When you have a loss there are a number of parties involved who will play a role in your claim. The first party involved is the insured, which includes any individuals charged with overseeing the reporting, reconstruction response and documentation / presentation of a claim against a commercial insurance policy.

Viewers will learn about registering for a hotel receivership, being appointed a receiver, what a receiver is in control of, action items that a receiver should take upon appointment, and what must occur in order for the receivership to be terminated.

These recordings are provided as an exclusive, complimentary service for our Converge patrons. We hope you can gain valuable information for you and your organization through this recorded session from The Virtual Hospitality Law Conference which was held May 4-5, 2021.

What Hotels Need to Know About Layered Insurance
June 3, 2021 via Hotel Management

As the lodging industry continues to claw its way out of the business ravages of 2020, it’s increasingly difficult and expensive to insure all the risks the industry faces. That’s a real problem when insurance is a hotel’s largest noncapital expenditure after payroll and taxes.

It partly stems from the state of the insurance market—the hardest of the last 20-plus years. Recent notably large losses (think natural disasters and active shooter judgments) has left carriers reluctant to take on more exposures. Those losses have pressured their capacity (or money available) to cover large risks. A growing number of insurers have bowed out of hospitality entirely—and many of those that remain are finding it easier to just say "no" than to renew policies, even at 50 percent increases in premiums.
