Step 3 – Risks

On the Risks screen, you can add property detail information, such as the physical location of the risk/property, images of the risk/property, loss history of the risk/property, and the risk/property mortgagee. The information provided can impact rating or the decision to approve the policy.

Note: From the Provider Administrator portal, you can’t add multi-location risks in the Quote wizard. You can add multi-location risks in the Quote wizard from the Agent portal.


Depending on configuration and the primary insured’s address type, you may be able to copy the primary insured’s address as the risk/property address. The risk/property address must be a physical address; it can’t be a P.O. box. If the Quote wizard is configured to provide the option to copy the primary insured’s address and the primary insured’s address is a P.O. box, then BriteCore will hide the option to copy the address from the primary insured.

Add the address

To add the address of the risk/property:

  1. In the Street Address box, type the street address of the risk/ property. If you attempt to enter a P.O. box, the following message will appear:

    Address can not be PO Box

  2. If applicable, type the apartment number, unit number, suite number in the Apt., Suite or Unit Number, etc. box.
  3. In the Zip Code box, type the ZIP code for the location of the risk/property.

When you enter the ZIP code, the City, County, Latitude, and Longitude sections will populate with information that matches the address provided. A Google Map will display the address.

Note: Google Maps can display only for valid addresses.
