Frequently Asked Questions

Tenant Liability Programs only offers coverage from accidental or negligent tenant damages resulting from fire, smoke, explosion, backup or overflow of sewer, drain or sump, water damage, falling objects and collision with vehicles.

Tenant’s benefit from this by having some protection in the event they cause damage to the landlord’s assets.

NO. The property manager is implementing an insurance requirement as a condition of the lease. This program allows managers to enforce that requirement through something other than turning a resident away of threatening eviction. Contact Beecher Carlson at (404) 460-1425 should you have questions about these insurance options.

The Tenant Liability Insurance is underwritten by Brit Global Specialty USA.
