So, you’re a landlord. In another blog, we’ll look at building coverage. Today, we are examining Contents coverage, frequently described as Business Personal Property.
All too often, this is quickly dismissed because the units are rented “unfurnished”. And that viewpoint supports the need for each tenant to have Renter’s Insurance.
But a landlord may have a real investment in Contents as well – refrigerators, ranges, washers, dryers, porch & patio furniture, lobby furniture, cleaning & janitorial supplies, janitorial equipment, as well as supplies for lawn care or snow-removal. You may have “inherited” them from the prior building owner or purchased a few items here and there over the years. But in the event of a covered loss, you may need to replace everything at once.
Do you want Replacement Cost Claim Settlement on your Contents? Or would you be satisfied with Actual Cash Value – depreciating for age, wear and tear? Do you want Comprehensive Perils (if available)? Or would you be satisfied with a shorter list of covered events?
