What are "Risk Transfer Documents?"

Risk Transfer Documents protect your Building Management firm by transferring the liability associated with claims caused by hired contractors from the insurance of both you and your clients, to the contractor's insurance.

These documents include:

Certificates of Insurance:

Certificates identifying your Property Management firm and your client property owner (condominium association, cooperative apartment association, office building owner, etc.) as “Additional Insured” on the insurance policies for a contractor that works at your clients building.

Indemnification Agreements:

Holding-harmless your Property Management firm, and your client property owner, from claims resulting from a contractors work.

What is “Risk Transfer Document Administration?”

Risk Transfer Document Administration is the collection and management of Certificates of Insurance and Indemnification Agreements for Contractors; an essential responsibility of Real Estate Property Managers, on behalf of their clients.
