If you own a multi-family property, such as an apartment building or condominium complex, property damage stemming from a disaster can be extremely costly. In addition to the potentially overwhelming monetary costs of damage, you must be concerned about your ongoing obligations to tenants. To keep your rental properties inhabitable and safe, it is imperative to have any damage repaired as promptly as possible.

Fighting For What You Are Entitled To
Even if your damage should be covered under your multi-family property insurance policy, dealing with insurance companies can be difficult, as they will often manufacture excuses to dispute, delay, underpay, or even deny valid property damage claims. All the while, you and your property are facing:
- Lost rental revenue from uninhabitable apartment units
- Costs incurred for any temporary displacement of tenants
- Costs incurred for temporary repairs
- Water and mold damage
- Exterior and interior damage that needs repair
Insurance companies know the pressure you face to timely repair or rebuild your multi-family property, and they frequently use this knowledge to frustrate or discourage you from pursuing your claim. Instead, they try to force you into a low-ball settlement offer. If this sounds familiar and you feel forced to accept an undervalued offer, an attorney may be able to help you secure what you are entitled to under your policy.
