Condo Insurance in Ontario

If you are looking for condo insurance in Ontario, there are a few factors that will affect your rate. This includes your location, when the condo was built, the construction of the building, how many floors the building has, the value of your possessions and the deductible you want.

Condo insurance isn’t as straightforward as home insurance. Most condominium associations will offer three types of policies:
$
A policy that insures only the primary building and common areas
$
A policy that insures your building and any items in your unit (other than personal property)
$
A policy that insures the building, your unit and any fixtures or improvements you make to your unit.
With the help from isure, we can go over your needs and determine which policy will be best for you.

Ontario Condo Insurance FAQs

Is there a difference between personal and corporation condo insurance?
Yes. The main difference between the two policies is that corporation condo insurance covers the whole building, while personal condo insurance covers your individual unit. As an example, if somebody got injured in a common area of the condo (like the lobby,) then the corporation condo insurance would cover that incident. On the other hand, if somebody got injured inside of your unit, your personal condo insurance policy would come into play.
Why do I need personal condo insurance?
Although condo insurance isn’t required by law, it is essential if you want to protect your unit and belongings. Most condo buildings will have Condo Corporation Coverage, but that will only cover the building itself and common areas like the fitness centre, elevators and lobby. When you purchase a personal condo insurance policy, you can protect the following:

● Your belongings and property
● If you make improvements to your condo unit, including upgrading your countertops, cabinets, flooring, etc.
● Personal liability if something gets damaged in another unit or if a visitor gets injured in your unit.
● Other events that cause damage to your unit or the units around you. For example, if a pipe were to burst in your unit and causes water damage to your downstairs neighbour’s unit, you could be on the hook for the condo corporation’s policy deductible.

I rent out my condo. Are there different options I should be aware of?
If you rent out your condo, there are two perils that you can consider adding to your personal condo insurance policy:

1. Unit Protection – If your occupant causes damage to your unit, it may not be covered under your current coverage. Speak with an isure broker to go over your policy to see if you require more coverage options.

2. Rental Income Protection – To help protect your monthly rental income, you can add protection for fair rental value and additional living expenses. This is a great option as it may protect your income if your unit becomes uninhabitable.

Do I need extended water damage coverage?
Did you know that the most common claim for personal condo insurance is water damage? Under your regular personal condo insurance policy, you will likely be covered for water damage caused by a leak from a tap or a burst pipe, but it won’t cover every type of water damage. If you add the extended water damage option, you will be protected from damage caused by water that enters your condo from a flood, a failed sump pump or a septic back up.
