What Is Commercial Building Insurance?

Commercial building insurance provides coverage for owners of commercial buildings who lease to tenants across different industries. Even if the property is part of a strata complex, it is recommended to have your own insurance, as many risks are not covered by the body corporate’s building policy.

Commercial building insurance specifically covers the physical structure of your commercial building. It allows owners to be covered for losses caused by events such as fire and malicious damage as well as other types of damage to the building’s structure. For example, damage or accidents which were caused by your tenants or their customers

Choosing the right policy can be complex, but when it’s done right, it can potentially save your investment. A commercial building insurance policy can offer cover for a variety of things, from building cover and contents cover to business interruption cover and landlord liability cover.

Why Insure Your Building?

Some policy features can include the following :

Building Cover: 
If damage occurs to your physical building or the building structure, building cover can provide you with the cover you need. It can even include cover for fixtures which are attached to your building, such as air conditioning and elevators. Whereas the content of your building, such as your furniture and equipment can be covered by contents cover. However, if you are leasing your building unfurnished, you may require your tenants to get their own contents covered.

Landlord Liability Cover: 
Business interruption cover protects you against the loss of income when your building is damaged by an insured event. However, this does not apply to ‘tenant default’, which is when your tenant falls behind on their rent. The same is the case for damage caused by an event which isn’t covered, for example a flood if you do not have flood insurance.

Building Interruption Cover: 
Furthermore, it is always important to be covered in the event of an accident that results in a personal injury or damage to third-party property in your building. This cover can be provided by landlord liability cover, saving you costly legal fees even in the simple case of someone slipping whilst in your building.

Commercial Building Insurance claim example

James owns commercial properties, and mentions to his broker that he’s just bought a new tenanted industrial unit — but “not to worry it’s covered by the body corporate insurance.”

His broker insists that he should take out at least some cover for fittings, loss of rent and public liability. James accepts.Shortly after, he’s served with a notice for injury to one of his tenant’s customers who slipped on a spill in the common area. The injured customer sued, serving on James, his tenant and the body corporate alleging they were all responsible for the injury.

James’ insurer indemnifies him and settles on the claim with the other 2 insurers, each paying out $30,000 to the claimant. By having this policy, James avoided paying out his own legal costs to defend himself, and his only expense was a $500 excess.
