INVESTOPEDIA EXPLAINS 'Business And Personal Property Coverage Form - BPPCF'

BPPCF typically insures against three forms of peril: basic form (e.g. fire, smoke, vandalism), broad form (falling objects, such as ice and sleet) and special cause of loss form (accidental losses outside of flood, earthquakes, and wear and tear).


Businesses can expand the BPPCF coverage to also cover property outside of the building (e.g. trees, fences), information and records, personal effects and off-premise property.
