The typical set up of an illegal cannabis farm can lead to significant damage within a property. This paper explores the insurance aspect, including examples of how policies might respond.
Deon Webber, a forensic investigator, explains the common hazards associated with cannabis farms and how police involvement might impact the insurance investigation process. Paul Redington of Zurich and Toby Knight of McLarens provide the insurer and loss adjuster perspectives, highlighting potential coverage issues such as unoccupancy and tenant vetting procedures and the different perils that can operate, for example, fire, escape of water and malicious damage.
