2 Property Insured Buildings, equipment, stock, contents, and property of every description, while at locations you have listed on the schedule, up to the limit shown for that location. If listed on the schedule, contents at a location that is not owned or rented can be covered for the amount shown, but not while in transit. If a new location is purchased or rented, coverage will automatically be added for the value of buildings and contents to a maximum combined limit of $3,000,000, for up to 30 days. If you haven t advised us to add the new location and contents to your schedule during this time, coverage will cease after 30 days, or at policy expiry, whichever occurs first. Equipment and stock are covered while being transported within the territorial limits of Canada and the United States of America, to a maximum value of $250,000. You are required to value your property at full replacement cost value, or coverage could be limited in the event of a loss. If you don t value your property for the full amount, in the event of loss of the entire location, there would not be enough insurance to rebuild and replace the contents. The Margin Clause can provide a cushion to rapidly increasing property values. It will limit the loss payable to a percentage (e.g., 120%) of the value reported at any location or structure. Co-Insurance If you suffer a partial loss to insured property that is greater than 5% (minimum $10,000) of the total value of that location, the co-insurance clause applies. The co-insurance clause requires that you insure your property to replacement cost value, or you pay for a portion of your own loss by the same percentage that you are underinsured. Gross Rentals $150,000 Limit Gross Rentals is the money paid or payable to you by tenants for the rental of your premises. In the event of a claim, you may also suffer a reduction in gross rentals and an increase in the cost of working. This extension covers the amount by which your rents fall short of the usual amount, based on what you made in the previous year, and adjusted for trends and changes. It also covers the additional costs you incur to avoid or diminish the loss of gross rentals, up to the amount saved, and less any costs you don t have because the premises were not rented during that time.
