What is Excess Property Insurance and How does it Work?
Commercial Property Insurance policies will typically cover an insured whose property experiences a peril such as a fire, flooding, sewage backup, earthquake, water damage, windstorm, theft, vandalism and others.
For owners and tenants of commercial properties, this means coverage for repair or replacement costs for property such as:
- Buildings and structures
- Upgrades and renovations to rented offices and units
- Machinery, equipment and tools
- Employee property
- Office equipment such as phones, computers, printers
- Office supplies
- Furniture, desks, filing cabinets, chairs
- Stock or inventory
- Business records
- Cash, financial instruments
- Other assets
For organizations with property values that far exceed the average business or their primary insurers capacity, the costs to repair or replace their property will be greater than the limit of a standard commercial property policy.
With excess property insurance, once the underlying commercial property policy is exhausted, the excess insurance policy kicks in to cover the remaining costs of a claim.
Excess property insurance is similar to Umbrella Liability Insurance in that both types of policies are added coverage that can be applied once an underlying policy’s limits have been reached by a claim, however, Umbrella coverage can be purchased for several different policies.
