We all have the same feelings about our home whether it is a standalone home, attached home, a condo, a rental dwelling, or a multi-million dollar estate home. For most of us, our home is a culmination of our lifetime’s worth of hard work and sacrifice. This means that if there is a loss , it can be devastating!
Due to this, choosing your mode of buying coverage for your valuables is of the utmost importance and your choice should only be made by an independent insurance broker. At Aaxel , we can design a perfect plan for all your habitational insurance needs whether they be condo, home, or tenants insurance.
Having the right home and contents insurance can give you the confidence to relax and enjoy your home.
Let’s say your house is destroyed by fire or damaged by a natural disaster – you would then need money to repair or replace it. A guest in your home is injured – liability protection may help pay expenses. Or even if you are a victim of theft or vandalism – your home owners insurance can pay your loss or the cost of repairs.
Should your home be destroyed or seriously damaged, failure to accurately insure your property can delay the processing of your claim and in some cases, result in insufficient funds being available to properly rebuild your home.
Additionally, Canadian life is full of sports and most of us Canadians have valuable toys as a result. This is why we have very comparative solutions for all your toys.
Property Insurance Coverage
Every home is different. That’s why it is so important to have the right protection for your dwelling. Sometimes called fire insurance, home insurance is generally broken down into four categories:
- Home owners
- Condo unit owners
- Seasonal Home/Cottage
Depending on which insurance policy you need, your Aaxel Insurance Brokers will guide you through the coverage and put together a program that suits your needs.
Personal Liability (Bodily injury & Property damage)
It covers against your personal liability if you are held liable and pays for the potential legal fees to protect you (e.g. a guest in your home is injured – liability protection may help pay expenses).
It covers against loss to your home from an insured peril. These perils include, but are not limited to: fire loss, vandalism, etc.
It is covered under the home owner’s policy and is usually a percentage of the dwelling limit (e.g. 70%). Coverage is provided on a worldwide basis. Items such as watches, jewellery, bicycles etc. have sub limits specified within the policy.
Items with dollar value above a certain amount such as jewellery items like diamond rings, bracelets, watches etc. should be scheduled on the policy to insure them properly.
Outbuildings are covered and are usually a percentage of the dwelling limit.
Additional Living Expenses
When an insured loss happens the insurer provides coverage for your move to a temporary location and pays for the additional living expenses associated with this move.
Sewer Back Coverage
It is an optional coverage but very important nonetheless. Sewer Back Coverage covers against loss to contents and building due to sewer backup.
Coverage is available from certain insurance companies and they have quite different coverage as well.
Additional Protection / Umbrella Policy
Personal Umbrella Policy
Your home and auto policies already provide basic liability protection. However, as your assets increase, so does your liability exposure. A Personal Umbrella Policy can increase your liability coverage at a reasonable cost and give you peace of mind.
Why Umbrella Policy?
Once the liability limits are exhausted on your home or auto policy, your umbrella policy takes over and provides another layer of liability protection should you be sued and found legally liable for causing injury to someone else or damaging their respective property.
Due to the average size of jury awards having increased in the past few years, umbrella insurance has become far more important.
Best of all, the average cost for this protection is less than a dollar a day. Ask your trustworthy Aaxel insurance Broker today about how you can protect you and your family from an unexpected claim.
