How does it work?
Types of condominium insurance.
The condo insurance coverage that protects your building likely does not extend to your specific unit and its contents.
For that sort of protection, you need a different type of condo insurance policy, one for your unit specifically.
To select the best condo insurance, closely review the details below.
Condo insurance policies cover the cost of your belongings and any renovations to your unit, such as upgraded fixtures and hardwood floors.
They also include liability insurance if someone is injured on site. Additional living expenses are usually also included – should damage prevent you from staying in your unit.
Speak to one of our licenced brokers to review which coverages are right for you and your home:
Additional living expenses - Costs associated with having to temporarily live outside your unit, for example, at a hotel or in another rental unit.
Additional protection - Aspects of your unit, such as the glass door opening to your balcony, which aren’t covered by the building’s insurance.
Personal liability - Protection if someone is accidentally injured in the unit.
Personal property - The contents of your unit, including belongings like clothing, furniture and entertainment equipment.
Unit betterments - Upgrades made by you, or the previous owner, to your unit. This includes coverage for damage to things like your hardwood floors, built-in shelves and upgraded light fixtures and faucets.
Unit loss - Protects you financially, up to the insured amount, for any charges you’re on the hook for due to damage not covered by other insurance – the building’s or another unit holder’s.
One of our licenced brokers will work one-on-one with you, reviewing the details of your policy and its associated condo insurance rate.

How to make a condo insurance claim.
If your home and belongings have been damaged, lost or stolen, remember these three essential steps to making a condo insurance claim:
List your damaged, lost or stolen property.
Call your insurance broker to be connected to a claims agent.
When speaking with your claims agent, inquire about any deadlines or terms that may apply to your claim.
For example: What paperwork do you need to file immediately? Can you work with your own contractors, or, do they need to be approved by your insurance company?

Dwelling type - Your rate may differ depending on whether your condo is in a building or is a townhouse.
Upgrades to the unit - If you’ve upgraded your unit since it was built, your premiums may be higher.
Details of the condo insurance policy holder are also important, including:
Claims history - Your condo insurance costs are impacted by the volume of insurance claims you’ve made in the past. If you’ve made one within the last decade, your premiums could be higher.
Pets - Your pet could affect your premiums, particularly if they’re known for being aggressive, or, are exotic or illegal.
Rentals – If you’re planning to regularly rent out your condo on a platform like Airbnb, your rates may be higher. Or, you may require specialized insurance.
