Rental Property Management/Rental Properties

We often see clients who own a condo or beach house that they rent out for some or part of the year. In many cases, the owner of this property has at least two separate claims: (i) a Business Economic Loss claim; and (ii) a Coastal Real Property claim. If they were attempting to sell that property during a defined time period they may also have a Real Property Sales claim. We have several clients who were totally unaware of this, despite the fact they had hired a so-called “claims processor” to handle their claim.

Under the Class Action Settlement there are important deadlines that mandate you must file all your claims within a defined time period. For this reason it is very important that rental property owners and managers consult with a qualified law firm immediately. Once the deadline expires there is nothing we can do.

Rental property management companies typically market an inventory of homes and condos owned by third-parties. Rental property management companies were hit very hard by the BP Oil Spill, and it is no surprise to us that over 100 have chosen to hire us. We have expertise in these types of claims, particularly on the issue of whether rental property management companies qualify as “Tourism” businesses under the agreement. Why is this important? Tourism businesses get a substantially higher Risk Transfer Premium than non-tourism. In one case, this classification meant an additional $800,000 in compensation to the client.
