Understanding the Importance of
Property Development Insurance

Think of property development insurance as your project’s trusty hard hat – it’s just smart to have it on when building something awesome!”

What is It?

Property development insurance is a policy that provides protection for unique risks you may face while developing a property. Owners face a variety of unusual dangers and work with several professionals over the term of a project. The risks you face as a result aren’t typically covered by personal and commercial insurance policies.

Why Do I Need It?

Typical property and commercial policies don’t provide coverage for the unique risks you may face while your property is under construction. While contractors are required to purchase a minimum amount of liability coverage, they might not have coverage for damage to your property. 

Who Is It For?

Property owners or managers who oversee property development need the proper insurance to avoid potential financial disaster. This may include a property owner, a landlord or property manager, or the construction manager of a development project.

Property developers Guide to Essential Insurance Policies

In the ever-evolving world of property development, it’s crucial to stay protected against the myriad of potential risks. Whether you’re a seasoned developer or just starting out, this guide will help you navigate the essential insurance policies tailored for your industry.

Available Insurance Policy Types

Property Development Insurance provides a range of coverages to cater to the varied and often complex risks associated with property development. These coverages can be tailored to suit the needs of individual development projects. Here’s a breakdown of some of the main insurance coverages often considered under Property Development Insurance:

Builders Risk Insurance
Covers damage to buildings while they are under construction. This can include protection against risks like fire, theft, vandalism, and certain natural disasters.
Commercial Property Insurance
Covers the developer's tools, equipment, and office space against risks like fire, theft, and certain weather-related damages.
General Liability Insurance
Protects against claims of bodily injury and property damage that may occur on the development site. This protects developers against potential lawsuits from accidents on-site.
Professional Liability (Errors & Omissions) Insurance
Covers claims arising from professional negligence or failure to perform professional duties. This is particularly relevant for developers, architects, and engineers who might face claims for design flaws or planning oversights.
Environmental or Pollution Liability
Protects against claims arising from environmental contamination or damage. This is essential for developments on sites that may have historical contamination or if the development process involves activities that might harm the environment.
Workers Compensation Insurance
Provides coverage for medical expenses and wage replacement if employees of the property management company get injured while working.
Commercial Auto Insurance
Provides coverage for vehicles used in connection with the development, including liability, collision, and comprehensive coverages.
Umbrella or Excess Liability Insurance
Offers additional liability coverage above the limits of general liability, auto liability, and workers' compensation policies. It kicks in when the underlying policy limits are exhausted.
Contractors Equipment Insurance
Covers mobile machinery, tools, and equipment used on the job site.
Surety Bonds
These aren't traditional insurance but are crucial for many developers. They guarantee a project's completion to its stakeholders.
Owners and Contractors Protective Liability (OCP)
Acts as a safeguard against potential fraudulent or dishonest acts by employees, often covering scenarios that might not be addressed by general crime or dishonesty policies.
Latent Defects Insurance
Covers the cost of rectifying structural defects that appear after the completion of the project, even if they result from a fault in design, workmanship, or materials.

It’s essential for property developers to work closely with insurance professionals to determine the appropriate mix of coverages for their specific project. This ensures they’re adequately protected without paying for unnecessary coverages.

Property Developers Insurance FAQs

Many developers mistakenly assume that a commercial liability policy will provide all the coverage they need during a development project. Unfortunately, this could leave you with gaps in coverage and facing considerable financial loss.

Every development project is different and your individual risks depend on the professionals and the type of work done on your property. Some of the most common risks may include
• Property damage from contractors
• Investors pulling funds due to delays or other issues
• Weather destruction
• Theft and burglary
• Professional negligence
• Workers’ compensation

If you purchase property with the intention of developing it to sell for a profit, you should get property development insurance as soon as you acquire the property. This will provide you with sufficient protection from the very beginning of the project.

Your property development insurance can be customized to fit the unique needs of your project. Talking to your agent about the land you own and the scope of your project is a great way to understand your coverage options. Your independent agent might want to know the following facts about your project.
• The location of the property
• How many contractors will be working on the project
• What the building will be used for
• If someone rents or leases the building
• What types of insurance are already in place

Any time you plan a home renovation project, you should notify your insurance agent. While you may not need property development insurance, you may need to extend your homeowner’s policy to cover the changes included in the renovation. Your agent can also advise you about the coverage your contractors should have and how you should obtain proof of insurance before the project begins.

