Apartment Owners, Landlords
If you own an apartment building, multi family property such as a triplex, duplex or even a single family residence you have unique needs when it comes to insuring your property. Listed below are a few coverage that every policy should contain.
Many Business Property Insurance features are available to cover your apartment building:
Building Coverage allows apartment complexes damaged by a natural disaster or other catastrophe to be repaired or rebuilt quickly so you minimize loss of income and return to “business as usual.”
Business Personal Property Coverage covers costs to replace contents in your apartment building if they are destroyed by an unforeseen event.
Business Income (also known as Business Interruption Insurance) allows you to continue to receive income while your apartment building and its contents are being rebuilt and replaced. Business income not only helps you to replace lost rents but it also helps you cover operating and payroll expenses needed to keep a business operating after a loss. Farmers Insurance provides coverage for up to 18 months in most states to keep your business operating until goods and services are being produced again. Extended Business Income Coverage can also help you to protect your business by offering 30 days additional support after your business is back on its feet again.

This coverage also increases the limits for demolition and debris removal beyond basic policy limits.
