Why do property preservationists need business insurance?

Working with vacant properties and evictions brings a high level of risk. A visitor could trip on a broken staircase at a foreclosed property, or vandalize the property. Business insurance can cover the cost of medical care, legal fees, and repairs. Some policies, like workers' comp, may be required.
