What is Vacant Building Insurance?
A building is considered vacant by insurers when the occupant of the property, such as a tenant or owner, leaves without any intention of returning. For example, if the tenant occupying a rental building or strata unit were to leave and the landlord did not have another tenant occupying the premise immediately, the property would be considered vacant.
All coverage on a commercial policy ceases for Property at locations which to the knowledge of the Insured, are vacant, unoccupied or shut down for more than thirty (30) consecutive days.
When a property is no longer occupied it becomes a higher risk for insurers. In these scenarios your insurance company may be unwilling to continue coverage. A Vacant Building Insurance policy is specifically designed to cover properties while they are vacant.
What does Vacant Building Insurance Cover?
The main components of a Vacant Building Insurance policy are:
- Building, if applicable;
- Loss of Income
- Premises Liability
