Toronto Condo Special Assessment Insurance

Why Should you be Scared?

Why should you be afraid of Special Assessments? We have that covered!

 

You can indeed get coverage for Special Assessments in a Condominium

1) You are covered; If through the Title Insurance it was OMITTED from the Status Certificate 

2) You are covered; Through your Home Insurance Coverage 

 

 II.  SPECIAL ASSESSMENT INSURANCE
A unit owner can also obtain insurance coverage specifically for special assessments. This coverage will benefit a unit owner in circumstances where a condominium corporation suffers an insured loss, the insurance proceeds are inadequate to cover the costs, and the corporation levies a special assessment for the difference. This would only occur in very unusual circumstances.
A real life example involves a condominium corporation that incurred environmental clean-up costs because of a heating oil leak into the common elements. The town home units in this condominium had oil tanks that were buried in the common elements, which serviced each individual unit’s furnace. Pipes ran through the concrete basement floors of the units from the heaters to the oil tanks. As a result of a pipe break, oil seeped into the ground and the resulting environmental clean-up cost was over $300,000.

If you have not requested this coverage from your Independant Insurance Broker  I suggest you pick up the phone immediately and call someone who knows.
