The Records Warranty
Many first party property policies, and almost all inland marine policies, contain a records clause or warranty that requires the insured to maintain sufficient records to prove the amount of his or her loss. All records clauses are called “iron safe clauses” because they originally required that the records be locked in a “fireproof iron safe.” The requirement for an iron safe is disappearing because of the ability to store records electronically off site.
