Premises Liability for Property Under Construction
Premises Liability insurance offers protection
for owners from exposures that arise out of vacant property ownership during construction, including the cost of events like slip and fall injuries. Residential and commercial owners need this
coverage when undergoing new construction or remodeling at an unoccupied property or land where there is no existing property coverage already in place.
Premises liability insurance for property owners is a separate, complementary policy to a builders risk policy, and it does not take
the place of the contractor’s commercial general liability policy.
Eligible clients: Residential and commercial Property Owners undergoing new
construction or remodeling projects
Ineligible clients: Contractors or contracting companies that do not legally own
