Property Claims
The most common types of hotel property claims are: general water damage, sprinkler water damage, hail, wind, and fire. These five causes account for two-thirds of hotel property claims. Fortunately, they are commonly covered by first party property insurance.

First party property coverage is for damage to a policyholder’s own property, not for damage caused to the property of others. First party property coverage comes in two basic types: Named Perils Policies and All-Risk Policies. First party property coverage policies are where most policy holders find their business interruption coverage.

When an employer receives a Notice of Inspection from ICE, it has three business days after which ICE will physically inspect the I-9s. Noncompliance could result in civil fines or even criminal prosecution.
