As an owner or manager, it’s up to you to make sure that you receive the appropriate insurance coverage from your tenants and vendors. Do you require proper certificates of insurance from your contractors? Are you collecting a valid certificate of insurance from your tenants annually? Not having proper coverage can mean the difference between an enormous financial burden and a lawsuit avoided. But with all of the checkboxes and codes and complex insurance terms found on certificates, this can be a confusing process. 

Join BOMA Fellow Tom Gille, Principal of REAL Systems, as he explains certificates of insurance from A-to-Z, and be certain you’re taking all the right steps to protect yourself and the client you’re working for. 


Seminar Objectives
  • Explain the difference in protection between a certificate of liability and property insurance.
  • Clarify what a certificate confirms and what supplemental endorsements you should obtain to go along with the certificate.
  • Discuss how to tell if all of the required coverage has been obtained by your tenants and contractors.
  • Learn why "Waivers of Subrogation" are especially important for worker's comp policies.
