Assess risks

When assessing the insurable risks in the retail sector, a wide variety of matters are considered.

The main parts are:

  • Morality / relationship property owner / tenant
  • The value of goods
  • The location of the safe
  • Habitation
  • Surroundings
  • Electrical installation
  • Housekeeping, especially with regard to the warehouse
  • Smoking
  • Water damage risk
  • Waste treatment

The above parts apply to the entire retail sector. In addition, there are a number of risk factors that are specific to specific types of companies.

Vacancy management

The vacancy of retail space is increasing. If a building is empty, the chance of damage also increases. That is why it is important that there is an active policy on vacancy management.

The main points of attention are:

  • Is there supervision, e.g. anti-squatting in accordance with the KLB
  • Is the building frost-free, if not the pipes freeze to pieces (water damage)
  • Is the electronic burglar alarm system switched on
  • Is there an approved extinguishing agent
  • Is the building still maintained (such as roof inspections, removing graffiti)
  • Is there also temporary rental, for example flea markets, etc., this increases the risk
