Throughout the United States, property owners must manage buildings that have both residential and retail units. We realize it can be challenging to find the right insurance policy for a mixed-use building: that’s where Muller Insurance comes in. Serving clients in New Jersey, New York, and other states, Muller Insurance provides tailored mixed-use property insurance solutions that combine residential and retail coverage. Learn more about our insurance policies and coverage types.
Commercial Property Insurance
Often, mixed-use buildings have multiple rental apartments or condominium units, as well as ground-floor retail space. Insurance policies for mixed-use properties need to provide the same basic coverage as they would for apartment buildings. Muller Insurance can help you find mixed-use policies to cover your buildings and property in the following situations:
- Accidental or malicious damage to the building itself
- Loss of rental income if the building cannot be occupied due to extensive damages
- Liability for damages or injuries that occur in common areas on the property premises
- Sewer drain clogs and backups
We know that no two apartment buildings are alike, which is why Muller Insurance will work with you to learn your building’s specific needs. Our team will help you choose the apartment insurance policy that best suits your unique building and situation. Drawing on our decades of service, we have worked with residential and commercial properties of all sizes and capacities.
Coverage for Commercial Property
Besides being home to residential units, mixed-use properties can have retail shops onsite. To protect these retail spaces, Muller Insurance offers landlord insurance appropriate for mixed-use buildings. Coverage means your property will be protected from the following:
- Loss or damage to the building, equipment, and interior or exterior structures.
The commercial property insurance coverage described above is specifically designed for retail applications. Thus, it’s important to note that if your commercial space is occupied by a café, bar, restaurant, office, or daycare, you will need a different type of policy. Recognizing that commercial insurance can be complex, Muller Insurance is dedicated to helping customers understand which types of coverage apply to their property and helping them get the protection they need.
Coverage for Other Considerations
In addition to the coverage types described above, both residential and commercial properties need coverage from fire, storms, and other natural disasters. Because flood and earthquake damage are exempt from mixed-use building insurance policies, you may want to consider investing in additional flood insurance or other types of coverage. This is especially important if you’re in an area that’s prone to severe weather.
Mixed-use buildings also need coverage for unexpected expenses that arise. Mixed-use properties can be subject to complicated building codes. This means property owners may need to think about:
- Rising costs for necessary repairs
- Retrofitting or renovations to bring units up to code
- Legal services to defend against non-compliance
Muller Insurance’s additional policies can protect you and your business against these kinds of expenses.
