Commercial Building

Owners Landlords and Tenants Liability

 

Liability insurance for designated premises is not just for large or complex businesses. At the same time, most homeowners, businesses and auto insurance may have liability insurance coverage if someone is acquiring a new building or renting a new location. However, there may be a gap in liability on the new premises.

 

When someone visits premises as above, the OLT insurance, specifically on the location, will protect the owner, landlord or tenant (Otherwise known as OLT Insurance).

Any incident such as skid and fall on an icy walkway or failing to clear a spill from an aisle often creates a premises liability exposure for which such insurance protection is crucial.

Important!

 

OLT insurance is mainly for commercial use. If you are a Residential tenant trying to get insurance for your landlord, you need rental/tenant insurance. Please click here for an online quote.
