We offer comprehensive packages from a wide range of competitive Insurers, to cover your:
Personal Property Insurance to Value
It is important to take care with the amount of insurance you choose for your home.
Other coverage amounts on your policy, such as the allocation for contents, are also usually proportioned to the building amount. Taking the time to understand how your coverage works can help you make sure the things you value are adequately covered, starting with the correct replacement cost for your home.
This number is not the same as the real estate value – it is what it would cost to rebuild your home, as a single, priority project, after a loss. Remember that usual economies of scale or scheduling are not available for a rush, unplanned reconstruction. Building materials may not be readily available and premiums will have to be paid to obtain necessary skilled workers. The builder will also in-cure expenses for clean up and demolition even before any re-construction can begin.
Your FCA broker can help you determine what the appropriate insurance amount should be to ensure that everything you value is adequately covered. They will work with you, using the current information about your home, to find the most accurate number. Also, they can assist you in arranging for Insurers or an independent appraiser to evaluate your property.
Residential Home / Cottage / Condo
Your home is your castle. And whether it’s a Residential Home, Cottage or a Condo, it’s one of your most valuable assets. And it needs to be protected accordingly.
With changes in weather patterns, water damage claims, such as major sewer back-up losses, are becoming more and more common. Aging infrastructure of our municipal systems can also contribute to the problem. There are measures that homeowners can take, however, to reduce potential water damage losses, such as the installation of back-up valves and humidity alarms.
Condominiums are similar to homes, but also need extra specifically-designed protections for condo unit owners to cover your share of potential assessments for damage to common areas or your unit itself.
Wherever your home, there are a number of things your FCA advisor can help you with, to protect its security:
- Deciding the correct amount of insurance to protect your valued possessions
- Evaluating different kinds of coverage available
- Choosing an Insurance company that suits your needs
- Advising you of new options, like Identity Theft or Legal Expense coverage, available to enhance your protection
While automobile policies are government-regulated and are therefore largely standardized, your policy should still be tailored to your own needs with appropriate limits, deductibles, and discounts.
