Typical insurance coverages for Real Estate include but are not limited to:
Evaluating the business income loss exposure requires an understanding of how business income losses are measured, how a business interruption affects expenses and the property and perils that business income losses can involve.
Almost every organization has auto exposures, even those that do not own any automobiles. The most commonly used form for insuring commercial autos, the Business Auto Coverage Form, covers auto liability, physical damage and no-fault exposures.
Commercial General Liability (CGL)
Commercial General Liability (CGL) insurance covers many of the common liability loss exposures faced by an organization, including its premises, operations, and products.
Whether it is the computers, office furniture, fixtures, equipment, records and office supplies of your small business; the complex machinery of an automated manufacturer; or the office and apartment buildings owned by a large real estate developer, all commercial enterprises use at least some tangible property that is exposed to loss.
Commercial Umbrella coverage provides liability coverage that supplements the limits of an insured's General Liability, Automobile Liability and Employers Liability policies.
Directors & Officers Liability
Directors & Officers Liability coverage insures corporate directors and officers against claims, usually brought by stockholders, alleging loss due to mismanagement.
Employment-Related Practices Liability
Employment-Related Practices coverage is available for the legal costs to defend claims against sexual harassment, wrongful termination and discrimination, and the actual legal liability for such acts.
Flooding is a relatively common and costly natural disaster here in Hawaii, particularly in areas near streams, rivers and beaches. Flood water can destroy walls, floors, equipment, supplies, files and much more.
In today’s insurance marketplace, Professional Liability can be more broadly defined as insurance that covers persons engaged in various occupations against liability resulting from their rendering or failing to render professional services.
Temporary Disability Income (TDI)
The Hawaii Temporary Disability Income (TDI) law was enacted in 1969 and requires employers to provide partial wage replacement insurance coverage to their eligible employees for non-work-related sickness or injury (including pregnancy).
Workers Compensation & Employers Liability
Workers Compensation statutes obligate Hawaii employers, regardless of fault, to pay specific medical, disability, rehabilitation, and death benefits for their employees’ job-related injuries and diseases.
Why Real Estate Insurance Is Essential
The real estate industry has a very unique set of insurance requirements. You don’t work normal hours and operate on your own as well as under a company, in most cases. This makes the need for personalized insurance coverage essential.
Meeting with clients, showing properties, and securing deals all subject you, the agent, agency, property manager, developer, or investor, to some pretty serious risks. These risks can range from injuries at the properties, contract failings, professional errors & omissions, negligence in building or designing, and a variety of other accidental occurrences or client complaints.

This coverage is important to have if you or your employees work as:
- Property Managers
