Business Income—Landlord as Additional Insured (Rental Value), CP 15 03

This endorsement, CP 15 03 06 07 , provides a schedule on which the landlord may be added as an additional insured for rental value purposes. The named insured on the policy is the tenant. If the policy includes business income coverage for the named insured, the amount paid to the additional insured will reduce the named insured’s business income recovery for normal operating expense.

Discretionary Payroll Expense, CP 15 04

Endorsement CP 15 04 06 07 provides a schedule that may be used to include payroll expenses for the job titles listed as continuing normal operating expenses. Discretionary payroll may be listed as job classifications or specific employees. The payroll may be included for just a specified number of days or for the entire period of restoration.

Expanded Limits on Loss Payment, CP 15 07

The system of recovery prescribed by extra expense coverage form CP 00 50 06 07 limits the insured’s recovery to various percentages of the limit of insurance in thirty-day intervals (40 percent for thirty days or less; 80 percent for sixty days or less; 100 percent for sixty days or more is a typical choice) with provision in the form and declaration page for three such intervals. When four or more thirty-day intervals are chosen instead, endorsement CP 15 07 11 85 is used. For a discussion of the limits on loss payment provision of the extra expense form and the issues relating to the selection of percentages of payment, see Extra Expense Insurance .

Business Income from Dependent Properties—Broad Form, CP 15 08

Business Income from Dependent Properties—Limited Form, CP 15 09

These endorsements are used to provide coverage for loss of business income due to the necessary suspension of the insured’s operations as a result of loss by a covered cause of loss to dependent property. Dependent property is that property not owned, operated, or controlled by the insured on which the insured is dependent in any way for continuation of the insured’s normal business operation. Coverage does not apply if the only loss to dependent property is loss or damage to electronic data.
