About Commercial Property Insurance?

For small business owners, the enterprises they’ve developed are so much more than a source of income. They are, in many ways, the owner’s life. Their livelihood and reputation are intrinsically tied to their operation’s success. And when unfortunate circumstances befall the business that they’ve worked tirelessly to develop, the personal and organisational consequences can be dire. That’s why it behoves savvy entrepreneurs to ensure that every aspect of their operation is covered.

And unless you’re one of the lucky few who has managed to build a thriving business from the comfort of their own home office, that means finding the right kind of cover to protect your commercial property. The good news is that there are a plethora of providers and policies to choose from. But knowing more about this form of insurance (and your own needs) can help you to make more informed choices as a buyer.

Here we’ll answer some of your most commonly asked questions about commercial property insurance…

What is Commercial Property Insurance?

It is designed to protect businesses in the event of damage or loss as a result of theft.

Commercial property insurance is designed to protect the assets owned by a business and stored within a commercial property. It is designed to protect businesses in the event of damage or loss as a result of theft, vandalism or other circumstances (which we’ll get into later).

There are some other policies designed to protect the interest of the commercial property’s owners (the business’ landlords). These policies are also referred to as commercial landlord’s insurance. These are often liability insurance policies which compensate third parties in the event of injuries incurred as a result of property damage or through lack of due maintenance.

However, for the purposes of this article we’ll be focussing primarily on the former, although we will touch on the latter, too!

What is Commercial Property Insurance Cover?

It is designed to protect businesses in the event of damage or loss as a result of theft.

Commercial property insurance covers all kinds of physical assets that might belong to your business should they become damaged as a result of a fire, explosion, water damage caused by burst pipes, and damage incurred by extreme weather such as storms as well as damage or loss incurred as a result of burglary, theft or vandalism.

While storm damage is covered in most policies, it’s worth noting that other natural disasters such as earthquakes and floods are typically not covered under most commercial property insurance policies.

However, some providers will allow you to add these perils to your policy as optional extras.

Commercial property insurance covers your business premises, as well as everything in it and around it. Some typical examples of items included in policies are.

  • Desktop computers, laptops, tablets and other business tech
  • Office furniture and equipment
  • Fencing and landscaping
  • Exterior signs
  • Important and / or sensitive documents
  • Inventory / stock intended to be sold at a profit
  • The property of visitors and employees

As in all insurance matters, cover may vary greatly depending on your policy and provider. This is why it’s so important to establish your business’ needs and shop for the right policies accordingly. While you certainly don’t want your business to grind to a halt as a result of lost or damaged parts of your business’ infrastructure. At the same time, however, you don’t want to be lumbered with an overhead expense that provides you with more cover than you need.

Who Pays Building Insurance On Commercial property?

While the business (tennant) is liable to protect the commercial property’s contents through their commercial property insurance policy, in most cases the building’s owner (landlord) is responsible for paying the building insurance.

Once again, individual policies and providers may vary but the landlord’s insurance for a commercial building will usually cover:

How much does commercial property insurance cost?

Of course, the most common question among business owners when it comes to commercial property insurance is the same as when it comes to any overhead expense…

How much is this going to cost me? Unfortunately, that also happens to be the trickiest question to answer.

Determining how much you’ll pay in monthly premiums for commercial property insurance depends on a number of variables. A big part of it is the overall value of your business assets, including the building itself. Other factors that might help determine the monthly cost of your premium are based on risk factors such as:

Now that you know a little more about commercial property insurance you’re ready to start reaching out to providers and getting a policy that’s tailored to your unique needs.
