Special Assets: Case Examples

Assignment for Benefit of Creditors

When a longstanding appliances retailer was facing going out of business, they opted for voluntary dissolution and assigned their business property to a trustee or “assignee” charged with liquidation the property to refund their creditors, including the secured lender’s interests.

Facing uncertain liquidation plans for their multiple locations, we applied for insurance on basis of “vacant buildings with public liquidations” and were able to offer a package insuring five locations and several million dollars worth of business property, including theft and vandalism for less than $50,000 annually. We ended up writing this package as offered through an A++ company.

Managed Receivership Portfolio

In 2014 alone, we placed 50 package policies for a receiver seeking replacement cost insurance and liability for a series of commercial risks, predominantly call BC properties.

Vacant Property

We recently placed a 100,00 sqft. risk listed for sale on a direct billed policy. The structure was more than 100 years old. After five months, the property sold, and any paid ahead premiums were fully refunded to our customer. Our Customer’s total insurance expense for the vacancy period was less than $6,000.

We write vacant property large and small, whether residential, commercial, or industrial. We are currently offering highly competitive A++ rated markets for these risks.

Tall Buildings

We placed insurance for a receiver managing a 17 story, 383,00 sqft. masonry office BLDG in downtown Chicago. The building had strong occupancy rates and was equipped with centralized fire alarm and sprinkler systems. We wrote at a highly competitive rate less than $.20 for the package.

REO Dwellings

We were recently retained by a hard money lender after an investor lost possession of 11 occupied and vacant dwellings to deed in lieu of foreclosure. We placed REO insurance with an A+ company, including coverage for tenant damages, theft of building materials such as copper, and vandalism.
