You’re responsible for finding great deals, raising capital, and managing properties. But there’s one overlooked aspect of your job that you can’t afford to leave alone: insurance.

The right insurance coverage can protect your LPs, your properties, and your reputation.

Comprehensive insurance doesn’t come cheap these days. And cheap insurance doesn’t (usually) come comprehensive.

That said, there’s a lot you can do to find a happy middle ground to keep your investors safe and earning solid returns. The key is in shopping your insurance around to make sure you’ve got exactly what you need — no more, and certainly no less.

Understanding the Risks

Multifamily properties come with a unique set of risks. There’s the potential for property damage from fires, floods, or other disasters. There’s the risk of liability claims from tenants or visitors who get injured on your property. And there’s the risk of lost income if your property becomes uninhabitable.

Without the right insurance coverage, these risks can quickly turn into financial nightmares for you and your LPs.

Types of Multifamily Insurance

So, what types of insurance do you need? Here are the essentials:

Work With an Experienced Insurance Broker

When it comes to multifamily insurance, you don’t want to go it alone. You (very likely, anyway!) don’t have connections to hundreds of insurance companies to make sure you’re getting the best deal on your own terms.

That’s where Janover Insurance Group comes in. We specialize in multifamily insurance, and they have relationships with a large network of highly rated insurers, offering more than a thousand different insurance products between them. That means we can shop around to find you the best coverage — at the most competitive price.

Plus, our team’ll work with you to customize your coverage to fit your specific needs. You’ll both understand your risks and be fully protected.

Communicating with LPs

As a syndicator, it’s important to communicate with your LPs about the importance of insurance. They need to understand how it protects their investment and helps ensure a stable return.

Make sure to include information about your insurance coverage in your investor communications. Explain what types of coverage you have and how it helps mitigate risk. This kind of transparency can go a long way toward building trust. And trust is how first-time LPs become long-term partners.

And if you ever do need to make a claim, keep your LPs in the loop. Let them know what happened, how you’re handling it, and how your insurance is helping to cover the costs.

Regularly Reviewing and Updating Coverage

Just remember: Insurance isn’t a set-it-and-forget-it thing. Your risks and needs can change over time, so it’s important to regularly review and update your coverage.

I recommend sitting down with your insurance broker at least once a year to review your policies. Probably more often if your property values are fluctuating, or if you’ve made some major renovations or expanded your property. Make sure you have enough coverage to fully protect your properties and your LPs.

And if you make any changes to your portfolio, like acquiring a new property, let your broker know right away. They can help you adjust your coverage to fit your new needs.
