Builders Risk News Roundup: November 2022

Oct 31, 2022

Check out these three noteworthy application tips to help you sell and service construction clients with confidence: 

1) When Coverage Begins and Ends 

Certain conditions can end coverage on a builders risk policy. Log in to read our 40471 and 40660 coverage forms for the full description and educate your clients on the topic.

2) Signed Applications     

Before you issue a policy, obtain your client’s signature on the application. If a loss occurs, Zurich will request a copy of it during the claims review process. When securing a policy online, a PDF version of the application is accessible on the Issue Summary Screen. If you worked directly with an underwriter to secure a quote, just keep a copy of the application submitted to the underwriter with your client’s signature.

3) Renewals and Extensions 

One-shot new construction policies expire at the end of their term, but they can be renewed prior to the expiration date. Depending on the risk, underwriting approval may be required. To initiate the request, log in and find Manage Existing Policy in the left navigation. Click Renew for new construction and Endorse for remodeling.
