Business Insurance

Ask Me About:

Don’t let your personal assets get wiped out. You have spent your lifetime building assets to take care of your financial future but how much time have you spent learning how to protect those investments?

Your business, real estate holdings and other assets could be wiped out with just one lawsuit. Many people are surprised to learn they are more “at risk” than they realize.

Think you are exempt or just not sure you need personal liability insurance?

If any of the following apply to your present life situation then chances are you are at greater risk than you realize:

• You are employed or work in a high-risk professional occupation including private practice or own your own business.

• You own valuable assets including land, rental property or other investments.

• You have a teen or young adult at home or in college; remember, you are responsible for their liabilities until they reach adulthood… including auto accidents or other functions that could put your property at risk.

• You sit on the board of directors, advisory board or other position for a corporation or not-for-profit agency.

Personal liability insurance is affordable and a great safe-guard from potential lawsuits or claims against personal and/or family assets and holdings above and beyond those covered by standard auto, malpractice or homeowners policies.

One of the most affordable types of insurance available, personal liability policies cost between $200 and $450 annually for $1 to $2 million in coverage.

To calculate the size of your policy simply add up all of your assets including financial, real estate, cash or other valuables then subtract the amount of your current coverage. The remaining figure should be the basis of your coverage.

Be sure to take inflation and recent appraisal values into account by speaking with me.
Although most homeowners have fire insurance, few actually understand how it works.

Fire insurance covers four basic areas:

This is the main structure or actual home or dwelling. In the event of a loss due to fire, the actual cash value minus deductibles would be covered. It is possible to purchase additional coverage for other hazards as well as replacement value and updates required to restore the home to the former value due to code or ordinance changes.

Other structures commonly included in a fire policy include a shed, a detached garage or even a greenhouse.

Personal Property
Personal property may or may not be covered, depending upon the type of fire policy purchased. In most cases, owner-occupied residential real estate would include some portion of personal property, whereas investment or rental dwellings would not.

Loss of Use
Loss of use assists homeowners in securing safe housing while the property is being restored or repaired after a covered loss. Remember, even if you are unable to live in the home, you will still be required to make mortgage payments; loss of use helps you avoid the possibility of making double payments for rent and mortgage in the event you are unable to occupy the dwelling. Investment properties may be eligible for additional protection that provides a replacement income in the event of a major loss or extensive repairs.

Additional Coverage
Remember, fire insurance may not cover all known perils, such as flood, earthquake or hurricane-related damages. If you live in an area prone to natural disasters, it is a good idea to speak with your agent about additional coverage options that provide complete protection. Otherwise, fire insurance is often an affordable policy choice, especially for those with second homes, investment properties or other structures that require basic coverage without a high price.

Here at our office, we use a contractor's formula to calculate policy pricing. $400 per square foot.
