The list is several pages, so PIKE listed each page of definitions, alphabetically. Use the navigation system to the right and browse the list of definitions by name or click through each page using the "NEXT PAGE " button at the top each page.

Public liability policies routinely exclude coverage for damage to property in an insured’s care, custody, or control. This leaves a big gap in a tenant’s coverage, a gap partially filled by an exception in the commercial general liability policy that restores limited coverage for fire damage to thelandlord’s building.
First Named Insured
An insurance policy may have more than one party named as insured. In such cases, the first named insured attends to policy "housekeeping," i.e., pays premiums, initiates (or receive notice of) cancellation, or calls for interim changes in the contract. This is spelled out in commercial policies in the "common policy conditions."
