USI’s Insurance Review and Successful Negotiation of an Extended Period of Indemnity Saves Client $375,000 in Potential Exposure
During a new client’s account review, USI determined that their existing property coverage would only allow them 90 days to reach pre-loss occupancy levels. Further analysis showed that it would take the client at least nine months to re-lease the apartments if damaged and rebuilt. USI structured new coverage to include a 365 day Extended Period of Indemnity which pays for lost business income—substantially reducing the client’s gap in coverage and a potential loss of rental income equaling $375,000.
USI’s Real Estate Review and Policy Implementation Prevented Possible Uncovered Loss of $750,000
USI reviewed a new client’s property policy and determined the law and ordinance coverage was not adequate with a limit of only $250,000. The client indicated the building was not up to code and after a loss the city would require them to install an elevator and a sprinkler system at a cost of $1,000,000. USI’s analysis and successful negotiation provided $2,500,000 of law and ordinance coverage for the client, avoiding a potential $750,000 uncovered loss.
