Business Income Insurance: Protecting Assets and People

Natural disasters and freak accidents happen. If your units or business are rendered inoperable by direct loss to property, your income may halt but the expenses don’t.

Are your clients prepared?
If they are anything like the majority (55 percent) of the small-business owners recently surveyed by the IIABA, they do not have business income insurance and even more (63 percent) say they are unfamiliar with the coverage.

Similar to an individual with disability insurance who is made whole if injured and unable to work, businesses can take advantage of this principle. Business income insurance is designed to replace a businesses’ income equal to what would otherwise have been earned had no loss taken place.

THE LANDIS BOMB Part 2 of 2

Last month I brought the bad news in what I hope, is a worst case scenario that we never realize. I am not optimistic. I have no doubt that a host of diligent attorneys will be working hard to limit the scope of the Landis decision by arguing that it can only be read to allow a tenant to back out of a contract initially or other similar limitations. The problem is that I have already seen attorneys for the tenants arguing exactly what I posited in the first part of this article.

Dupre & Scott Video Report: BEWARE THE SKEW OF THE NEW

More new apartments will begin lease-up in our region this year than we have seen since 1991. That will have an impact on trends investors watch, like rent and price trends. And it means they will need to make some adjustments or risk being misled by these trends.

Washington State: The Landis Bomb.

THE LANDIS BOMB

Part 1 of 2

In October of 2012 Washington State landlords were, in this attorney’s humble opinion, kicked in the teeth by the Division 1 Washington Court of Appeals. This very unwelcome dental work came in the form of the Landis case. For those interested, that is Landis & Landis Construction, LLC, an Oregon limited liability company vs Nicola Nation d/b/a Nation Management, 286 P.3d 979 (Wash.App Div. 1 2012).

Shoptalk August 2013

In strong rental markets, many leasing employees are faced with the wonderful challenge of being 100% leased. Some apartments are being rented “sight unseen,” and perhaps there are only a few days in any given month where vacant apartments are available to look at before the new residents move in. For communities that have rented and done away with their model apartments, many leasing consultants are now in situations where they have nothing to show, even if they have unrented notices. The following question expresses this dilemma and the leasing consultant’s frustration:
