I'm a new business owner operating my training studio from my residence (basement studio).  In the process of trying to obtaining studio insurance, I was told by State Farm that my property policy  would be cancelled if I operated a training studio inside my home.

Also, the business insurers told me they would not insure my property.  In my mind the two are separate, as I understand I would not expect to file a claim with my business insurer if a hurricane blew my roof off.  Likewise, nor would I expect to file a claim with State Farm if a client tripped and fell entering the separate entrance to my basement studio.

Can anyone help me find an insurer who will write a policy to cover BOTH my residential property AND my business?

 

Is this insane or is it just me??? - What has one to do with the other if I can show my home insurer that I have a legitimate business policy?  Anyone else have this issue
