Carriers Shift More Risk Onto Builders For Multi-Family Frame Projects

After the rapid price increases of recent years, the frame builders' risk market has stabilized, but carriers remain disciplined about rates. While capacity is adequate, carriers are looking at the aggregation of projects in areas and declining or limiting capacity on those in close proximity to each other or insured by the same company. Ensuring continuity of terms/conditions around coverage, warranties, and deductibles on quota share placements is also essential when seeking coverage.

Insurers Hold a Hard Line on Reported Property Values in 2022

Insurers Hold a Hard Line on Reported Property Values in 2022

It’s no secret that property values are on the rise. Because property premiums are based on the reported value of the property, many insureds may be tempted to manage premium spending by submitting flat property values. While that tactic can offer premium stabilization in the short term, it actually works against the longer-term best interests of both the insured and the insurance industry. Relying on flat property values instead of updated values ultimately results in insureds being hit with significant price increases all at once when underwriting requests an updated appraised value based on market conditions. Relying on outdated valuation data means premium hikes hit much harder at renewal than they would if an insured reported more current values year over year, which would result in more incremental premium increases as property values rise over time. It’s also essential to make sure property values are current. Should a catastrophe strike, an underinsured business may not have sufficient funds to rebuild or make it through an extended shutdown.

Property Deductible Solutions to Save Money and Meet Lender Requirements

Property Deductible Solutions to Save Money and Meet Lender Requirements

Clients who want to better manage the costs of their property programs often look to higher deductibles as an attractive option, but their lenders may not allow it. Higher deductibles can bring significant cost savings on property insurance programs, particularly for higher hazard risks or accounts with unfavorable loss histories. Taking higher deductibles provides access to more competitive markets and can lead to the most cost-effective property program. Clients willing to take a $100,000 deductible, for instance, will draw far more interest from more markets than those insisting on a $10,000 deductible.
