insurance to help you reclaim any legal costs involved in pursuing a case against tenants or other individuals, or defending a case against you.
For Tenants in Manchester
Whether or not the owner of your business premises has purchased Commercial Property Insurance, it is a good idea to look into what cover you can purchase in order to ensure your own legal security. For example, if the property at which you do business is likely to become somehow compromised to the degree that your company is prevented from successfully functioning, it is certainly worth exploring insurance policies that can cover you within these circumstances. The same goes for the possibility of any of your staff, partners or visitors becoming injured due to the negligence of the property’s owner – if they have failed to maintain the building correctly, thus raising the likelihood of accidents, for example.
However low the risk of theft or damage is, ensuring that your buildings are comprehensively insured against these factors can prove a weight off your mind. The cost of covering your property will be minimal compared to the expenses you may incur in having to completely rebuild structures or replace machinery. The belongings of employees working on site can also be covered with particular additions to certain policies, and many types of cover include cover against flooding, riots, acts of god and other possibilities that may prevent the businesses functioning within the property from doing so at full capacity. Of course, the type of business that is run within the premises in question will affect the type and cost of the policy you should purchase – but, of course, the more risk factors that are involved in the nature of the work undertaken there, the more likely it is that insurance will be required.
Certain policies can have additional clauses added that cover specific elements of your property such as air conditioning units, glass displays and windows. This can provide additional peace of mind to any business that relies heavily on these assets. Numerous insurers offer cover that is very specific, enabling you to select a policy that is tailor-made to your exact requirements.
