News of Your Home Insurance Policy
There has been some significant changes to Habitational policies; all property policies will now have a minimum $1,000 deductible which means, in the event of a loss (claim) you will be responsible for the first $1,000 in damages. Please note, an option to “buy back” a $300 or $500 deductible is available.
Overland Water Endorsement is now available! This new product which is an enhancement to the Sewer Backup endorsement, will provide coverage for rapid accumulation of torrential rainfall & snow melt and the rising, breaking out of overflow of any body of fresh water.
Depending on the area you live in and the claims experience of your neighbourhood your “Sewer Backup” coverage may change from “policy limit” to a $50,000 “policy limit”. There is an option to buy a $100,000 “policy limit”.
A new discount is available:
- Is your basement unfinished or partially finished? A new discount has been introduced and is based on the percentage of the finished area. The discount applies to the “sewer backup” premium only.
Other Endorsements worth considering:
- · Personal Property Claim Protector protects your “Claims Free Discount” following your first claim.
- · Disappearing Deductible reduces the deductible on your property insurance by 20% of the original deductible amount, for each consecutive year the location is claims free.
If you are interested in having these “endorsements” added to your policy, please give us a call.
