Why insurance for rental property owners?

As a rental property owner, you owe it to yourself to protect this asset, which is not only a source of income but also a long-term investment. Protect your property with our specially designed insurance for building owners.

You could benefit from coverage against damage to your building in the event of a claim, as well as compensation for any resulting loss of income with the addition of Rental Value coverage.

Example: A pipe breaks in your triplex and causes major water damage to the basement apartment, which will be uninhabitable until repairs are made.

Coverage designed for you

Basic Coverage

Recommended

Civil liability

Civil liability coverage is strongly recommended. It covers harm that you may unintentionally cause to others.

Example: A delivery driver is injured when they slip on your building entrance’s icy steps.

Recommended

Specified perils

We cover your property against the risks listed in the insurance contract, including fire, theft and vandalism.

Note that while we don’t cover your tenants’ belongings, we do cover yours if you have any. If so, it’s important to let us know. Examples would include appliances in a semi-furnished apartment, maintenance equipment stored in the basement of the building, etc.

Recommended

Broad

This coverage provides protection against risks beyond those covered under Specified Perils. It is our most comprehensive coverage for an income property, as certain protections are enhanced, particularly those relating to the residential building.

It also provides you with access to more comprehensive options regarding risks such as water damage.

What it covers:

  • Residential building and any permanent equipment inside, such as a heat pump, for example.
  • Outbuildings: This refers to any additional structure that is not physically attached to the dwelling and that is permanently installed on the insured premises. Examples: shed, garage.

Additional Coverage Options

Water damage

Did you know that water damage accounts for nearly half of all home insurance claims in Quebec? That's why it's important to have good coverage and to know how to prevent water damage.

Groundwater and sewer

No more worrying about sewer backups with this coverage for your belongings against accidental water damage as a result of:

  • Water seeping through your foundation
  • A broken or malfunctioning sump pump

Our flexible coverage is among the best on the market. You can tailor the coverage to your personal needs.

Above-ground water

This coverage protects you against water damage caused by sudden, accidental water leakage through the roof, doors, windows, etc.

Rental value

This option protects your rental income. We cover the loss of rental income when, as a result of a covered loss, the building becomes completely or partially unusable. This coverage applies while the premises are being refurbished, for a maximum of 12 months.

Water inlet

This coverage pays the costs of demolition and repair to fix a water inlet. It’s a low cost option compared to the expense of repairing water damage. Read this article for all the details.

Fuel oil overflow or leaks

This option covers damage to the building and insured property caused by an accidental leak or overflow from an oil tank, a pipe to the furnace or connected system components. Decontamination is included in the coverage.

Earthquake

This option covers damage caused by an earthquake and any subsequent damage, like water seeping through a window that was damaged during the quake.

Even though major earthquakes are rare in Quebec, there are hundreds of small tremors in eastern Canada every year. Read this article to learn how to protect yourself in an earthquake
