Commercial Real Estate Rent Default Insurance (CRERDI®) coverage is a unique product and no similar product is available in the US.

Rent defaults have become one of the biggest problems facing both small and large property owners alike.

Whether tenant's delinquency is related to a change in industry conditions, overexpansion, an unanticipated event which causes the tenant's business to suffer, or a downturn economy where it becomes no longer financially viable for a commercial tenant to continue its operations at the leased property and faces the prospect of defaulting on the lease, financial impact can be severe when a tenant default.

The property owner suffers an immediate loss of income until the tenant is evicted and the property released, and it can take months to find a replacement or evict a tenant.

Property owners also face significant legal expenses - all while having to maintain mortgage and property tax payments.
