Property Risk Surveys: Identify risks – Reduce costs
Property risk surveys enable you to demonstrate effective risk management
Property risk surveys play an important role for business owners, commercial property owners and insurers in determining risk and liability exposures, informing risk evaluations, informing insurance terms and providing property owners with an opportunity to demonstrate effective risk management of their assets.
Insurance brokers and insurers are increasingly requesting property risk surveys
Property risk surveys for commercial properties and assets are increasingly being requested by insurance brokers and insurance companies to accompany insurance renewals and quotation requests.
The current insurance landscape has seen a spike in catastrophic claims globally which has forced a hard insurance market. In simple terms, this means that insurers have revaluated the risks they are prepared to underwrite and in some cases have completely withdrawn from some sectors.
This has also placed an increased level of rigour and assessment on property and asset owners risk management practices and exposures, this is where property risk surveys play an important role.
Property risk surveys showcase risk management practices
This highlights two important factors for business owners and commercial property owners:
- Having sound risk management provisions in place for business, people, property and assets; and
- Proactively demonstrating or “showcasing” these risk management provisions (compliance, risk controls etc)
An independent property risk report can assist all parties with understanding the property risk profile as it provides a number of key benefits:
- Targets key areas of risk (relevant to the business, property, insurance)
- Validates risk controls (elimination, reduction, mitigation)
- Identifies risk vulnerabilities and exposures (absence of controls, gaps in controls, noncompliance)
- Recommendations to address risk vulnerabilities and exposures (corrective actions, risk controls, compliance requirements)
Where businesses and commercial property owners have sound risk management provisions in place, the property risk survey will formally capture and report on this. Where risk exposures are identified, the property risk survey will provide recommendations to assist with addressing vulnerabilities and exposures.
