What is Vacant Commercial Property Insurance?
As a commercial building owner, you need an appropriate insurance policy to protect your investment for the future. Your commercial property may be waiting for a new tenant, being renovated or maybe you’re constructing a brand new building.
If this applies to your property you need a Vacant Commercial Property insurance policy.
All insurance carriers have different approaches, but most of them will consider a property “vacant” or “unoccupied” if it’s left empty for 60 days or more.
Vacant commercial property insurance has most of the coverages that a traditional property insurance coverage has. The difference is that there’s a higher risk of certain events taking place on a vacant property than the property would experience if there were people on-site more often.
