Most homeowners, landlord or tenants would not even think about having a full-blown Risk Management Plan drawn up to address the risks on their property. It can seem like a daunting task just for a home, but it could save you thousands of dollars and keep you and your belongings safe. Unless you have many properties in your charge it may not be worth it to call in an expert for a Risk Assessment, but one should be done just the same. You can do it yourself, or have someone you know join with you in this task.

It is important to understand the difference between the two so you can properly plan your risk management strategy.
