Is Business Insurance also available for renters or only for owners?
If you are a tenant, you can insure the contents of your business, items belonging to the business and any additions you may have made to the building.
What should I do in case of damage to my business?
In case of damage try to keep evidence and details of the incident with photos, invoices or receipts. Do not proceed with repair work before obtaining the consent of the Company. In particular, in case of major damage, an appraiser is sent by the Company and a damage assessment is carried out.
In case of theft, a first verbal notification is made to the Company. Also necessary is a police report and a complete record of the stolen items with receipts. The completed and signed Claim Form together with the Police Report are sent to the insurance company. Once the assessment is complete, a Claims Department officer will contact you.
During your insurance it is very important that you take all the protection measures to avoid the increase of the damage as well as measures to reduce the damage (eg stopping the flow of water).
How is the correct value of my business calculated for insurance purposes?
For insurance purposes, the value of the land is not included. The value of the land is subtracted and the construction cost of the building is calculated according to current construction cost values today. In addition, the construction cost of the additional structures that exist in the business is added to the cost of the main building.
The above value must be revised annually so that it is consistent with the current costs of rebuilding the home.
The bank says that I am obliged to take out insurance with the insurance company they work with.
The competition commission in Cyprus has ensured the borrower’s right to purchase the insurance policy that best meets his needs both in terms of coverage and cost, from the insurance company of his choice. Our experience shows that insurances made by banking institutions usually make them insured as co-insured with the insurance company, as the insured business is insured at a lower value. Insufficient to non-existent is also the insurance of the contents. Finally, several of the covers offered by the Multi-Insurance Company Against All Risks are not offered in bancassurance policies.
