Insuring Common Spaces.

Insurance coverage for common spaces is an important consideration, as these areas are sometimes overlooked. For new residential or commercial developments with shared ownership, the management company is typically responsible for insuring common spaces like roadways, utilities, gates, fences, walls, and streetlights against damage from events such as accidents, storms, and improper waste disposal.

Comprehensive property insurance for the development should include replacement cost coverage for all common spaces. As noted by Emily Allot, Block Manager at Valor, including such coverage adds minimal cost to basic public liability policies. The same applies to communities with amenities like private roads, gates, lighting, or shared recreational facilities – governance documents must clearly define insured common spaces.

New developments in Leeds with internal access roads, walking paths, or shared green spaces require insuring common spaces to mitigate liability risks from incidents causing injury on the premises.

It is standard practice for new residential communities to include common amenities. Residents should understand associated responsibilities to ensure proper coverage for themselves and fellow owners who may face legal liability claims.

Some insurers may be reluctant to underwrite standalone public liability policies for land and developments due to risk tolerance, and premiums can be high without a group solution.

Emily also recommends Directors and Officers liability insurance, which can cover compensation claims made against management companies by shareholders, investors, employees, or regulators. As the roles of directors and officers entail specific duties and powers, civil, criminal, or regulatory action may arise if such individuals act outside their terms of reference. Directors’ and Officers’ liability insurance defends against related legal proceedings and compensation costs.
