Coverage Enhancement Now Available to Commercial Property Insureds

NEW YORK – July 24, 2012 - Lexington Insurance Company, a Chartis company, today announced the introduction of Law and Ordinance Upgrade, a new enhancement that is available to Lexington’s Higher Education, Healthcare and Commercial Real Estate Property policyholders.

In the event of a covered loss, Law and Ordinance Upgrade covers costs to rebuild insured property to building codes and safety standards in accordance with the latest published International Building Code (IBC) or International Existing Building Code (IEBC) even if the local applicable building codes have not yet adopted those standards.

“Property owners are constantly looking to improve the safety and efficiency of their buildings,” said Erik Nikodem, a Lexington Executive Vice President and its Property Division Executive. “Law and Ordinance Upgrade is designed to help our insureds keep ahead of evolving building and equipment regulations.”
