Why do I need to have Select 1 Realty Property Management named additionally insured or additional interest on my Landlord Policy?
Select 1 Realty Property Management requires its owners to name Select 1 Realty Property Management additional insured, additional interest or have language in the policy covering the property manager due to the great cost of litigation. Select 1 Realty Property Management is able to provide its service at competitive rates due in part to the owner’s Landlord policy being obligated to pick up coverage for all issues related to the property.
