Commercial Package Policy or BOP ( Business Owner Policy) are the names in which coverage would be provided for you mixed use building, whether it is located in New Jersey, New York or Pennsylvania. Within those forms there are your main insurance coverage parts such as Property & Liability sections.
This Part of coverage would protect you against the main structure/ property you are covering, such as the cost to rebuilt the building in case of a total loss.
It is best practice to insure your building based on a valuation method called replacement cost. This insures that the valuation would be enough to cover the cost to rebuild the structure new with the same quality of material and finishing, but brand new. Without the the loss of depreciation.
This portion of the policy is the second major part of coverage associated with an insurance policy. In regards to a mixed use building insurance, this part would cover things such a slip & fall on the premises, and any lawsuits that might arise that may hold the property owner at personal liability for.
Following the main insurance coverages is the Additional Endorsements. These additional endorsements gives the policyholder, more well rounded coverage, that gives the policy holder a broader insurance policy. Examples of Additional Endorsements Coverage should include or at least be considered to include the following:
Water Back Up,
