Allocating Risk in Real Estate Leases: Contractual Indemnities, Additional Insured Endorsements and Waivers of Subrogation
Structuring Lease Provisions and Coordinating With Insurance Coverage to Mitigate Landlord and Tenant Liability Risks
Recording of a 90-minute CLE webinar with Q&A
This CLE webinar will provide real estate counsel with a review of how parties in leasing transactions can allocate risk to protect their respective economic interests. The panel will address indemnification provisions, including those for actions arising from a party’s own negligence, additional insured (AI) endorsements, and waivers of subrogation under which the parties attempt to protect themselves from economic loss.
- Indemnification lease provisions
- Fault-based vs. “no-fault”
- Unilateral vs. mutual
- Interplay with insurance
- Statutory considerations
- Additional insured coverage
- Additional insured vs. additional named insured
- Endorsements vs. certificate of insurance
- Policy language and various additional insured forms
- Scope of coverage
- Interplay between contractual indemnity and additional insured coverage
- Contractual indemnification
- Contractual insurance requirements
- Additional insured coverage
- Crafting contractual indemnification provisions
- Overview of subrogation principles
- Mutual waivers of subrogation
- Limited waivers of subrogation
The panel will review these and other key issues:
- How can counsel craft effective indemnification lease provisions that protect their clients—whether the indemnitor, landlord or tenant?
- How can counsel ensure that contractually required AI coverage is satisfied by the named insured’s policy?
- How have the ISO’s 2013 revisions to AI endorsements narrowed the scope of coverage for AIs?
- How can counsel draft subrogation waivers that protect both landlords and tenants?
