Strata Condo Insurance

General

Posted by: Angela Calla

There may be a little relief coming for condo owners who may be affected by the skyrocketing Condo Insurance premiums.

The IBABC is getting involved by proposing two main reforms to provincial legislation:

  1. a $50,000 cap on the deductible assessment and non-insured loss assessment
  2. a change in standard definition of a strata unit to ensure the basic components of a condo such as walls, ceilings, drywall, sub-floor, basic electrical & plumbing are covered by strata insurance

This may not bring total relief but could ease the pain a bit, pending the insurers agree. Here is a link to the statement fro IBABC:  2020 Strata Insurance Media Release