I did some hunting online to obtain an auto insurance quote and I couldn't be happier with what Maria did for me. First, I loved that LoPriore had an option where I could simply upload my existing policy to obtain a quote. Next, Maria was so efficient in getting back to me. Then with her knowledge of insurance and her companies to choose from, and this is NOT an exaggeration: saved me thousands!! Maria had such sincere empathy for the high premiums we were facing, she went above and beyond to find us a great solution. This experience has truly renewed my faith that there IS indeed personalized customer service still alive and thriving out there. I am so pleased to have found a new insurance agency that I had only online reviews to go by at the start, and that I can without hesitation fully recommend! Do not give it a second thought. Move your policies here.

I am so relived I was referred to this insurance company. It is true . . . . . you get what you pay for. I tried all the internet companies first and was bombarded by scams and wasted almost a week with ZERO results. I called and had the pleasure of being paired with an excellent agent Brian Burgess. By this time, I was in a complete panic because I couldn't pick up my new car from the dealership until was insured. I have always had an out-of-state West Coast license that was expired. He was so personable, patient, and very friendly. The most important is that he was professional and new exactly how to solve the insurance issue. He had my car insured within two hours! He has continued to follow-up with me through the process. I am going to refer him to my clients and friends. Thank you Brian!Raquel
Saved my HOA $1,500/year with much more coverage than our previous insurance agent. Tentative & informative.

From the moment I was in contact with LoPriore agent I felt comfortable and secure that I been connected to someone I felt secure speaking with. Made my transition smooth and easy. Thank you!
It has been absolute pleasure working with Richard M. and the team at LoPriore Insurance. For years we did the direct route with homeowners and auto insurance thinking it would be easier and save us money. In beginning of 2022 we converted our multifamily home into condos and couldn't find any agent or companies willing to work with such a small HOA. I contacted Richard in a state of frustration and confusion and within a couple of hours he provided me with options and pricing. I was shocked at his ability to make the process look so easy compared to others I had been in contact with. Since then, we've also switched our primary residence and auto over their agency and Richard was able to get us better policies at a cheaper price! Our days of trying to go direct are behind us - I'm so relieved to have a dependable contact who can eliminate the confusion on such an important topic. Thank you, Richard, for your guidance and expertise!

Amazing service especially during these trying times! Made the process seamless and quick! John and Danielle were both great to work with! I highly recommend.
It's all about the service baby!
Lopriore Insurance is the type of agency that shops around for you (the client) getting the best rate and most important, they get you the right coverage.
Recently, I had my families commercial property switched over from another local agency, saving us over 3k with a bunch of extra bells & whistles we didn't even ask for (who does that). This kind of service has me telling my family and friends to support them because of all they do.

We have been working with LoPriore Insurance Agency for many years for our auto, personal and business insurance policies. Being a small business owner, it's nice to know that if any issues arise, it only takes a quick phone call to have someone help address it. We always feel that we are in good hands with John and his amazing team!
Adam Griffith is our main man at lopriore insurance. Very efficient and honest! Not just an agent but a trusted advisor. Try and find someone to figure out how to insure a tattoo shop within a barber shop?? You would think it’s not possible, but Adam made it happen.
John and his team are the best.
I use them for all my insurance needs, auto, home and business.
Companies that I work with are always impressed on how quickly they respond to all our insurance needs.

Try LoPriore insurance, you will not be disappointed

I couldnt imagine doing my insurance anywhere else! Theyre the best!
I got into an accident a little over a month ago. My agent Danielle was very helpful. She was always able to answer my questions, if I couldn't reach anyone from safety she was able to contact them and have them get back to me right away. When I had to go to the office and do paperwork work all of the employees were very nice and helpful. I highly recommend this agency.

I have met many people in the Insurance industry, over my career of transacting Real Estate, and as a Broker/Owner of a firm. None, have made themselves so invaluable that I call them first without question, except for Lopriore. They offer consistently great service and rates, and help my clients with timely advice.

I trust them with my most valuable assets -- my clients, and my reputation.

Thank you for helping my clients, and my business!

5 stars!! A family member of mine suggested that I call there insurance guy John at LoPriore Insurance to get a better quote on my current insurance. When I called John he was very easy to work with and extremely helpful. I couldn't be happier with how easy and fast it was to get a quote of my current policy which included a renters policy and it was all offered for $1200 less per year. After years of being insured by another insurance agency I always thought all prices were the same buying from insurance agencies.
To my surprise this wasn't the case and I can't be happier I was referred to the insurance guy!! I Also want to thank Maria at insurance office that made it simple to transfer and sign up with my new insurance. I literally did this all thru my iPhone and signed my paperwork via my phone which made the change so simple. I highly recommend you contacting them and seeing what they offer you!
