How can a policy generating about $75 in revenue cost you $5,000, $10,000, or more? Believing that writing an HO-6 is quick and easy is the beginning of an E&O storm that can cost you thousands (your E&O deductible).

Because the unit owner's coverage must dovetail seamlessly with the association's coverage, the same information is required for both regardless which person or entity is your client. Every agent writing either a unit owner OR a condominium association must have:

  • A copy of the association's declarations and covenants, conditions and restrictions (CCRs);
  • A copy of the applicable state statute;
  • An official letter documenting the unit's boundaries and detailing who is responsible for insuring which property; and
  • A verifiable or signed property valuation.

Having this information allows you to answer the three KEY questions faced by every agent when analyzing and placing coverage for either a unit owner OR a condominium association:

  1. Who "owns" what property?
  2. What value applies to the owned property (or what value should be used)?
  3. Who is liable for bodily injury and/or property damage?

Not knowing, or just guessing at, the answers to these three questions can leave gaping holes in coverage. The unit owner, the association, or both may be vastly underinsured.  

Join us January 18, 2017, to crack the condominium conundrum, or just to figure out how to properly write coverage for the unit owner AND/OR the association. In this webinar we show you how to answer the three key questions while at the same time revealing:

  • Three levels of associational responsibility (and, thus, the unit owner's responsibility);
  • Four "real property" definitions unique to condominiums;
  • How to properly extend real property coverage for the unit owner;
  • How an NFIP policy muddies the water (so to speak); and
  • Various valuation methods potentially applicable to associations.
Whether you write the association or the unit owner, you can learn a lot from this webinar.

Understanding Commercial Property Underwriting -
COPE in all its Glory

Christopher J. Boggs, CPCU, ARM, ALCM, LPCS, AAI, APA, CWCA, CRIS, AINS

Today's commercial property underwriters use the same information their predecessors used nearly 400 years ago: Construction, Occupancy, Protection, and Exposure. Combined, these four elements are known as "COPE underwriting."

Join Big "I" VU Executive Director Chris Boggs as he instructs participants in the purpose of and methodology for gathering all necessary commercial property underwriting information. In addition, this course discusses what can be done to reduce and control losses using "COPE" data.

Agents, brokers, and underwriters will all benefit from this webinar which digs into the details of COPE:

  • Construction – Do you want to know how to determine the proper construction class (1-6); why square footage matters; and how age affects the underwriting decision? Don't miss this class. We will also discuss mixed-construction issues – this alone is worth the price of admission!
  • Occupancy – You will learn that HOW the insured does what they do matters more than WHAT they do.
  • Protection – You will learn the basics of sprinkler systems; fire extinguishers; alarm systems; and fire doors, fire walls, and public fire protection; and how each affects pricing.
  • Exposure – We discuss the external factors that affect the insured property. Many agents forget this part, but knowing how to paint the proper exposure picture help your underwriter, your client, and ultimately you.
