Welcome to simplified condominium insurance
It is estimated that just 40% of condo home owners have the right insurance coverage. Condo insurance is more complex because you have two insurance policies; one that is arranged by the condo board (or ‘strata council’ in BC) that you pay for in your maintenance fees, and one that you need for yourself.
We’ve simplified the complexities of condo insurance because we believe it’s crucial that you have the right coverage. You should have coverage for any improvements to your unit, your personal belongings (such as furniture, clothes, and electronics), and coverage for liability. If you are found responsible for damage to other areas of your building, you may be liable to pay the deductible on your building’s insurance policy. Depending on your building, the deductible could be between $5,000 and $200,000. We highly recommend that you ask your property manager or the condominium board what the building’s deductible is so you can buy the right level of protection.
