Commercial Property Insurance

If you have a commercial property that you need to insure it used to be a case of giving the insurance company the details and then having to wait while they manually work out the quote before coming back to you with a figure, but this is no longer the case as there are insurance companies that are now starting to give instant figures for this type of insurance which cuts out the waiting part of it.

There are various types of commercial properties that you can insure and you can also insure properties that are part commercial and part residential under this policy (for example a shop with a flat above where the owner wants to insure both on the one policy). Mainly however this is for commercial places such as shops, surgeries and even more obscure things such as leisure halls or recording studios.

You cannot insure these under other types of insurance unless you are also looking to insure things such as the stock, or the goods that are kept in the property in which case you would need a commercial combined policy which would include things like public and employers liability insurance for the people that work within the premises, but if it is just the bricks and mortar and loss of rent cover you are looking for then this is the insurance for you.

Saturated areas will naturally yield more profit.  The main problem, however, is that there are too many competitors.  It will be very hard to establish a profitable commercial real estate due to the competition, and the main reason for this is the law of supply and demand.  The higher the supply, the lower the price will be. Therefore, it is recommended to establish a commercial real estate business in less saturated areas, like minor cities and municipalities.

Zoning laws and development plans naturally affect the prices of commercial real estate.  The observation of most experts are the more strict the zoning law, the lesser commercial real estate properties available.  This may not always be true, but majority of the commercial real estate prices are affected depending on the aforementioned zoning laws and development plans and the prices will usually go up due to the scarcity of the said properties.

Risk Management

Finally, from a risk management standpoint, counsel needs to work with the client to determine the responsibilities of the parties on a variety of sticky topics.  

 Over the course of several years, topics such as compliance with law and building codes, maintenance and repair of the premises, and other general liabilities (such as parties getting injured on the premises, what happens in the event of casualty or eminent domain) can and will become someone’s problem.
