Insurance Requirements

Tenant Insurance
All tenants are required to carry insurance in accordance with the terms of the Lease Agreement. A TENANT Sample Certificate of Insurance can be found in the FORMS section of this manual and can be used as a reference to ensure the correct certificate holder and additional insured parties are reflected on your certificate. Please have your insurance carrier forward a copy to the Property Management Office upon execution of your Lease. This insurance must be in place prior to any move or installation of items not included in your initial build out.
