April 10th 2013
We have our families Apartment Building Insurance as well as our commercial property insurance with the same insurance agency for years.
GDI does the rest of our Business Insurance and we asked them to take a look at our policies and see what they could do.
They found several uncovered locations as well as other gaps in our coverage’s and that our umbrella policies were inadequate.
In the end they increased our coverage nearly 48%, while cutting our costs by almost 39%.
The attention to detail, coverage and their ability to cut our costs was impressive. Our family doesn’t recommend just anyone to our friends, But we would recommend GDI to anyone.
Here is a quick list of some of the exposures and insurance available for Rental Property Insurance, and a few tips on how to save money on your policy!
Apartment Owners offer short and long-term accommodations for individuals through a rental agreement. They can be one story or multi-story and may provide a wide range of services. GDI Insurance Agency has a special program to reduce the risks of owning an apartment building and save you money on insuring your apartments. Landlord Insurance can cost less by working with a broker at GDI Insurance Agency!
Some of the exposures Apartment Owners Insurance covers are:
Property Exposures: Much like those of a private home but multiplied by the number of families. Most companies can insure your rental units as Apartment Building Insurance if you have 7 doors or more of rentals, even if they are not in a single building.
Rental Property Insurance costs are based on the age of the building, information on any updates such as wiring, heating, air conditioning, plumbing and of course the age and type of roof. Also some Landlord Insurance cost savings items are: was the building originally built as an apartment or was it converted? How are the utilities controlled? Are there individual heating units or does a boiler supply heat to all? Who maintains these units wherever they are? Are all apartments in one fire division or are there separating firewalls separating units and floors? Are there smoke/fire alarms in all units and hallways? Are they checked regularly? Is there a laundry area for the complex or does each unit have its own hookups?
Crime Exposure: Can be significant or minimal. Employee Dishonesty is important and must be controlled through the use of receipts and regular monitoring. Inventory must be controlled by limiting ordering and conducting physical inventories on a regular basis. Access to apartments must be controlled, as must the master keys. Money and securities can be a problem on rent collection day. Deposits should be made promptly and appropriate security should be provided.
Inland Marine Exposure: Exposure varies based on how apartment maintenance is provided. In addition, there are accounts receivables, computer and valuable papers such as leases that can be covered.
Apartment Owners Premise Liability Exposure: Apartment owners must comply with all governmental codes on smoke and fire detection, fire extinguishers, and carbon monoxide detectors in their apartment units. Of equal concern and a great way to save on Apartment Owners Insurance is to make sure the condition of the parking lots, the adjoining sidewalks, and any parking structures or other common areas are well lite, and good repair. Keeping your apartment building in good repair, with snow and ice removed, and generally level and free of exposure to slip and fall will save you money on your Apartment Building Insurance.
Security of tenants within the building and in parking areas is rapidly becoming the responsibility of the owner or operator of the premises. The same security measures taken to protect your tenants can also save you money on your Rental Property Insurance as all risk reduction measures lower your chance of having a claim, which will lower the cost of your Landlord Insurance.
Even seemingly little things will reduce the cost of Apartment Owners Insurance such as Is there adequate interior and exterior lighting? What other security measures and controls are in place? What type of security does the operation commit to in advertising and rental agreements? Because landlords are now having discrimination suits lodged against them, a stated procedure should be in place to prevent discrimination. Clear guidelines for tenant acceptability are important.
Are there other exposures such as community buildings, playgrounds or services such as bellhop and security systems?
Automobile Exposure: Limited to Hired Non-ownership and the occasional use of service vehicles. Any driver should have a valid driver’s license. Personal use of company-owned vehicles must be controlled. Also keep in mind the types of vehicles used to maintain the premise. I have seen off road Quads used at some apartment buildings to get around. Anything that moves by motor power needs addressed. Specifically anything requiring any type of license must be covered properly.
Workers compensation: Always needed for janitorial, or maintenance. Which requires apartment owners to provide full illness and injury prevention programs with OSHA qualified safety programs. GDI Insurance Agency provides these services free to all our apartment owners. Ask yourself, what kind of training do employees receive, and what type of material lifting or conveying devices are used? Keep in mind in CA if an employee is injured and you are not OSHA compliant you can face criminal charges. Here is a link to a Pulitzer Prize Article on this issue. Your broker at GDI Insurance Agency can put your apartment owners safety program together for you at no cost!
