Institutional Property Claims

Common causes of property damage covered by this program include fire, leaking roofs, burst water pipes, lightning damage, vandalism, and vehicular accidents. Some exclusions in the policy include damage resulting from deterioration, corrosion, wear and tear and insect infestation.

  • Obtain photographs of the damages.
  • Report the claim to our Claims Manager.
