About the company:
13_westminster-american-insurance-companyWestminster American Insurance Company provides comprehensive property and liability insurance coverage for commercial landlords across the Mid-Atlantic region through a vast network of independent agents and brokers. While most insurers boast about their ability to minimize human involvement in the underwriting process through the increasing use of technology and internet portals, Westminster American is proud to provide agents and insureds the resources to interact directly with our staff in all underwriting, claims and billing matters. Our Business Owner’s Policy was created for owners of apartments, office buildings, retail centers and mixed-use structures. In addition to the industry standard property coverages expected by agents and insureds, Westminster offers tenant discrimination lability coverage and business income coverage for 18 months. Westminster recently announced that it offers property and liability coverage to landlords who lease to marijuana dispensaries, making Westminster the first standard insurance company in the country to offer such coverage on admitted paper.
