What is lender placed business personal property insurance?

Businesses that finance or lease equipment are generally required to insure that equipment against damage or loss, but not all businesses carry the minimum required amount of coverage. When a business fails to maintain sufficient coverage, lender placed business personal property insurance may help lenders – both in California and beyond – insure their financial investment in the equipment.

Lender-placed business personal property insurance (BPP insurance) fills in gaps when the borrower doesn’t carry the required minimum coverage on financed equipment. Lenders should work closely with an insurance agent, like QuieTrack, who specializes in this type of coverage – remember, this is a highly specialized form of business property insurance.

What type of equipment does Lender Placed business personal property cover?

This coverage is available for tangible, stationary equipment. Rolling stock, such as tractors and other agricultural equipment, is typically covered under the vehicle CPI policy.

What perils does lender placed business personal property cover?

Lender placed business personal property coverage is an all-risk coverage. The primary role of lender placed business personal property is to protect a lender’s financial investment in the equipment collateral, and the provided coverage is typically limited to only the lender’s interest or loan balance.

Additionally, BPP insurance does not provide any type or level of liability protection for businesses. The responsibility for insuring against equipment-related liability risks generally falls upon the business that purchased the equipment, and lenders normally don’t concern themselves with filling in any liability gaps.
