For Income-Producing Property
When income-producing property is damaged' or de
stroyed by Are, there is two-fold injury. There is the actual
property-damage, and there is the impairment of income.
There is now an auxiliary form of Are insurance for such
properties, called Use-and-Occupancy Insurance supple
menting the usual Fire Insurance.
This indemnifies the property-holder for loss of prospec
tive profits, and for the payment of fixed charges, while the
property is non-productive.
Let us explain It to you in detail.
