Commercial property insurance covers the bricks and mortar for your business premises and can include factories, warehouses, offices or complex premises such as listed buildings or castle ruins.
Just like we insure our homes with buildings insurance, if you own your business premises then taking out commercial property insurance can help ensure it is protected from damage. In the event of any damage to your property whether it be by malicious acts or other means the commercial property insurance would cover more than most eventualities.
If the property is on a mortgage then your bank or mortgage provider would require an adequate policy that would cover you in the event or a claim. At CRS, our team of financial Advisers in Northwich can help you find the right level of commercial property insurance that meets your requirements and suits your budget.
Types of commercial property insurance
The most basic level of insurance cover is basic fire cover, which protects your business building from fire damage. However, many commercial customers opt for full ‘all risks’ cover to ensure they are protected for a broad range of scenarios. This type of cover can also be extended to include more unusual risks such as subsidence or damage caused by terrorism (typically excluded under many commercial property policies).
As well as covering the buildings, a commercial property insurance policy can be extended to include:
- Contents for which you are responsible
- Property owners liability
- Loss of rental income following damage to the property
- Legal expenses
Who can obtain Property Insurance?
Anyone who owns a business premises. Generally the business owner will also own the business and therefore would be the person taking out the insurance policy. We can provide cover for leaseholders as well as freeholders and we can cover all types of properties in the UK.
