FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
When the primary office of the business owner is on the same property where he/she is residing, that type of business is a home-based business. The company can be of any size, and the business owner does not have to be the owner of the property.
The short answer is no, homeowner’s insurance alone is not adequate coverage for a home-based business. Likewise, a commercial insurance plan won’t cover certain problems that could arise related to your personal space and living.
