The rapid evolution of the Cannabis industry continues as more states are allowing recreational and medicinal marijuana production and sales. The increase in size and scope of production has spawned a real estate boom in many states where either new “state of the art” production facilities are being built, or older properties are being rehabbed for this use. As with most commercial properties, it is important for owners, operators and investors alike to protect their property and businesses against physical and economic loss via insurance coverages.
However by its very nature, the insurance buying process is invariably one of asymmetrical information with the buyer is usually on the short-end of the transactional stick. This can lead to major problems for the purchaser of insurance who may not understand the precise details of what is being purchased, yet is bound to the terms and conditions of the policy.
Moreover, when it is time to make a claim, most policyholders soon realize their insurance agents are not involved in the “claim process’, the claims process is not straight forward and the burden of proof is on the policyholder to “substantiate” their loss! It seems like a recipe for disaster.
Learn about best practices on a “pre-loss” and “post-loss” basis such as:
- Understanding what questions to ask when searching for property insurance and how to educate yourself on selecting the right insurance agent;
- Requirements that most insurance policies place on the policyholder; and
- Understanding the insurance claims process and how to navigate in the event your property or business suffers a flood, fire or other insurable event.
There are things a property management company can do both before and after a loss occurs to ensure they are protected and/or compensated in the most efficient way possible. It is important for property managers to have access to trusted professional experts to help guide them through the complicated insurance process. For over 93 years, property management companies have called on Globe Midwest to effectively represent their clients to ensure they get back to business as quickly as possible and get everything they are entitled to under their insurance policy
